Tyreek Hill has made his intentions abundantly clear.
The Dolphins’ superstar wide receiver warned Cowboys stud linebacker Micah Parsons, telling him exactly what was planned.
“Micah Parsons, when I play you on Christmas Day, December 25th, I have a present for you,” Hill said. Speaking on the podcast “It Needed To Be Said”. “I know you saw that little clip of me blocking the D end. I’m that big and off the edge like that, so you better watch your back. I’ll blindfold you, so watch your back. Be careful.”
The impetus for this back-and-forth was Hill’s declaration after the Dolphins’ 36-34 win over the Chargers in Week 1.
Hill, whose speed long earned him the nickname “Cheetah,” bragged. “Maybe I’m not a cheetah, but a lion.” He had a blast of 11 receptions, 215 yards, and two touchdowns.
That prompted Parsons to add his two cents.
“Tyreke, please don’t ever call me a lion again.” [sic],” Parsons said on his podcast:, answered, “The Edge with Micah Parsons.” “Stick to the cheetah. I want nothing to do with this lion business. Stay away from the lion. At least you said you were a lion cub. To me, you become a child. ,brother.”
Hill after that I posted a clip on XEarlier, on Twitter, he posted a photo of himself blocking Patriots linebacker Josh Uche during the Dolphins’ Week 2 win, writing, “The way Micah and Chris Jones are going is way too far.” captioned it.
He echoed the same sentiments on his podcast.
“I’m going to show you who the real lion is in this game,” Hill said. “Because I’m a cheetah and a lion. I’m a true hybrid in the field, baby. So mess it up, big swell.”
