Report: NFL concludes investigation into Tyreek Hill’s offseason incident

3 Min Read

The NFL reportedly will not take any action against Tyreek Hill for allegedly assaulting a man in June.

The league reportedly was investigating the matter and could have issued discipline under its personal conduct policy. The Miami-Dade Police Department did not file charges against Hill, and the wide receiver reached a settlement with his accuser in July.

The altercation occurred June 18 on a boat in Miami-Dade County. Hill got on a privately docked fishing boat, but its captain told him to leave. The Dolphins star became verbally enraged, and he ended up allegedly slapping the captain. Hill reportedly later offered the captain $200 and an apology, but the captain turned down the offer.

Having all of this behind them is very good news for the Dolphins as they prepare for what is expected to be one of their most successful seasons in decades. Miami is considered to be one of the favorites to win the AFC East and are viewed as having a good chance to reach the Super Bowl for the first time since the 1984 season.

None of that likely would be possible without Hill on the field as much as possible, and now the looming possibility of an in-season suspension no longer exists. The 29-year-old record a career-high 1,710 receiving yards and seven touchdown catches last season, his first with the Dolphins after being acquired in a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Hill’s confidence in himself mirrors the expectations surrounding the team. The seven-time Pro Bowl selection has said he believes he can become the first NFL player to gain 2,000 receiving yards in a season.

Paired with Jaylen Waddle, Hill gives quarterback Tua Tagovailoa arguably the top receiving duo in the NFL to throw to. The 25-year-old last season had 3,548 passing yards and 25 touchdown passes playing in just 13 games.

The Dolphins open the 2023 NFL season on Sept. 10 at the Los Angeles Chargers and will be trying to make the playoffs in back-to-back seasons for the first time since the early 2000s. They now know they can comfortably move forward with arguably their best offensive player free of any possible off-field setbacks regarding this matter.
