KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) Chiefs rookie Tyreek Hill says that fans have every right to be mad at him after his domestic abuse case. But he insists he has changed and is trying to make the most of a second chance.
The Chiefs drafted the speedy return man in the fifth round, despite Hill pleading guilty last August to abusing and strangling his pregnant girlfriend. The draft choice was sharply criticized by many fans on social media, with some saying they would boycott Chiefs games.
Hill joined other rookies in Kansas City on Saturday for the start of a three-day minicamp.
Hill said he met with Chiefs owner Clark Hunt, general manager John Dorsey and coach Andy Reid, and that they all told him to work hard and wished him luck.
