Miami Dolphins' standout Tyreek Hill is making headlines yet again, but this time it's not for his electrifying plays on the field. The NFL star recently announced his decision to cover the fines incurred by a photographer named Kevin Fitzgibbons, who was penalized by the league for participating in Hill's touchdown celebration during a Dolphins' home game earlier this season.
Fitzgibbons, who is part of the NFL's photography team covering Dolphins' games, joined in Hill's celebratory moment by accepting his camera after the wide receiver's touchdown. Unfortunately, the enthusiastic gesture led to a fine for Fitzgibbons due to sideline protocol violations.
In an interview with ESPN, Hill expressed his commitment to supporting Fitzgibbons, saying, "I told him I was going to cover his salary, whatever the NFL was going to pay him or whatever. I told him I was going to make sure that I do what's right and take care of you, make sure you're not out of a job.
That's my guy." Hill's benevolent gesture is in keeping with his reputation as one of the NFL's most generous players, and it's certainly well within his financial means.
Tyreek Hill's Impressive Wealth
As of 2023, Tyreek Hill's net worth stands at a staggering $40 million, cementing his status as the highest-paid wide receiver in the league.
His financial success is primarily attributed to the lucrative four-year, $120 million deal he signed upon being traded to the Miami Dolphins in 2022. Celebrity Net Worth reveals that Hill has amassed this wealth through a combination of professional contracts and lucrative endorsement deals.
Hill's journey to NFL stardom wasn't without its challenges. Originally projected to go undrafted due to off-field concerns, he defied the odds by being selected 165th overall by the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2016 NFL Draft.
He quickly became an integral part of the team and saw his salary rise significantly, culminating in a $54 million contract extension in 2019. During his time with the Chiefs, Hill earned three First Team All-Pro selections and made six consecutive Pro Bowl appearances since his rookie year.
He played a pivotal role in the Chiefs' victory in the 2020 Super Bowl, solidifying his status as a valuable asset. In March of the following year, Hill was traded to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for multiple draft picks, highlighting the high regard in which he is held in the NFL.
Beyond his accomplishments on the football field, Hill is also diligently building his wealth by investing in various businesses. In addition to endorsing prominent brands like Adidas, he became an investor in Grip Boost Inc.
in 2020, a company specializing in football gloves and grip gel. Hill also co-owns the apparel brand Soul Runner, which offers a range of casual and athletic wear for men. Off the field, Hill is an automobile enthusiast, boasting an impressive collection of cars that includes a Mercedes-Benz G350, two Corvettes, a Galaxy, an Escalade, and a Stinger.
His luxurious Florida property features amenities such as a "Cheetah Cave," a basketball court, beach volleyball fields, a pool, jacuzzi, and more, making it one of the most opulent homes among NFL players.
