Tyreek Hill’s Flawed Contract: Will He Demand Reevaluation after Recent Negotiations?

Tyreek Hill’s contract is not holding up well

Recently, Tyreek Hill signed a contract that made him the highest-paid receiver in football, with an average of $30 million per year. However, there are two issues with this contract. Firstly, the $30 million figure is inflated due to the final year’s compensation greatly increasing the average. In reality, Hill’s three-year extension is valued at $75 million, which equates to a new-money average of $25 million.

Secondly, other players have secured contracts with higher real new-money averages than Hill without the need for fake final years. For example, Amon-Ra St. Brown, A.J. Brown and Nico Collins all have better deals than Hill’s current one. This means that Hill may be feeling undervalued and may seek a renegotiation despite being signed for three more years.

Hill’s recent comments about wanting to play in Miami forever may not be entirely sincere as he may also be looking for a fair pay increase as other receivers sign lucrative contracts. If Justin Jefferson or Ja’Marr Chase secure higher deals, Hill may demand an upgrade as well. At a time when the Dolphins are focusing on extending Tua Tagovailoa’s contract, they should also consider ensuring their highest-paid player is content with their deal to avoid any agitation from Hill for a new one, similar to what happened when Davante Adams secured a significant contract and prompted Hill’s desire for an upgrade.

In conclusion, while Tyreek Hill is currently the highest-paid receiver in football on paper, his contract has some flaws that could lead him to seek renegotiations if he doesn’t feel fairly compensated by other players in his position who have secured better deals recently.
