Tyreek Hill has finally revealed why he left the Kansas City Chiefs this offseason. 

In an interview on ESPN this Monday morning, Hill explained that he actually wanted to stay put in Kansas City. 

However, the Chiefs weren't willing to come anywhere close to the contract Davante Adams received - which is what Hill wanted. 

The Chiefs kept their money and said goodbye to one of the most explosive wideouts in the country. 

"Tyreek is telling you what has been reported (by myself and others) for months. The sides were expecting to get a deal done. Then the Adams trade/extension happened. The Chiefs weren’t going to pay that freight and traded him," said Matt Verderame.

This could come back to haunt the Chiefs. 

Let's not forget Hill was the hero of the Chiefs' Super Bowl victory a few years back. 

Now, Patrick Mahomes won't have his go-to, home-run, safe-throw target to work with in the Chiefs offense. Tua Tagovailoa will. 

The Miami Dolphins are poised for a breakout season.
