On Friday, the NFL announced its decision on whether or not it would suspend Tyreek Hill. The explosive wideout from the Kansas City Chiefs faced a potential suspension due to a child-abuse investigation and comments he made on a secret recording.

The NFL decided that it wouldn't suspend Hill because it didn't believe he violated league policy.

Last month, the Pro Bowl wide receiver met with the NFL for eight hours to discuss the incident. It appears that Hill displayed enough evidence to prove that his actions didn't warrant a suspension.

According to Terez Paylor of Yahoo Sports, Hill provided text messages to league investigators to support his claims that he didn't partake in any wrongful acts.

From Yahoo Sports:

The NFL’s judgment supports the notion that the evidence Hill and his attorneys provided league investigators during an eight-hour meeting on June 26 was significant, as sources told Yahoo Sports that Hill included text messages supporting the assertions he made in his own defense in a four-page letter he sent the NFL in early May regarding the child abuse case. Authorities were looking into the welfare of Hill's 3-year-old son who suffered a broken arm. 

With most of the dust settling from this situation, the Chiefs can expect Hill to join the team at training camp.

Prior to this investigation, Kansas City wanted to negotiate a long-term deal with Hill. We'll see if both parties decide to revisit those talks.
