Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and wide receiver Tyreek Hill established a historic bond in their five-year run, connecting for over 6,000 yards, scoring 50 touchdowns and winning a Super Bowl together in 2019. But after Hill was traded to Miami this offseason, he shared some critical comments about his former offense, to which Mahomes responded on Thursday.

"I'm surprised a little just because I feel like we love Tyreek here," Mahomes told reporters. "We've always loved him. We still love him."

Mahomes, who said the pair connected last month at Formula One in Miami, hypothesized that the comments "had something to do with trying to get his podcast some stuff and get it rolling."

In the podcast, Hill opined that his new quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is more accurate than 2018 MVP Mahomes. Hill, who caught over 400 passes from Mahomes over their five years, also added that he was underutilized in the Chiefs' offense.

"I know he wanted to get the ball as much as possible to help us win. It wasn't a selfish thing," Mahomes said Thursday. "We were winning football games, especially at the end of the season, so I don't think he really brought that to our attention."
