Peyton Hillis responds to critical comments from Joe Thomas

Jeff Curry-US PRESSWIRE

Former Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis referred to Joe Thomas as being like "a crazy ex-girlfriend".

After being thrown under the bus by old teammate Joe Thomas earlier this week, former Cleveland Browns tailback Peyton Hillis fired right back at accusations that he was more concerned with his contract than the team while in Cleveland.

Hillis told Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star that he doesn't have any bitterness or resentment towards anyone in the organization, and that his former teammate merely needs to get over his obvious grudge.

"It’s kind of like a crazy ex-girlfriend,’’ Hillis said. "It’s been over a year. Get over it. 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.’’

Hillis also mentioned that he would not change a thing about how he acted last season with the team, despite the fact that he sat out numerous games with ailments which were deemed extremely questionable by Thomas and other teammates.

In addition to struggling with both injuries and playing time since inking a one-year deal with Kansas City in March, Hillis' Chiefs are still currently tied with Jacksonville for the worst record in the NFL. Both the Chiefs and Browns will square off this Sunday in a key game for both franchises, but clearly there will be plenty of bad blood entering the weekend.
