Following the Kansas City Chiefs’ victory over the Miami Dolphins, tight end Travis Kelce showered Tyreek Hill with praise, highlighting his exceptional abilities.
“Seeing him live, he’s gotta be the best ticket in the NFL,” Kelce expressed. “Seeing that dude live is the most exciting thing you can see in the NFL. It’s unbelievable.
You put him with [Jaylen] Waddle and all the other speedsters that they have, and that’s a damn good and exciting offense to play in, I’m sure,” Kelce shared on The New Heights podcast Presented by Wave Sports + Entertainment.
Kelce also acknowledged the success of Hill’s journey after leaving the Chiefs’ organization. “You don’t always see success stories when a guy leaves an organization like Tyreek did, man, it’s just good to see him,” Kelce stated.
“You know, it seems like he’s still enjoying life the way that we know him to, and sure enough, he’s looking like he’s going to break the record for most receiving yards in a season,” he added.
Furthermore, Kelce expressed his happiness for Hill’s achievements and felt that Hill never received the credit he deserved during his time with the Chiefs.
“And I couldn’t be happier for him, man… I don’t think he ever got the credit he deserved for being the best receiver in the league when he was here. I think him going to Miami and essentially doing the same thing he was doing here and taking it up a notch.
He’s finally being regarded as the best receiver in the league, and I think that was something he always knew in his heart he was, and we were always telling people, but it’s just good to see now,” Kelce shared.
In the current season, Tyreek Hill has accumulated impressive statistics, recording 69 receptions for 1,076 yards and eight touchdowns in just nine games. Notably, Hill became the fourth player in NFL history to reach 1,000 receiving yards in only eight games.
Although the Chiefs managed to contain Hill to eight receptions for 62 yards and a fumble in their recent game against the Dolphins, he still has a significant opportunity to surpass Calvin Johnson’s all-time single-season receiving yards record.
Travis Kelce’s admiration for Tyreek Hill’s unmatched greatness serves as a testament to Hill’s impact on the field and his growing recognition as one of the league’s top receivers.
