The Super Bowl Champion, popularly known as Cheetah, Tyreek Hill, needs no introduction. The 28-year-old WR is one of the most-looked upon talents since his rookie years. He earned the nickname ‘Cheetah’ for speed. Hill played for the Kansas City Chiefs from 2016 to 2021. The rising talent enjoyed a big fan following with his game skills. As a result, it came as a shock for some of his fans when he bid goodbye to the Chiefs and joined Miami Dolphins in the 2022 season.
