Mercurial Kansas City Chiefs star Tyreek Hill dropped to his knees on Sunday and pretended to urinate like a dog while being introduced at the start of the AFC Championship game against the Tennessee Titans.
Unlike Odell Beckham and Elijah Moore before him, the 25-year-old Hill pulled off the juvenile act — most commonly associated with disrespecting another team’s stadium — on his own field.
Beckham, while with the Giants in 2017, was fined more than $12,000 after pretending to urinate on the Eagles’ field in a loss.
Moore, the Ole Miss wide receiver, infamously cost his team big-time when his canine impersonation led to a penalty against rival Mississippi State that pushed back what would have been a game-tying extra point.
The kicker missed, and Moore immediately was blamed for the loss.
Some on social media speculated Hill was marking his territory.
Hill had seven touchdowns and 58 receptions for 860 yards in 12 regular-season games.
The start of his year was in jeopardy following an alleged domestic incident involving his three-year-old son, who suffered a broken arm. The NFL decided not to suspend Hill after the district attorney concluded they couldn’t prove who injured the boy.
While in college in 2014, Hill was convicted for domestic assault and battery by strangulation after allegedly punching and choking his then-pregnant girlfriend. The conviction was dismissed and expunged after Hill completed probation.
