Don't get me wrong as I like the Tyreek Hill trade, but there are always problems with paying a player this kind of money. First, they rarely play as well as they did prior to the contract. Second, they are usually "Me first" kind of people and complain when they do not get the ball enough. Last year he had 111 receptions and he still complained. It could be because they lost some of those games and he felt if he'd gotten more opportunities/better plays called they could have won. I think he's been a very good leader so far, but he is running his mouth too much. Waddle isn't there to draw double-teams away from him, but to be the next Tyreek Hill.

One of the more interesting aspects of the podcast was the look back at Hill’s time in Kansas City and revealed that he was texting Rosenhaus after games to complain about his usage.https://dolphinswire.usatoday.com/2022/ ... -comments/
This is the same year that Hill recorded a career-high 111 receptions, 1,239 yards and nine touchdowns on his way to his sixth straight Pro Bowl.
On Tuesday, NFL analyst Rich Eisen posed a fair question about these comments on “The Rich Eisen Show.”
“If he feels that way about [Patrick] Mahomes and [Andy] Reid, how’s he gonna feel about this new situation, when it doesn’t, invariably, go very well,” Eisen asked. “When Belichick might pull his Jedi mind tricks, his dark-side mind tricks on Tua [Tagovailoa]. And, he’s been paid now.”
