Tyreek Hill has been one of the NFL’s best wide receivers over the last several years, and in 2022 he took things to another level.
After spending his first six seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs and earning a Super Bowl ring there, he was traded to the Miami Dolphins, where he put up a career-high 1,710 yards in 2022.
But even though he is a wideout, Hill owns an interesting record that no one would’ve expected him to even come close to achieving.
With 7.5 yards per carry, he has the highest such average in NFL history.

That is the most in NFL history.

Last year, Hill had seven carries, bringing him to exactly 100 rush attempts for his career, which qualified him for the leaderboard in terms of yards per carry.
He may not be the type of versatile wide receiver that Deebo Samuel of the San Francisco 49ers is, but he has a superpower that cannot be matched by anyone else: his speed.
Hill is a blur running downfield, and he has been nicknamed “Cheetah” for that very reason.
After a promising but disappointing 2022 season, the Dolphins are hoping that Hill will help them take the next step and become Super Bowl contenders for the first time in decades.
They haven’t reached the Super Bowl since the 1984 campaign and they haven’t won a world championship since 1973.
Their hopes in 2023 will largely rest on the play and health of quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who was on his way to a breakout year until multiple concussions derailed it and limited him to 13 games.NEXT: The Dolphins Have Signed A Veteran Tight End
