After shaky start, Chiefs’ Hill matures into All-Pro star

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Tyreek Hill nearly threw away his career. Twice. Yet he has grown up considerably since his days at Oklahoma State and those early years with the Chiefs, becoming not only one of the most popular players in Kansas City but also one of the best wide receivers in the NFL. He had nine catches for 105 yards in helping the Chiefs rally past the 49ers in the Super Bowl last season. And after a first-round bye this season Hill followed up with eight catches for 110 yards in their divisional round against Cleveland and nine catches for a franchise record 172 yards in the AFC championship victory over Buffalo.
