If a football fan had to name their top three wide receivers in the last 10 years, Tyreek Hill would undoubtedly be one of them, perhaps topping some of the lists. However, ‘the Cheetah’s run has to come to an end at some point, and he wants that to happen at the Miami Dolphins.

During a recent appearance on ‘Around the Bar Podcast‘, Hill addressed his desire to remain with the Dolphins and retire wearing the famous aqua colors. Even though he was born and spent his early years in Georgia, the 30-year-old has grown to love Miami and Florida since his move from the Chiefs in 2021.

Man, I love Miami. My wife [Keeta Vaccaro] loves it, the kids love it, my mom loves it, and it's just a beautiful city to live here, man. You know, there's so much stuff to do.
Tyreek Hill said

After being selected in the fifth round of the 2016 draft, Tyreek Hill spent six seasons in Kansas City. He appeared in back-to-back Super Bowls, winning them in 2019. However, following a failed contract negotiation, the 30-year-old decided to step away in 2021.

The Miami Dolphins gave him a four-year, $120 million extension that made him the highest-paid receiver in the league. Hill later revealed that he had several other options, including the San Francisco 49ers, but he did not want to pay extra Californian taxes.

One of the reasons he chose the Dolphins was because the state of Florida doesn’t have that issue. On top of that, they had just hired former 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel as their head coach and drafted Alabama prospect Tua Tagovailoa as quarterback a year earlier.

I love the team that I play on; I love the guys in the locker room, love the head coach [Mike McDaniel], love the GM [Chris Grier].
Tyreek Hill added

Things looked up for the Dolphins as they qualified for the playoffs for the first time in five seasons. Hill was their top receiver, and on both occasions, he crossed more than 1700 yards. He believes that this Dolphins side can push for the Super Bowl and then retire to Miami, but he knows anything is possible in the NFL.

I would like to retire in Miami, but we all know how the NFL is, how jobs go, and how people get promotions over here.
Tyreek Hill said

Hill’s contract is up after the 2024 season. They must extend his stay if the Dolphins want to remain competitive and challenge the Chiefs, Ravens, and Bengals in the AFC. However, they will have to either match or provide a better salary than what AJ Brown is earning in Philadelphia.
