It’s sickening what the NFL will tolerate if you can blaze a 40-yard dash and score touchdowns.
“When you get the facts, then you make a decision about how it fits into our personal conduct policy. You don’t make a decision without having those facts.”
Those words were uttered by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell when responding to a recorded conversation where Kansas City Chiefs star receiver Tyreek Hill is talking with his fiancée, Crystal Espinal. In the audio recording, Espinal accuses Hill of abusing their 3-year-old son.
On Wednesday, the Johnson County District Attorney said charges would not be filed after police were called to Hill’s home twice last month and investigators determined the child had been injured. The D.A. said he believed a crime had occurred but that the evidence didn’t clearly establish who committed it.
But today, the D.A.’s office has reopened its criminal case on Hill, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said at a news conference.
