Dolphins Star Wide Receiver Tyreke Hill expects his second season in Miami to be special.
During a recent episode of the It Should Have Been Said podcast, Hill made a couple of bold predictions. “Next year I’ll hit 2,000 yards,” Hill said, referring to the first high goal.
He then promised to hold the Super Bowl championship in Miami. dolphins win “another Super Bowl”. The last time the Dolphins franchise won the Super Bowl was in 1973.
“Two thousand yards was on my wish list before I left this league. You all think that the Cheetah will leave without doing what he promised himself that he was going to do as [kid]? Two thousand yards and another Super Bowl. We get it. Believe it,” Hill said.
former Detroit Lions Star Calvin Johnson finished the 2012 season with 1,964 receiving yards, which remains a single-season record. Hill finished the 2022 season with 1,710 yards.
The Minnesota Vikings star is well ahead of Justin Jefferson on 1,809 receiving yards. NFL last season.
This isn’t the first time Hill has shared his desire to have best statistical season for an NFL wide receiver in history.
Hill said last month that 17 regular-season games would get him to 2,000 yards. The scheduled NFL regular season has been increased from 16 games to 17 games for each team in 2021.
“Oh yes, of course,” Hill said on June 8 when asked if the 2,000 yard mark was realistic. “I think the added game gives me a big advantage, so yeah.”
Hill had a prolific first half of 2022, gaining 1,104 receiving yards in the first nine games of the year. If he had continued to work at the same pace over the last eight games, he would probably have passed the 2,000 yard mark.
But the Dolphins suffered multiple injuries at quarterback, which affected Hill’s scoring.
This offseason, the Dolphins bolstered their receivers by signing Braxton Berrios and Chosen Anderson.
Aside from Hill’s impressive 2022 campaign, Jaylen Waddle had a solid season as a sophomore. The former Alabama standout finished the season with a career-best 1,356 yards.
