Dolphins wideout Tyreek Hill has said he must be better following his incident with another man at a Miami Beach marina.
Hill reached a settlement with the man in question, announced a day prior to the Dolphins’ first training camp practice.
According to a Miami-Dade Police Report viewed by the South Florida Sun Sentinel, the league’s highest-paid receiver told an associate to put forth $200 to the employee he allegedly struck on the ‘back of his head and neck’ in June.
‘I just can’t make bonehead mistakes like that,’ Hill said of the matter Wednesday.
A joint statement from attorneys on both sides was released Tuesday, via ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Police did not bring charges to Hill and now the matter has been settled by the two parties
‘The parties to the incident which occurred on June 18th, 2023 at the Haulover Marina involving Tyreek Hill have resolved their differences.’
During the initial incident, Hill reportedly said, ‘I can buy you and the boat’ to the charter’s captain after he had asked the Dolphins No. 10 and his associates to exit the boat — which they had not been given authorization to be on.
According to the Sentinel’s report, Hill ‘became enraged and attempted to enter the boat to cause him bodily harm but was held back by unknown associates.’
Surveillance footage of the incident ‘backed up the boat captain’s and employee’s accounts’, per the police report. Though, no charges were ever brought upon Hill.
‘In situations like that, everybody is disappointed with what we’re talking about. You know, and I think it’s important, when you’re in charge of making decisions, to reserve as much judgment as possible until all the information is collected,’ Miami coach Mike McDaniel said Wednesday.
‘The league is still looking into it, and we’re in communication with the league as we’ve been from the beginning. And, you know, outside of that, I’m looking forward to practice and to be continued as information comes our way.’
There has been no suggestion that Hill is potentially facing a suspension from the NFL.
