Tyreek Hill unhappy with speed rating in Madden, says it will change
Tyreek Hill is arguably the most explosive player in the NFL, but the creators the latest edition of the long-running “Madden” video game feel he is not the fastest. The Chiefs wide receiver has a serious issue with that, and he insists it is going to be addressed.
In an appearance on PFT Live Friday, Hill was asked how his speed rating in “Madden 18” is only a 97. He said he has no explanation but that he has spoken with someone at EA Sports about it.
“I have spoken to someone from EA,” Hill said. “They were like, ‘Hey, we’re gonna change it. We’re gonna change it.’ I have no idea. … I need my credit, you know what I’m saying? If I’m putting in the work, give me the results, baby. It’s only a matter of time. They’re gonna do it.”
For what it’s worth, no player has a 99 speed rating in the game. The only player listed as faster than Hill is Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver John Ross, who has a 98 rating. While Ross hardly played in 2017 because of injuries, the former Washington star posted the fastest 40-yard dash time in NFL Combine history, so that is hard to ignore.
If Hill has another season in 2018 like the one he had last year, perhaps “Madden” will give him a boost. Then again, we saw how Dez Bryant got trolled by the creators when he was unhappy with his rating.
