Tyreek doesn’t think MVP will ever go to WR: ‘I’d be happier if Tua won’


Tyreek Hill is having one of the greatest seasons ever for a wide receiver, but the Miami Dolphins star still doesn’t think he’ll be in contention for NFL MVP at the end of the year.

“There’s been numerous times, before I even started playing football, that guys have been making plays, having great seasons (without being named MVP),” he said, according to David Furones of the Sun Sentinel. “It’s a quarterback award, we all know that.”

A wide receiver has never claimed football’s most prestigious individual award. Quarterbacks have been named MVP for the last 10 seasons, with former Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson the last non-QB to take home the honor in 2012.

 

Hill hopes Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa can win it this season.

“I’d be happier if Tua won,” Hill said.

Tagovailoa and Hill form one of the NFL’s most efficient quarterback-receiver duos this season. The signal-caller has completed 70.1% of his pass attempts for 3,457 yards and 24 touchdowns – the second-most in the league – against 10 interceptions, good for a 106 passer rating.

Meanwhile, Hill has caught 93 passes for a league-high 1,481 yards and 12 touchdowns. The seven-time Pro Bowler is on pace to shatter Calvin Johnson’s single-season record of 1,964 yards and become the first player ever to reach the 2,000-yard receiving mark in a single campaign.

“I feel like I’ve gotten everything I wanted,” Hill said. “I get a chance to play a game that I love. … Obviously, winning the award would be icing on the cake, but God has blessed me.”
