The Facts: Hill broke the Dolphins’ single-season receiving yards record in his first season in Miami. His 119 catches were also a team record, and he went for 1,710 yards to break Mark Clayton’s 38-year-old team record for yards. Hill wants more this season. His goal is 2,000 yards, which would set the NFL record. “Oh yeah, for sure [it’s a realistic goal],” Hill said. “I think the added [17th] game gives me quite the advantage, so yeah.”
Diehards Line: Hill still would have to average 117.6 in 17 games to reach 2,000 yards. He averaged a career-best 100.6 last season. Calvin Johnson set the record of 1,964 yards in 16 games in 2012, nine years before the NFL went to 17 games. The health of Tua Tagovailoa will play a big part in Hill’s chances of reaching 2,000 yards. The quarterback missed four games in 2022 with concussions, and Hill had three of his least productive games when Tagovailoa was sidelined. The two are expected to continue their work on their own this offseason. “I’m really hoping that Tua wants to go back to Hawaii because that way, I can sneak a vacation in with the family and also get some work in,” Hill said.
