Tyreek Hill remains stuck in the nightmarish trappings of continuing to play professional football.

As the Kansas City Chiefs announced on Twitter on Friday, they have left their star wide receiver with no choice but to endure their violent on-field relationship with a three-year, $54 million extension. The deal ensures that the Chiefs will continue to victimize Hill with snaps, targets, and touchdowns, in addition to the weekly fear of being tackled that has become commonplace for him.

Hill’s wife and their young son, meanwhile, stand by helplessly as he struggles to find a path out of the NFL. As is often the case with troubled football relationships, law enforcement and the league lack sufficient evidence against the Chiefs to prove their alleged crimes took place. It’s tough to build a case when you only have 47 games of NFL footage to analyze.

The troubling news will no doubt disturb Chiefs fans as their long, harrowing quest for justice continues. Unfortunately, it may take a Super Bowl championship or two for the NFL to understand the depth of the Chiefs’ menacing behavior.
