For months now, fans have been wondering whether the Dolphins’ Tyreek Hill would be following in the steps of the controversial wide receiver, Antonio Brown. After all, the 30-year-old had claimed that he was the GOAT even though he had walked off the field during a match between his former team, the Buccaneers, and the Jets. Now, it looks like the two athletes might get along better than everyone expected.

In the debut episode of Brown’s CTESPN podcast, he invited the Cheetah, Tyreek Hill. Apart from comparing stats and sharing traumas, the football stars seemed to connect. In fact, the 35-year-old even told the younger star to “take a moment and just acknowledge” his work. The host stated, “Bro look at these numbers back to back last four years bro you f*cking back to back 1700 only two probably four players did 1,700 back to back bro that’s the elite company.”

Brown continued to be impressed by Hill as he added, “4 years plus 12200 8 years 2,000 yards ahead bro that’s Hall of Fame trajectory, that’s where you want to be, man. I’m excited for you.” Apart from complimenting the former Chiefs player’s stats and numbers, the Miami-born also hyped up the wide receiver by stating that he would make it to “the game next year” to “feel the energy.” In fact, he even promised to bring his “gang” with him.

Brown might be planning a support party from the bleachers. However, Hill may have a little more on his mind after opening up about his plans to retire.

Tyreek Hill reveals where he wishes to retire

A month ago, the Cheetah made a startling revelation that he plans to retire when his contract with the Miami Dolphins ends. The wide receiver had initially signed with the team back in 2022 after being traded by the Chiefs. The 30-year-old had signed a 4-year deal amounting to $120 million. However, with the athlete wanting to finish 10 seasons before he moved on from the NFL, his contract might have to be extended.

With the contract set to expire at the end of 2025, it could be the perfect time for Hill to hang up his helmet and shoulder pads. After all, the star already seemed to pace his way into the MMA world when he challenged Jake Paul to a fight a while ago. So far, there is no saying whether the 30-year-old could stick to his plan or wind up going the distance with his newfound team after all.

The wide receiver seems sure about retiring in Miami. However, one thing the 30-year-old cannot let himself have is another receiver with a higher contract than him. Most recently, AJ Brown has taken over the top spot with an annual of $32 million in his updated contract.

Although Hill was once at the top spot of highest-paid wide receivers, it looks like the 30-year-old seems to have slipped down to No. 3 with his $30 million per year.
