Tyreek Hill shows off wildly impressive basketball skill set: ‘That’s what I do’

2 Min Read

New Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill is known as one of the most versatile players in the league today.

Recently, Hill also showcased his impressive basketball skills, hitting a long-range shot in the face of a defender before displaying his handling and finishing abilities.

The 28-year-old figures to be a huge addition to a Dolphins team that is looking to make a return to the playoffs after a five-year absence.

Hill entered the league in 2016 after the Kansas City Chiefs selected him in the fifth round of that year’s draft. He began his professional career as the team’s starting punt returner and kick returner. As a wide receiver, he was relatively low on the team’s depth chart.

It did not take long for Hill to make a name for himself. He earned multiple accolades for his work in the 2016 season, including a first-team All-Pro selection as a punt returner and Pro Bowl appearance as a return specialist.

In the 2019 season, the Georgia native helped Kansas City win a Super Bowl against the San Francisco 49ers. In the championship match, Hill caught nine passes for 105 yards.

The following season, Hill and the Chiefs reached the Super Bowl again. However, they lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Hill will have a fresh start in Miami this coming season. The Dolphins had to give up several draft picks to acquire him. But if Hill is able to help the team turn things around, then giving up that much draft capital will definitely be worth it.
