“We’re pleased we were able to reach an agreement with Tyreek to keep him in a Chiefs uniform for the foreseeable future,” Chiefs General Manager Brett Veach said. “He understands our expectations of him as a member of this team and community. This extension is contingent upon the conditions Tyreek agreed to adhere to upon his return to the team in July. Tyreek is an elite player in this league and has played a major role in our team’s success, and we’re pleased that he’ll continue to make an impact for us.”

With this new deal, Hill will receive $18 million in annual salary. It will match the contract that the Cleveland Browns are paying wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity to continue my playing career here in Kansas City,” Hill said. “Kansas City is my home, and I appreciate the love and support from Clark Hunt, Coach Reid and Brett Veach along with my coaches and teammates. To Chiefs Kingdom, you’re the best fans in the world.”

Hill was the team’s fifth round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. He has spent the last three seasons with the team.

He has appeared in 16 games, including 16 starts. He had 87 receptions for 1,479 yards and 12 touchdowns during the 2018 season.

In his three-year career, he has appeared in 47 games, including 30 starts. He has had 223 receptions for 3,255 yards and 25 touchdowns.
