KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Brett Veach thought he had come to peace last spring with the Kansas City Chiefs' decision to trade one of the NFL's premier wide receivers, Tyreek Hill. The Chiefs general manager had talked for days about a potential deal involving Hill with other team officials, including coach Andy Reid.
The decision to trade Hill wasn't easy for Veach and the Chiefs. Hill was their leading wide receiver in each of his six pro seasons. He accounted for 25% of the targets from quarterback Patrick Mahomes last season, the 12th-highest team share in the league per NFL Next Gen Stats, and caught a Chiefs-record 111 passes.
