TYREEK HILL

Salary: $2,042,500, 576th in the NFL
Comparable NBA salary: Jarrett Allen’s $2,034,120, 334th in the NBA

Hill is a three-time Pro Bowler who has been one of the NFL’s most productive wide receivers. He ranked first in the NFL in yards per touch (15.0), fourth in all-purpose yards (1,843), fourth in receiving yards (1,479), fourth in receiving touchdowns (12), fourth in yards per reception (17.0), fourth in receiving yards per game (92.4) and fifth in total touchdowns (14). He’s about enter the final season of his rookie contract and he’s only making $2,042,500 because he was a fifth-round pick. Allen is in the midst of a breakout sophomore campaign for the Brooklyn Nets and he’s now underpaid due to his draft slot (No. 22) as well. There was a report that the Kansas City Chiefs seemed poised to offer Hill “a record-setting deal,” according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. However, it remains to be seen what will happen next since police are now investigating a child battery incident that occurred at Hill’s home. While Hill isn’t in the police report, his fiancée is mentioned and their 3-year-old son reportedly broke his arm.
