Chiefs 'deeply disturbed' by Tyreek Hill audio, WR barred from team activities

The Statement: Following comments from Chiefs general manager Brett Veach on Thursday after the draft, the team has now followed with a printed statement.

Hill is entering the final year of his rookie contract, and the Chiefs have little depth at wide receiver. "My son's health and happiness is my number one priority", according to a statement by his legal team reported by the Kansas City Star's Chiefs reporter, Brooke Pryor.

Prosecutors reopened the case on Friday after receiving the audio from a local TV station.

The audio includes Hill outright denying he broke his son's arm, which led to the child being removed from the home.

A Kansas prosecutor has reopened a domestic violence investigation involving suspended Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill, his coach said Friday. "We're going to gather more information, we're going to evaluate this information, and we'll make the right decision regarding Tyreek Hill".

"We were deeply disturbed by what we heard, we were deeply concerned".

Kansas City CBS affiliate KCTV5 obtained a recording during which the Kansas City Chiefs receiver and Espinal discussed their three-year-old's broken arm.

The recording surfaced one day after prosecutors said they believed abuse had occurred in Hill's home last month but that they could not press charges because it was unclear who committed the crime.

On Wednesday, Howe, the district attorney, announced his office would not charge Hill or Espinal but said he believed a crime had occurred.

He was also one of the most electric return men in the NCAA, as you might expect with his speed, and he has the athleticism to be a weapon on sweeps as Hill was. The NFL is also involved in the case, and it's possible that Roger Goodell could place Hill on the commissioner's exempt list.

All of this comes after the Chiefs released their star running back Kareem Hunt back in November, following a video recording of Hunt involved in a physical altercation with a woman outside of a hotel room.

"Before you are given the opportunity for a second chance, you better be doing the right things", Reid said.

Hunt said that the Chiefs have not necessarily changed how they vet players, whether in the draft or acquired through trades and free agency.

"Could be his playing ability. Then if he gets in trouble, you get the belt out", she says. That's a risk you take.
