Miami Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill is in the prime of his career, but he's already got the finish line in sight. During a radio interview on Wednesday, Hill mentioned he's targeting the 2025 NFL season as his last.

"I'm going for 10 [seasons], man," Hill said. "I'm gonna finish out this contract with the Dolphins, and then I'm gonna call it quits. I want to go into the business side. I want to do so many things in my life, bro. I really want to get into the gaming space. I really want to get huge in that, and that's kind of what I'm doing right now. I'm using my platform to create a gaming team, which isn't launched yet. It should launch by the end of this month."

Hill would be just 31 years old in 2025, and his contract with the Dolphins runs through 2026. However, there's an out built into the contract in 2025 that would save the Dolphins roughly $45 million in cap space. He signed a four-year, $120 million deal with Miami following his trade from the Kansas City Chiefs.

The speedy wideout mentioned he left the Chiefs because they were unwilling to give him a raise during the 2022 offseason. Hill cited Christian Kirk's four-year, $72 million deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars as the final straw.

"[Kirk] signed the deal [with the Jaguars], and like he surpassed me, and I'm like, bro, I compete on the field, and I also compete on the business out of this, too," Hill said. "I'm not going to let Kirk have a higher contract than me. I'm not. I'm just not."

Hill's contract with the Dolphins pays him $30 million AAV, putting him ahead of every other NFL receiver. He backed up his new contract on the field, finishing 2022 with 119 receptions and 1,710 yards receiving, which eclipsed Mark Clayton's mark for the most in Dolphins' history.
