Hill’s loyalties might have shifted since leaving KC, however Mahomes stays true in his evaluation of Hill. Rather than making his personal participant comparisons, Mahomes had nothing however good issues to say about Hill’s abilities, labeling him a “one-of-a-kind player.”

Mahomes additionally reminded everybody that none of what Hill and Mahomes completed throughout their time collectively would have been potential with head coach Andy Reid on the helm.
“But as you know, in Coach Reid’s offsense, it takes the whole team,” Mahomes continued. “This offense was rolling before I got here, this offense was rolling when I was a young Cowboys fan watching the Eagles beat up on the Cowboys. It’s an offense that includes more than one player, and that includes myself.”
Joking round on the podium, Mahomes appeared to take Hill’s comments in stride — however they nonetheless caught him a bit off-guard.
