Tyreek Hill’s threats were not enough to suspend him, the NFL announced on Friday.
The NFL will not suspend Chiefs wide receiver under its personal conduct policy in a domestic violence case involving his 3-year-old son.
The league says in a statement Friday it has not been given access to information in the court proceedings, and a district attorney in June said an investigation was dropped because officials couldn’t prove who injured the boy.
There was tape of Hill and fiancee Crystal Espinal arguing over their 3-year-old son’s broken arm with Espinal telling Hill their child was “terrified” of him.
“You need to be terrified of me too, bitch,” Hill allegedly says on the recording. “That’s why you can’t keep a f–king man.”
The league says “information developed in the court proceeding is confidential and has not been shared with us” and all law enforcement records are sealed.
The statement adds: “Local law enforcement authorities have publicly advised that the available evidence does not permit them to determine who caused the child’s injuries.”
Hill was suspended in April by the Chiefs, though the team is allowing him to return at training camp.
“We have been informed of the decision by the National Football League that, based on the available evidence, the league has not found that Tyreek Hill violated the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy,” the Chiefs said in a statement. “Based on the information provided to us by the league, we have decided it is appropriate for Tyreek to return to the team at the start of training camp. The club fully supports the conditions for return laid out by the league and will continue to monitor any new developments in the case. We are glad to welcome Tyreek back to the team and look forward to the start of training camp next week.”
