A criminal investigation into allegations that Kansas
OLATHE Maxx Crosby Jersey , Kan. (AP) — City Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill’s son was abused is no longer active.Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe told The Kansas City Star Friday he would re-evaluate his decision if new evidence emerges. Howe said he still believes the 3-year-old boy was hurt but he declined in April to file charges because he couldn’t prove who injured the child.The Chiefs suspended Hill on April 25 after a local television station aired a recording of a conversation between Hill and his fiancee, Crystal Espinal, discussing the boy’s injuries. Hill has consistently maintained his innocence, saying his son’s health is his top priority.At the time, owner Clark Hunt said he was “deeply disturbed” by the audio recording. Chiefs spokesman Ted Crews said Friday the team would have no new comment on Hill’s situation. Hill has been banned from the team’s offseason voluntary workouts. The Chiefs end their offseason next week with mandatory minicamp.After the tape emerged in April Hakeem Butler Jersey , Chiefs coach Andy Reid said the criminal investigation was reopened . Howe did not respond when asked if that was true, but Hill’s attorney, Trey Pettlon, said Friday the criminal case has been closed for “quite some time now.”“Obviously there’s been some misinformation about that, but it is closed Chris Lindstrom Jersey ,” Pettlon said.A spokesman for the Kansas Department for Children and Families, Mike Denies, said he could not comment on its ongoing investigation of the couple.The NFL is investigating the case but Commissioner Roger Goodell said in May it was waiting for permission to interview Hill because the league didn’t want to interfere with the child welfare case. The league could punish Hill under its personal conduct policy.The investigation began after police were called to Hill’s home twice in March and determined the child had been injured. In the 11-minute audio recording reportedly made by Espinal in an airport in Dubai, she tells Hill when the boy was asked about his injured arm he replied: “Daddy did it.”Hill denied any role in what happened to the child, saying: “He says Daddy does a lot of things.”When Espinal tells Hill their son is “terrified of you ,” he replies, “You need to be terrified of me, too, bitch.”In a letter sent to the NFL in May, Pettlon denied that Hill ever hit his son and said Hill was willing to cooperate with the NFL investigation. Pettlon noted the recording was made when the couple was considering a separation. He said the couple was undergoing counseling and Hill is “committed to improving his life and becoming the best parent he can be.”The Chiefs drafted Hill even though he pleaded guilty in 2015 to domestic assault and battery for attacking Espinal while he was a student at Oklahoma State. He was dismissed from the Oklahoma State football team and ended up playing at West Alabama Kendall Sheffield Jersey , where he underwent counseling sessions and other court-mandated service work. The Eagles exercised their fifth-year option on quarterback Carson Wentz‘s contract last week in a move that was expected despite the fact that the deal is guaranteed in case of injury.Given Wentz’s back-to-back season-ending injuries, that’s not a minor consideration and his durability is something that’s also come up in discussions about signing Wentz to a long-term deal. Some, like former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb, have suggested that the Eagles take their time before committing to Wentz.Eagles executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman hasn’t shown much trepidation about the prospect in the past and his tune remained the same during a Tuesday appearance on WIP. Roseman said the team has “so much faith” in Wentz and “wouldn’t hesitate” to do the right deal with the quarterback right now.“This guy is going to be a great player for the Philadelphia Eagles for a long time,” Roseman said.The devil is , as always, in the details. The right deal for the Eagles might not be the right one for Wentz, although having the 2020 option in place leaves time to sort those things out.
