Source (Yahoo Sports) – His three-year extension worth $54 million, a source told Yahoo Sports on Friday.Hill’s extension has a unique structure, the source said, and includes $35.2 million guaranteed and a $5.8 million signing bonus. The Chiefs had been interested in extending Hill, 25, since a child-abuse investigation on the wideout and his then-fiancée closed with the NFL deciding not to punish Hill.
Hill, a three-time All-Pro, is coming off a third season in which he notched career highs in catches (87), yards (1,479) and touchdowns (12). He was entering the fourth and final year of his rookie deal after the Chiefs selected him amid controversy as a fifth-round pick in 2016.
