Tyreek Hill Under Investigation For Allegedly Breaking Son's Arm

Mar 15, 2019 5:26 PM

Tyreek Hill is under investigation for a battery incident in which a juvenile is listed as the victim.

Hill’s fiancee, Crystal Espinal, is listed under “others involved.”

“The club is aware of the investigation involving Tyreek Hill,” the Chiefs said in a statement to The Star. “We’re in the process of gathering information and have been in contact with the league and local authorities. We’ll have no further comment at this time.”

The source said that the incident was against the couple’s son, resulting in a broken arm.

Hill has a history of domestic violence. He reportedly punched and choked Espinal, who was then eight weeks pregnant with their son, on Dec. 11, 2014. He was arrested and dismissed from the Oklahoma State football team. Hill pleaded guilty to domestic assault and battery by strangulation in August 2015. He received three years probation. The Chiefs selected Hill in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

Chiefs Release Eric Berry

Mar 13, 2019 6:20 PM

The Kansas City Chiefs have released Eric Berry.

"I'd like to thank Eric for his contributions to our team and the Kansas City community over the last nine years," coach Andy Reid said Wednesday in a statement from the Chiefs. "Seeing his passion and watching his love for the game has been truly remarkable. He's a special person, and we wish him the best as his career moves forward."

The move comes following Kansas City's agreement with Tyrann Mathieu on a three-year, $42 million contract.

Berry was voted first-team All-Pro three times.

Berry's 2014 season was cut short by a lymphoma diagnosis, but he returned in time for the start of the next season

The 49ers entered the offseason looking for a premium edge rusher.

Chiefs Sign Carlos Hyde To One-Year, $2.8M Deal

Mar 10, 2019 8:16 AM

The Kansas City Chiefs have signed Carlos Hyde to a one-year, $2.8 million contract.

Hyde was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Friday.

Damien Williams and Darrel Williams became Kansas City's primary running backs upon the release of Kareem Hunt.

“We certainly like a bigger back,” Chiefs general manager Brett Veach said during last week’s scouting combine. “I certainly have a thing for 220-pound backs that can run and catch and block.”

Hyde signed a $15 million, three-year deal with the Browns last season, but he appeared in just six games before a midseason trade to Jacksonville.

Chiefs To Franchise Dee Ford, Listen To Trade Offers

Mar 2, 2019 5:24 PM

The Kansas City Chiefs have placed the franchise tag on Dee Ford, but are willing to listen to trade offers on him.

The Chiefs intend to switch their base defensive scheme to a 4-3 under new coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, which likely would mean a move to defensive end for Ford, who played that position in college before moving to linebacker for Kansas City.

Ford's franchise tag will be worth approximately $15.8 million. Ford made about $8.7 million last season after the Chiefs exercised the fifth-year option of the contract he signed as a rookie in 2014.
