Dolphins' Tyreek Hill Reportedly Seeking New Deal

Miami Dolphins star receiver Tyreek Hill is looking to get paid. Even more.

Per Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, Hill would like to rework his contract — with, of course, a pay raise.

"Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the effort to address Hill's contract began after the 2023 season ended. That's when Hill had 1,799 receiving yards, despite a late-season ankle injury that derailed what seemed to be a likely 2,000-yard campaign," Florio wrote.

The effort intensified after Eagles receiver A.J. Brown got his latest new contract. Brown got his prior contract when Hill got his current one, and Brown had three years left on his contract. Like Hill does. Hill, as a practical matter, has two years left. That final year, at $45 million in cash, surely won't be paid."

This is just the price of success, as the Dolphins appear to be a squad on the rise. Hill, 30, is a massive part of that.

"While the Dolphins have a quarterback extension to worry about, and just agreed to a three-year, $84.75 million extension with Jaylen Waddle, it wouldn't be a bad idea to take care of Hill soon," wrote Jordan Dajani of CBS Sports. "This wide receiver market isn't going to slow down, as other stars like Justin Jefferson, CeeDee Lamb, Ja'Marr Chase and Brandon Aiyuk are looking to break financial records in the near future."

Again, winning doesn't come cheaply in the pro sports world of today. And sometimes you have to pay up even before you win anything meaningful.

Miami Dolphins, meet your current financial world.

"The time to get a new deal is now. He turned 30 on March 1. The market has gone up. The cap has gone up," Florio wrote. "It's entirely possible (if not probable . . . if not likely) that Vikings receiver Justin Jefferson will have a new contract as soon as next week. If that happens, it will re-set the market — and it will give Hill a new target."
