As the old saying goes, when your talent outweighs your baggage, you'll always have a job in the NFL. Never is that more apparent than in the case of Tyreek Hill.

Despite a messy offseason that saw Hill almost rung up on alleged child abuse charges, the Kansas City Chiefs agreed to a 3-year, $54 million dollar contract extension that makes him one of the highest paid wide receivers in the NFL.

For as troubled as he is, Hill is as immensely talented as they come. In his rookie year, he made the Pro Bowl and an All-Pro team as a returner, and he has made a Pro Bowl in each of his three seasons in the NFL.

In his first year with Patrick Mahomes calling the shots, the speed demon Hill recorded 87 catches for 1,479 yards and 12 touchdowns while adding 151 yards and a touchdown as a runner and a punt return touchdown.

Hill's off-field issues won't go away now that he's been paid, but he is still the best deep threat in the league, and now the Chiefs have him and the best deep ball thrower in the league in Mahomes in town for the foreseeable future. Credit to GM Brett Veach for getting this deal done.
