We continue to inch closer to the 2023 NFL Draft, and that’s one of the biggest weekends in the NFL offseason. Most front offices are working to get ready for that weekend, but there are other things taking place throughout the league as well.
Despite most teams working in the background, there have still been some news that has developed around the league. Here are three of the biggest NFL news stories that have come out over the last few days.
Hill Ready to Walk Away
Miami Dolphins star wide receiver Tyreek Hill made some interesting comments on a Kansas City radio show earlier this week. There were several topics discussed during the radio show, but the length of Hill’s career was the biggest takeaway.
During the show, Hill announced that he plans to walk away from the NFL after his contract with the Dolphins expires. With that current end date being set for 2025, that means that Hill might only play just three more years.
Hill expressed interest in doing some business things after his playing career, and that is more interesting to him than playing in the NFL. The Dolphins gave Hill a massive free agent deal to lure him from the Chiefs, and they are hoping that it leads to some massive success.
The wide receiver also had some comments for Chiefs fans about what he plans to do during his return to Arrowhead Stadium in the 2023 season.
Peters Announces His Retirement
This is also the time of year in which players make decisions on their future, and there have been several players that have announced their retirement. Defensive lineman Corey Peters is the latest to make this announcement, wrapping up a 12-year playing career.
The 34-year-old played in just 12 games during the 2022 season with the Jacksonville Jaguars, but that included just three starts. Peters made this retirement announcement on Instagram, and thanked the fans for all of their support.
Peters began his season with the Atlanta Falcons, but is most known for his work with the Arizona Cardinals. He had a career-high 50 tackles during the 2018 season, and was also active off the field in the Arizona community.
Atlanta initially selected Peters in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft out of the University of Kentucky.
Elway No Longer With Broncos
Denver Broncos legend John Elway is no longer employed by the franchise that he once led to a Super Bowl. Elway had been working as a consultant with the team, but his contract was not renewed after it expired on March 15.
Elway was the general manager of the team from 2011 to 2021 but transitioned out of that role with the hiring of George Paton. There is now a new ownership group in place in Denver, and that group no longer required the services of Elway.
Elway initially had a great start to his GM career with the team, but things took a rough turn near the end of his tenure.
