The Kansas City Chiefs traded star wide receiver Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins earlier in the offseason, creating significant change within the team's offense. And now, the 28-year-old is commenting on his views towards the Chiefs.

Hill produced another episode of his podcast, "It Needed To Be Said," where the superstar pass-catcher addressed how he's feeling regarding his former team.

"Nothing But Love"

The creation of Hill's podcast in and of itself raised questions as to whether a message was being sent to someone within Kansas City. However, when asked directly about it by his co-host, the 28-year-old denied sending any message.

"No," said Hill. "See, look, my mom always told me, 'Don't have no grudges. Don't have no bad blood with anybody.' I got all love for everybody in the building from top to bottom. It don't matter how they feel against me," he continued.

"I know how I feel about them and it's all love from the Cheetah. From Clark Hunt to Brett Veach to Andy Reid to the whole roster, I've got nothing but love."

Love Isn't Everywhere

Unfortunately, Hill's love for those within the Chiefs organization isn't seen everywhere else. The superstar wide receiver mentioned on his podcast that he had received death threats over recent comments comparing Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Dolphins signal-caller Tua Tagovailoa.

The comments in question referred to each quarterback's throwing accuracy. Hill said he believed his new quarterback was a more accurate passer.

On every social media account I own, I got death threats on," Hill said on his podcast. "I just feel like a lot of people overreacted for no reason. They really didn't see what I said. A lot of people are just acting off emotion," he continued.

"Top Two, And He's Not Two"

The 28-year-old cleared up the air a bit on this episode of his podcast regarding his comments about Mahomes.

"We all know Patrick Mahomes is great, we know that," Hill said. "But, right now, I'm going into a new season with a new quarterback who's trying to head in the same direction as Patrick and do great things and lead this team to a Super Bowl championship – who is also great, in my opinion. He just doesn't have the accolades yet."

"[Mahomes is] arguably one of the best quarterbacks in the league," Hill said. "Top two, and he's not two."

What's Best For Him

Hill mentioned that at the end of the day, the trade was in the best interest of him and his family. And while he is fine with trash talk or criticism, he did have one request.

"If anyone want to give me heat for doing what's best for me and my family, go ahead and give me heat, baby," Hill said. "You can all talk trash to me all day, yada, yada, death threat to Mr. Cheetah. Whatever you want to say to Mr. Cheetah, you can do that, but please man, keep my family off-limits. That's all I ask."
