On Wednesday, Cleveland Browns left tackle Joe Thomas called out former Browns running back Peyton Hillis for being “toxic” to the locker room last season.
“Joe Thomas, he can have his opinions all he wants,” Hillis told Kansas City reporters Thursday. “He’s kind of like a crazy ex-girlfriend. It’s been over a year. Get over it.
“But I guess when you get paid over 100 million dollars by one team, it’s kind of easy to point the finger at other guys and try to hate on them for trying to get another contract.”
Though Hillis said that he doesn’t have any “bitterness or resentment or regrets,” Thomas’ comments certainly seemed to get under his skin.
It’s hard not to love some trash talking going on between players, especially when they don’t hold back. The only shame is that these two won’t be on the field at the same time this Sunday.
