In the first episode of his podcast, “‘It Needed To Be Said’ with Tyreek Hill”, the new Dolphins star receiver and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, explained that the Kansas City Chiefs’ unwillingness to pay what they believed Hill was worth, combined with a 2021 where they believe he was underutilized, were prime reasons why he ended up in Miami in March.

The podcast, released on Thursday, started its Chiefs discussion by talking about the contract-value disagreement Rosenhaus had with the team who has won the AFC twice in the past three seasons and the Super Bowl once in that span .

“We were really far apart in the numbers,” Rosenhaus said. “We felt strongly that Tyreek was the best receiver in football and deserved to get paid that way. They were very complimentary of Tyreek, but they were not prepared to make him the highest-paid receiver in football.”

Hill, who did have a career-best 9.4 targets per game in 2021 (159 in 17 games), pointed at the second game of the season in Baltimore, a 36-35 Chiefs loss, as a point of contention regarding his usage.

“Baltimore Ravens. I had three catches for 14 yards. Crazy, right? … Week 1, I went for 189? And we won the game? Come on, man,” Hill said. “I just don’t get it. If teams are gonna give us favorable one-on-one matches against their best corner, I don’t see why teams don’t utilize their best receiver. And that’s where probably like me and the Chiefs fell apart right there.”

In an effort to allay concerns regarding him having a reduced impact on games in Miami with Tua Tagovailoa, a quarterback considered by most as far inferior to Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, Hill brought up a former Dolphins passer: “I just want people to understand that I went for 150 with Matt Moore as my quarterback. I love you, Matt Moore! Versus the Minnesota Vikings. If you don’t remember that game, 150 and one touchdown with Matt Moore as my quarterback. And Tua T. is 10 Matt Moores!”

When asked to compare Tagovailoa and Mahomes, Hill said, “Obviously, I’m going to go with 1-5 [Mahomes] as the strongest arm. As far as accuracy-wise, I’m going to go with Tua all day.”

Hill also said that the Chiefs were resistant to him missing time to travel to see his grandfather in Georgia during a battle with prostate cancer.

On March 23, the Chiefs traded Hill to the Dolphins in exchange for five draft picks (the 29th, 50th and 121st selections in 2022 and a fourth-rounder and sixth-rounder in the 2023 draft).

The Dolphins then signed Hill to a four-year extension with a whopping $52.535 million fully guaranteed at signing, with another $19.665 million fully guaranteed by March.

RHOA's Drew Sidora Talks Ralph's Assistant, If He's Cheated, and LeBron James, Plus Reacts to Fans Saying Marriage Won't Last and Sheree's Twitter Diss

Drew Sidora recently appeared on Watch What Happens Live and The Real Housewives of Atlanta star answered a number of questions pertaining to her marriage to husband Ralph Pittman, Jr.S

While confirming the current status of Ralph’s relationship with his assistant, who offered him a massage before seemingly bashing Drew on Instagram, Drew revealed if she believes her husband has cheated, addressed LeBron James rumors, and more.

“I have not heard her name. I have not seen her [and] ties have been cut,” Drew confirmed of Ralph’s ex-assistant on the June 5 episode of WWHL, admitting that she does believe the woman threw shade at her on Instagram.

“It seemed very specific and I didn’t like it,” Drew said.

Although Ralph has certainly raised questions over the years in terms of his faithfulness to Drew, Drew said that she does not believe he’s cheated on her.

“In my heart, I feel like he’s done some questionable things. But I feel deep down inside he has been faithful. I really do,” she stated. “People know who he is now. I need all of y’all to keep your eyes out. I feel like I’m okay now because Instagram, Twitter… He can’t move around too much.”

During Sunday’s episode of RHOA, Kenya Moore asked her castmates about famous people they’ve been with. And, while may believed Drew hinted that LeBron had bought her a drink, she said on WWHL that the speculation began with Kenya.

“That was Kenya. It was a fun game that we were playing and I’ll just say, I’m a married woman now so we’re not even going to go there,” Drew stated, failing to confirm or deny that LeBron was the mystery NBA player she had referred to.

Also speaking of Kenya, Drew said she believed Sheree Whitfield was the “more iconic” of the two.

“I would definitely give it to Sheree. Season 1, she started this. I’ve gotta give respect where respect’s due,” Drew shared, despite their recent feuding.

When it was time for the poll segment of the show, the audience agreed that Ralph was gaslighting Drew, which Drew said made her feel “seen.”

“It is [gaslighting] but he’s so many other things. He’s very layered. But he’s an a—hole too,” she admitted. “And I love my a—hole. He’s my a—hole.”

Then, after 90% of the audience voted that she and Ralph won’t last, Drew stood up for her relationship.

“Oh my gosh! We’re going to prove them wrong. Love stands at the end of the day. I’m manifesting that,” she declared.

Also on WWHL, host Andy Cohen revealed that Sheree had dissed Drew amid the latest RHOA episode.

“You didn’t even [work out] so make it make sense,” Sheree tweeted.

In response, Drew explained, “I’ve been working out but I had injuries. I had different things. As a woman, I’ve had three kids…. different things that happen to your body. And that’s what happened.”

“I’m a real woman that went through health struggles and I’m open about it,” she added.

With one day remaining in the Chicago Bears’ voluntary offseason program, there’s little question new coach Matt Eberflus has gotten his “HITS” principle across to players.

The hustle — or at least the intensity — in some previous OTAs led to the NFL docking the organization a planned day on the field Tuesday. The Bears were back at it Wednesday at the Walter Payton Center with fewer collisions and less contact than they’ve had in these sessions, which are without full pads.

Safety Jaquan Brisker collided with wide receiver Velus Jones on a play in the flat for a pass breakup, with both players going to the ground, but that was about the only notable contact that teams are supposed to avoid in rules collectively bargained for the purpose of player safety.

The defense was the big winner on the day. Cornerback Jaylon Johnson also had a nice pass breakup (without a collision), and safety DeAndre Houston-Carson intercepted quarterback Justin Fields twice. Eberflus noted that the offense was victorious in Monday’s session — held without media — and said he counted 11 chunk pass plays.

Eberflus said neither he nor the organization was fined by the league. One issue the Bears face: The NFLPA will be on the lookout for potential repeat violations.

The players association had a representative at an OTA in May, when sessions were too physical. The Bears were warned, and when video of subsequent OTAs showed similar issues, the NFL forced them to cancel Tuesday’s session.

Future penalties could be more severe — the team could lose minicamp dates. In some instances draft picks have been stripped.

“Hustle can be there and it is, and you can see that,” Eberflus said. “You guys were at practice. They run on offense. They run on defense. Man, we run.

“But the intensity part. The focus part of intensity can be there but not the physical part until we get the pads. Once we get the pads on in training camp, that’s when we’re going to focus on how we play the intensity piece. That cannot be done this time of year.

“We’re excited where we are with that. There’s guys, they’re flying around, they’re really moving to the ball. It looks fast to me.”

Third-year tight end Cole Kmet said a significantly younger roster with a lot of new faces eager to impress a new front office and coaching staff has created more vigorous sessions at a time when more veteran and established programs don’t have the foot on the gas pedal.

“We’re going 100% and you’re being asked to go 100% and you want to show out for a new staff,” Kmet said. “You have young guys and guys like me that want to stick around here and be around here. … And I think it’s a balance.

“As players … we’ve got to learn as a group how to practice correctly and take care of each other and keep guys off the ground. And practice in a way that’s beneficial for everybody, where we’re able to go 100% full effort, which you can do in these things, but still keep everybody safe and everybody off the ground.

“I think since Day 1 … it’s just been night and day with how we’ve been practicing.”

Left guard Cody Whitehair said it’s difficult to go full speed as a lineman in practice when not wearing pads.

“But this team is young and we need that intense practice and expectation from the group,” he said. “We do have a lot of young guys and the expectations are high, so you’ve got to expect an intense practice. I feel like the guys have really worked hard and have gotten a lot out of it.”

Despite the penalty, the players have a pretty good understanding of what coaches will expect at training camp, when legitimate football evaluation begins.

“When we get pads on, it’s going to be full go,” said Kmet, who used his unplanned day off Tuesday to play golf. “We’re going to be going at it, and it’s going to be good for everybody. We’re building up to that right now.

“We’re getting this break here soon. It’s going to be on everybody to take care of their bodies during this time and make sure they’re staying in shape and ready to roll when Day 1 comes around.”

RHOC's Dr. Jen Armstrong and Husband Ryne Sell $5.8 Million Home as Insider Claims They're "Trying to Work" on Marriage Despite Divorce

Dr. Jen Armstrong and estranged husband Ryne Holliday have one less thing to worry about as their eight-year marriage reaches its potential end.

As the Real Housewives of Orange County couple continues to spend time together amid their divorce, Jen and Ryan have unloaded their 5-bedroom, 3-bathroom Newport home, which they put on the market earlier this year for $5.9 million.

According to real estate records obtained by Radar Online, the 3,047-square-foot property, which boasts “180-degree unobstructed views of Catalina and San Clemente Island,” sold for $5.8 million just weeks after being listed.

The report revealed that Jen and Ryne bought the home in 2020 for $3 million, which means they made $2.8 million on the sale.

While Jen just recently filed for divorce, an insider told Page Six on Monday that she and Ryne are trying to stay together.

“It has been a rough few months, but they are really trying to work on their marriage,” the insider said, noting that Jen and Ryne reunited for a family beach day with their 10-year-old twins Vera and Vince, and 9-year-old son Robert, in Laguna Beach on Sunday.

In photos obtained by the outlet, Jen and Ryne were seen walking with their arms around one another.

As RHOC fans may have heard, Jen filed for a legal separation from Ryne, whom she married in November 2013, in May. And, weeks later, she changed her request to divorce as she asked for legal and physical custody of their children, with Ryan getting visitation, and requested Ryne be kept from receiving spousal support.

Following the filing, which came on the heels of a family outing to Disneyland, an insider explained Jen’s decision.

“There was no specific catalyst for the filing. After their first trial separation in September [2021], Jen and Ryne were still in limbo, and Jen felt like she needed to take this step to improve their family dynamic,” the insider said.

“The issues they’ve been having are the same issues that played out on the show. But all is amicable, and they are committed to keeping their kids stable and happy,” the source added.

The Real Housewives of Orange County was renewed for a 17th season by Bravo last month but Jen’s return remains unconfirmed.

Tron DAO Reserve, which manages algorithmic stablecoin USDD, said on Saturday that it had bought $50 million worth of Bitcoin (BTC) and Tron (TRX).

The purchase was announced in a tweet saying it was meant to “safeguard the overall blockchain industry and crypto market.”

Following the collapse of Terra’s algorithmic stablecoin in May, Tron earlier this month said it would significantly increase the amount of capital backing USDD, The Block reported at the time.

A reserve comprised of cryptocurrencies and other stablecoins was amassed to overcollateralize USDD and was guaranteed to be maintained at a minimum of 130% of the total amount of USDD in issuance.

Tron said that it would begin publishing real-time updates on the collateral ratio on the Tron DAO Reserve website from June 5. The ratio today was almost 193%.

Tron’s USDD went live on the blockchain on May 5.
