The speedy wide receiver secured victory in Super Bowl LIV with the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2019 season before making a high-profile move to the Dolphins in a blockbuster trade in 2022.
Known as ‘Cheetah,’ he recently featured on CBS’ Champions League coverage, expressing his confidence that his current team has what it takes to clinch the Vince Lombardi Trophy this season. Hill emphasized the Dolphins’ perfect team composition, praising the coaching staff’s preparation and the team’s commitment to the game plan.
In a bold statement, Hill compared his current Dolphins squad to the 2019 Chiefs, suggesting that the Miami team might be superior. Such a declaration may not sit well with Kansas City fans. According to Hill, the Dolphins’ head coach provides a next-level preparation that fosters unity among the players, creating a unique and exceptional team dynamic.
The Dolphins, with Hill as a key player, currently boast an 8-3 record heading into Week 13, securing the top spot in the AFC East. Despite this achievement, they hold the No.4 seed in the playoffs, trailing behind the Jaguars, Chiefs, and Ravens.
During the broadcast, Hill also shared an interesting tidbit about his athletic background, revealing that he had the potential to become a soccer star. He played soccer until middle school, displaying notable skills as a striker with exceptional athleticism, speed, and agility. However, his mother encouraged him to focus solely on American football, a sport deeply ingrained in their family tradition.
Reflecting on his journey, Hill acknowledged that choosing football over soccer was the right decision. Since entering the NFL in 2016, he has consistently earned Pro Bowl honors and reached the Super Bowl twice, securing victory once. In his inaugural full season with the Dolphins last year, Hill set a career-best with 1,710 receiving yards, and in the current season, he leads the NFL in receiving yards with an impressive 1,324.
