Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill released a statement Friday following the NFL's decision to not suspend him.

Hill said he was falsely accused of abusing his 3-year-old son and expressed his appreciation to the league "for conducting a thorough investigation."

"I will not let you down," Hill wrote.

Here is the statement in full:

The last few months have been very difficult for me, especially as a father. The false allegations originally reported in March were highly publicized and involved the care of my son. I am grateful for so many things and grateful for so many people who have supported me during this challenging time. I fully respect and accept the NFL's decision.

To the fans, friends, and family that I have made in Kansas City: I love you and thank you for your continued support. To the NFLPA, Mr. Ned Ehrlich: thank you for your dedication, understanding and guidance throughout this process. To the NFL, Commissioner Goodell and everyone who assisted in this investigation: thank you for your time and for conducting a thorough investigation. I will not let you down.

To the Kansas City Chiefs, Clark Hunt, Brett Veach, Coach Reid, the entire organization and Chiefs Kingdom: you gave me a home when everyone doubted me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I love you all. I can assure you that I will continue to work to be the person, player, and teammate that you envisioned me to be.

To my children, my beautiful children: I love you all dearly and I promise you all that I will continue to strive to be the best father, the best friend, the best role model, and the best mentor that I can be.

I love you all.

The Chiefs announced Hill will return for the start of training camp on July 26 and the team said it "fully supports the conditions for (Hill's) return laid out by the league and will continue to monitor any new developments in the case."
