Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill will not be suspended any length of time by the NFL after the league concluded their investigation into the embattled star, who was accused of breaking his son's arm and was caught on tape threatening his fiancee, Crystal Espinal.

Part of the reason that Hill eluded any formal discipline could have been based on what his own legal team provided to the NFL.

According to Yahoo! Sports' Terez Paylor, Hill and his lawyers met with league officials for eight hours on June 26, giving them evidence that would eventually exonerate him.

That evidence included text messages that back up assertions that Hill made in a four-page letter to the NFL in early May.

After it was announced he could get back on the field without a suspension, Hill released a statement on Twitter, thanking the Chiefs organization and all those who helped through what he called a "challenging time."

What exactly Hill showed to league officials and how it effected his ruling may never come to light, but it apparently was enough to force the NFL to wash their hands of the whole affair and declare this case shut.
