The NFL might begin moving on Tyreek Hill very soon.

The league could soon place the Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver on the commissioner’s exempt list, which means he wouldn’t be allowed to play or participate in team activities. The decision could come as soon as this week, according to ESPN, (RELATED: Tyreek Hill Case Re-Opened After Disturbing Audio Emerges)

Hill is currently under investigation after his child suffered a broken arm and an audio tape surfaced of him appearing to discuss child abuse and threatening his fiancée.

Authorities initially closed the child abuse case without filing charges, but it was re-opened after the tape became public.

You can listen to part of the audio below:

The NFL has to do something. The league isn’t a courtroom, and it doesn’t need a conviction to discipline a player. Given the situation with Hill, who has a history of domestic violence allegations, and what’s publicly out there, there’s no doubt at all in my mind he shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near an NFL field.

That audio tape above is more than enough in my mind to show him the exit. Judging from a recent poll I ran, most people feel the exact same way.

The league simply can’t have the perception that it’s okay with players accused of child abuse and threatening women playing in games. It just can’t.

At some point, a line in the sand has to be drawn and it looks like that’s where we’re at with Hill. As long as this situation continues to unfold, he shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near the Chiefs or the league.
