In what seemed like an open and shut case and possibly a further dismantling of Kansas City's offense, Tyreek Hill caught fire when audio leaks connected him to child abuse allegations. It was just another dark cloud to follow a team that had lost their running back in Kareem Hunt after disturbing video showed him violently attacking a woman at a hotel. Today, Tyreek Hill stands cleared of the allegations with the following statement:
"The last few months have been very difficult for me, especially as a father. The false allegations originally reported in March were highly publicized and involved the care of my son. I am grateful for so many things and grateful for so many people who have supported me during this challenging time. I fully respect and accept the NFL's decision."
Doug Gottlieb (in the audio above) talks about how Tyreek Hill's checkered past may have made us all jump to conclusions about the star wide receiver to the point where we were ready for blood when we heard the allegations as well as the audiotape. Today it seems we may have taken the audio out of context. As Hill is free to resume NFL activities, we must assume the innocence of Hill. It'd be far too risky of the NFL to look the other way in this situation.
