There’s been some ill will and even death threats since Tyreek Hill‘s contract demands led the Chiefs to trade him to the Dolphins, but one former teammate is standing up for Hill’s right to seek greener pastures.

Chiefs guard Trey Smith said on 104.5 The Zone in Nashville that the business of football dictates that players need to do what’s best for themselves, because the coaches and front office executives will always do what’s best for the team.

“Yeah, the coaches are gonna do what they think is best for the organization and for the team. And I can’t blame Tyreek; he’s getting paid,” Smith said.
