Tyreek Hill has showcased his backflip celebrations this season, but Andy Reid wants his star receiver to make a slight change to things. 

For the Kansas City Chiefs, Tyreek Hill is having an unreal campaign for the defending Super Bowl champions. Time and time again, the wide receiver showcases his brilliant speed and burns opposing defensive backs.

This season, Hill has added a little more flavor to things, as Chiefs fans have seen him deliver backflips multiple times to celebrate a touchdown. However, rather than do so in the end zone, Hill has stopped short of the goal line and then flipped in for six. While it’s been great to see, head coach Andy Reid didn’t mince words when saying he’d like his standout to mix things up a bit.

Earlier this week on a local radio show, Reid was asked about Hill’s celebration and said he’s okay with the man known as ‘Cheetah’ doing it, as long as he’s made his way into the end zone first. That’s right, Reid wants Hill to actually secure the touchdown first and not stop short.

This is a bit of a surprise. Many out there probably assumed Reid would want Hill to get rid of the arrogant celebration altogether, but instead, he just wants Kansas City to secure the six points first before Hill takes flight.

Hey, Hill has probably earned the right to do things in style. Thus far this season, the speedster has hauled in 74 balls for 1,079 yards and 13 touchdowns from Patrick Mahomes. With Hill playing brilliantly this season, he’s been a big reason why the Chiefs are 11-1 and looked poised to repeat as Super Bowl champs.

Should they get that job done, Hill will no question be a major piece in bringing home another Lombardi Trophy. Who knows, maybe we’ll see some more backflips, but in the end zone, come early February.
