Tyreek Hill stepped in front of the podium on Sunday to speak with media at Kansas City Chiefs training camp, and he addressed his tumultuous offseason.

Hill thanked the Chiefs organization and Roger Goodell, vowing to keep growing as a person, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network shared. He then said, “I’m back. The Cheetah is back, man.”

Following his initial statement, Hill said he would not go into detail about the ongoing situation with his former fiancée, who recently went to court over paternity claims regarding their twin boys.

However, he did say he owns up to his “bad language” on the audiotape that was widely circulated: “I’m going to own up to that,” he said, saying it was “very disrespectful.”


Hill also said that he never even knew the secret audio recording that Crystal Espinal had even existed until it came out publicly on the news.

The NFL has cleared Hill to resume all activities with the Chiefs, and there is no police investigation ongoing after he was cleared by the district attorney of any wrongdoing concerning his 3-year-old son.
