Peyton Hillis, a fan favorite way back in 2010, has left Cleveland to sign with the Kansas City Chiefs. Hillis will get a fresh start after signing a 1-year deal with the Chiefs worth $3 million today. I’ll have to double check this with Mr. Lisk, but Hillis has to be one of the greatest one-year wonders in modern NFL history.
In 2010, Hillis rushed for 1177 yards, caught 61 passes for 477 yards and scored 13 total touchdowns. Those totals dwarf the totals from his other three seasons in the NFL. Last season he battled injuries and averaged 3.6 yards per carry, but the magic was gone and Cleveland was done with the man we lovingly called The Albino Rhino / Predator / Thundercock / Avalanche.
