I can’t believe this is real. Apparently there are fans out there that haven’t watched football since 2010. Peyton Hillis had a break out year for the Cleveland Browns that year and was even Madden cover man the following year. 5 years, a bad case of strep throat, 3 teams, 1,258 yards and 6 touchdowns later, Hillis is a shell of that breakout season.

The fact that this was a suggestion scares me a little. I’m not sure how he could contribute. Not even as a full back. The Lions will be looking for a young back in the draft this offseason while Hillis will most likely be looking for a broadcasting gig.
