KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KSNT) – The Kansas City Chiefs will hold on to wide receiver Tyreek Hill a little longer.

The team announced Friday they signed wide receiver Tyreek Hill to a contract extension. ESPN reports Hill will stay with the team three more years in a $54 million contract.

The extension comes less than two months after the NFL decided Hill would not be suspended after he was involved in a criminal child abuse investigation with his son and fiance.

The Chiefs kick off the 2019 regular season against the Jaguars Sunday at noon.
