Tyreek Hill Contract Update: The Latest on Miami Dolphins WR From Mike McDaniel

    Following Justin Jefferson's massive extension on Monday, what's the latest update on Miami Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill's contract?

    MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Wide receiver Tyreek Hill has explicitly told the Miami Dolphins that he wants to retire as a member of the franchise.

    “I think me as a competitor, I want to make that happen,” coach Mike McDaniel said Tuesday.

    Whether the two sides can agree on the financial parameters of a long-term contract extension that makes that possible is far less definitive, however.

    Tyreek Hill Contract Update

    McDaniel told reporters before Tuesday’s mandatory minicamp that Hill is present at team HQ, but won’t participate in team drills during practice.

    However, that might have more to do with the team protecting Hill from injury than a reflection of his unhappiness with his contract situation.

    But to be clear, Hill wants a raise, particularly after Justin Jefferson’s mega payday this week.

    “JJettas that’s well deserved,” Hill wrote on X shortly after details of Jefferson’s four-year, $140 million extension was made public Monday.

    That’s a lot more than the Cheetah is making. Hill is in Year 2 of the four-year, $120 million contract extension he signed in March 2022 after the Dolphins acquired him from the Kansas City Chiefs via trade.

    The Chiefs allowed Hill to explore a trade that winter because he wanted a raise and they weren’t willing to meet his asking price.

    Could history repeat itself three years later?

    Certainly, Hill is very much part of the Dolphins’ plans in 2024. And his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, is actively advocating for his client to stay here long-term.

    “Let’s just say it’s safe to acknowledge that I’ve been in touch with Chris Grier and Brandon Shore of the Dolphins,” Rosenhaus said on WSVN-7 in Miami Sunday night. “I certainly have a fluid line of communication with them, and I’ve shared with them how Tyreek feels. I’ll also reiterate that Tyreek has said that he would love to finish his career with the Dolphins. Without getting into any more specifics, the Dolphins know how we feel.”

    While Hill technically has three years left on his deal, it’s hard to envision the Dolphins paying him for that final season what that contract dictates: A staggering $45 million in base salary with a $56.3 million cap figure.

    So in reality, Hill has two years left on his current deal. He will earn $19.8 million in cash in 2024 (currently the 14th-most of all NFL wide receivers) and is scheduled to earn $22.9 million more (fourth) in 2025.

    “Tyreek Hill has been unbelievably valuable to my coaching career, this franchise,” McDaniel said. “We set out to do some ambitious things from the onset and, and on top of the fact that he wanted to take his game to another level, but also be a leader, he’s tremendously important. We’ve always prioritized him that way.”
