Tireek Hill didn’t join the Jets because of state taxes?

Pro Bowl six-time wide receiver Tireek Hill was regularly associated with the New York Jets this past winter but ended up joining the Miami Dolphins through a purchase from the Kansas City Chiefs in March.

Hill explains why he’s not with Gang Green this fall.

As shared by Barry Jackson by the Miami Herald and Scott Polacek of Bleacher Report, Hill spoke to reporters Monday about Sunday’s upcoming game between the Dolphins 3-1 and 2-2 Jets being held at MetLife Stadium. He mentioned financial reasons why he calls Florida home rather than New Jersey or New York.

“It was very close to happening,” Hill said of the possibility of being traded to the Jet. “Just state taxes, man. I had to make a mature decision.”

As part of the trade, Hill and the Dolphins agreed four-year, $120 million extension, reportedly including $72.2 million in security. Aside from cash, few could argue that the 28-year-old made the wrong call as it involved field issues.

Every ESPN Statistically, Hill started the NFL lead Monday with 477 yards received, and he shares the league lead with Buffalo Bills’ Stefon Diggs for receptions with 31. Hill also counted two touches. ball in his first four games with Miami.

Hill and the Dolphins will do not have starting midfielder Tua Tagovailoa at least in the Week 5 competition at the Jets after Tagovailoa was a pair of scary injuries in the previous two games. Backup Teddy Bridgewater will start in place of Tagovailoa against New York.
