RB Peyton Hillis Looking to Make Some Noise in 2010


Much of the attention surrounding the Cleveland Browns’ running backs has been focused on Jerome Harrison and rookie Montario Hardesty. However, Peyton Hillis, the back acquired in the trade that sent Brady Quinn to the Denver Broncos, wants everyone to know that he plans on getting involved in the Browns’ running game this season.

Hillis has been lining up at different positions during OTAs and made some nice catches out of the backfield last week. If Hillis is looking to prove that the Browns got the better end of the deal, and that he can improve upon his stellar rookie year, his versatility will play a big role in that quest.

Take one look at Hillis and you’ll see how Browns fans are going to gravitate towards this guy. He bowls defenders over and is built like a tank – not to mention his work ethic is exactly in line with what the team wants. He’s a hungry player looking to prove his worth, and his ability to play multiple positions could make him a valuable asset in 2010.

    No offense to Peyton, but it won’t take much to prove that we got the better end of the deal given that we gave up the golden boy.

    I do like the contrast, however, that Hillis provides to the running styles that we have gotten used to in Jennings and Harrison.

    Is that “Touchdown” Tommy Vardell? Actually, I’m looking forward to seeing what Peyton can do. Back in 2008, when he was given the opportunity to start in Denver, he did a great job and finished the season averaging 5 yds/carry. Should be a good change of pace guy.
