Kansas City Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt says the team will make the "right decision … at the right time" regarding wide receiver Tyreek Hill.
The Chiefs have had more than 48 hours since audio of Hill and fiancée Crystal Espinal discussing potential abuse of their 3-year-old son was released by KCTV in Kansas City. The Chiefs have barred Hill from offseason activities but have made no permanent decision about the status of their star wide receiver.
When the Chiefs released running back Kareem Hunt last year, the move happened on the same day video surfaced of the running back shoving and kicking a woman outside his Cleveland home.
"That goes back to the ongoing investigation with Tyreek and really our ability to get any information," Hunt said Saturday in explaining the difference between the two situations. "That audio was really among the first information we had received on the investigation."
The Chiefs drafted Hill in 2016 knowing he had pleaded guilty in Oklahoma to punching and choking his girlfriend, who was then pregnant. Team officials said after a backlash from fans that they had done their due diligence on Hill and that they wouldn't draft someone they thought would commit more violent acts.
