In recent news, Tyreek Hill got into some hot water with leaked audio of Hill telling his fiancee, "you need to be terrified of me, too, bitch." The leaked audio reopened a child abuse investigation involving Hill and his three-year-old son, where his son had reportedly broken his arm at the hands of Hill. The investigation is just a microcosm of the legal troubles some Chiefs players have faced. Former Chiefs running back was involved in an altercation with a woman in Cleveland, leading to his eventual release. Recently acquired defensive end Frank Clark was dismissed from the Michigan Wolverines due to a domestic abuse arrest. In short, the Chiefs seem to have some character issues on their team.
Hill will likely face severe discipline from the league. After all, this is a league that has seen some heinous domestic violence issues go down (see Ray Rice). But this will put a dent in the Chiefs offensively. Patrick Mahomes will still have Travis Kelce to go to, but he'll miss the speedy Hill and his breakaway speed. It's unfortunate because the Chiefs had an offensive trio that rivaled what the 90's Dallas Cowboys had. Mahomes, Hill, and Hunt were a lethal combo that Kansas City could use to pile on the points. Now, Hunt has been cut (he's now a Cleveland Brown) and Hill will likely miss playing time.
People talk about the "Madden Curse" and the numerous victims it has claimed. Ranging from Michael Vick to Peyton Hillis, this dogma has stymied many cover athletes for the Madden franchise. Their newest poster boy, Mahomes, might've been a victim of this without even doing anything immoral. The potential loss of one of his most valuable offensive weapons will put a damper on the Chiefs offensively. Will the Chiefs survive? Kansas City fans are hoping so.
