Tyreek Hill was close to being traded to the Jets

Miami Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill says Jets Trade was very close to happening. He blames “State Taxes” for the trade not happening.

Tyreek Hill will face the New York Jets with his new team the Miami Dolphins for the first time on Sunday. He revealed that he may have been on the other sideline if it wasn’t for the lack of state taxes in Florida.

Hill told reporters, “It was very close to happening.” He went on to say, “Just those state taxes man. I had to make a grown-up decision.” The state taxes have made the difference, but Miami seems to be a better fit for Hill from a football perspective as well.

The Dolphins are off to a 3-1 start with victories over presumed AFC contenders in the Buffalo Bills and Baltimore Ravens.

Hill and fellow WR Jaylen Waddle have been a unstoppable duo with a combined 52 catches for 858 and five touchdowns through the first four games.

New York comes into the matchup with a 2-2 record, but its two victories came in a dramatic comeback against the Cleveland Browns that required a late onside kick recovery and another comeback against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
