When the Chiefs and Hill couldn’t agree with their contract extension talks, the Dolphins quickly came up with a trade package to acquire the All-Pro wideout.
Miami might have lost five draft picks in the process, but they could not care less given the talent they amassed this offseason.
As soon as Hill joined Miami, he also agreed on a four-year, $120 million extension that will start in 2023.
Out of that amount, Hill will get $72.2 million in guaranteed money, including $52.5 million upon signing.
Now that the process is over, agent Drew Rosenhaus revealed to Buffalo Bills beat reporter Sal Capaccio how the deal went through.
From Tyreek Hills' agent Drew Rosenhaus this morning with @JoeRoseShow on @560WQAM: Chiefs had trade parameters worked out with both Jets and Dolphins. Both were approved. It was then about Hill's preference and working out the contract based on that.

Capaccio tweeted, “From Tyreek Hills’ agent Drew Rosenhaus this morning with @JoeRoseShow on @560WQAM: Chiefs had trade parameters worked out with both Jets and Dolphins. Both were approved. It was then about Hill’s preference and working out the contract based on that.”
Earlier reports revealed that the New York Jets’ trade package did not include a first-round selection.
But if the decision went down to Hill’s preference, he’d select the team with the better chance of making the playoffs.
Dolphins On The Rise
Hill can make an immediate impact with the Dolphins as their primary deep threat.
It will also be scary for opposing defensive backs to stop either him or Waddle.
But based on last year’s performances, the Dolphins nearly made the playoffs.
Therefore, Hill can be the player that can get them over the hump.
In contrast, the Jets have a long way to go, especially with the uncertainty surrounding Zach Wilson in his second season.
