Not only is Tyreek Hill one of the most dynamic and explosive players in the NFL, but those adjectives can be used to describe his personality as well.
Hill is unafraid to take to social media or a microphone to voice his opinion and to get off a few jokes at the expense of his former team. That is exactly what he did on Thursday morning as Hill went viral for his defense of his current Miami Dolphins quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa, and for a lack of invites from his former quarterback, Patrick Mahomes.
Tyreek Hill Defends Tua Tagovailoa
Bright and early Thursday morning, as he was watching television, assumedly getting ready for his day to start, Hill took to social media to defend his quarterback. While watching an episode of ESPN’s Get Up, Hill took offense to the way they were talking about Miami’s QB.
“I’m currently watching this guy’s talk on Get Up, Tua may be the most underrated QB in the league and it’s sad.”
Hill has been extremely supportive of Tua since he arrived in South Beach, and with Hill’s help, Tagovailoa is squarely in the MVP mix right now.
Despite that, Hill did not like the way the cast was talking about Tua and his play. Thus, he took to his social media account to make sure that anybody else watching knew where he stood on the matter.
‘I Was Hurt’ – Hill Jokes About Not Getting Same Treatment as Travis Kelce
Defending Tua wasn’t the only reason why Hill was going viral Thursday morning. Not much long after his Get Up tweet, a clip of Hill talking with former NFL quarterback and current analyst Robert Griffin III on the latest episode of RG3 and the Ones went viral for his remarks regarding Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce.
Hill says that the reason he moved on to the Dolphins was that Mahomes would invite Travis Kelce to his house, but he wouldn’t get the invite as well.
“I was hurt. Patrick, you ain’t never invited me over to your house like you did Kelce, that’s why we here where we at now,” Hill said. “I’ve never been anybody’s side chick before. I go to KC, now I’m the side chick.”
Hill was just joking around, as he is very much still friends with all parties involved. It’s just another case of Hill using his platform and showing off the sense of humor he has — even if it’s at the expense of his former teammates.
