Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes said Thursday that he was "surprised a little" when former teammate Tyreek Hill aired his frustrations about his time in Kansas City.

Hill said the Chiefs failed to utilize him enough and weren't willing to negotiate near the $25 million-$26 million annual figure that he was looking for in an extension. The Miami Dolphins wide receiver made the comments on the first episode of his new podcast, "It Needed To Be Said," which was released last Friday.

"We loved Tyreek here, we've always loved him, we still love him," said Mahomes.

He added: "I'm sure it had something to do with trying to get his podcast some stuff and get it rolling. But definitely, I still love Tyreek, he's a one-of-a-kind player. But as you know in coach (Andy) Reid's offense, it takes the whole team. ... It's an offense that's more than one player, and that includes myself."
