The situation hadn’t been talked about for a while until Monday afternoon when Evan Feldman, the attorney for the man Hill supposedly hit, and Julius Collins, Hill’s attorney, released a joint statement. The sides reached a settlement.
“The parties to the incident which occurred on June 18th, 2023 at the Haulover Marina involving Tyreek Hill have resolved their differences,” Feldman and Collins said.
Dolphins fans are surely happy about the outcome of the situation, though it will be interesting to see if the NFL decides to hand down a punishment on Hill. The league had reportedly been investigating the situation.
Despite having a dark cloud hang over his head for some part of the offseason, Hill hasn’t been shy in talking about what he expects to accomplish this season with the Dolphins.
The seven-time Pro Bowler recently said that he’s going to become the first player to record 2,000 receiving yards in a season and also claimed that his team will win this coming season’s Super Bowl.
Those are obviously some bold predictions to make, but given that the former fifth-round pick gets “goosebumps” when thinking about what’s ahead for the Dolphins, it’s easy to understand why he’s made such confident statements.
Hill and other Dolphins veterans are set to report to training camp on Tuesday, with rookie having already reported last week.
Much of the team’s offense is still the same, though new additions like Braxton Berrios and De’Von Achane could play big roles. It will be interesting to see who steps up at tight end with Mike Gesicki now on the New England Patriots.
Of course, a solid amount of the team’s major additions this offseason have come on the defensive side of the ball. Jalen Ramsey will form an elite cornerback duo with Xavien Howard. Rookie defensive back Cam Smith should also see tons of snaps in his first year with team. Linebacker David Long Jr. is also expected to make a big impact.
The Dolphins should be one of the top contenders in the AFC this season as long as they stay healthy. Another run to the postseason could easily result in the team’s first playoff victory in over two decades.
