Peyton Hillis did an exclusive interview with the Mary Kay Cabot, at The Plain Dealer. Hillis says the CIA story is false and it makes him sound insane. Hillis got that right. The story without a doubt made him look insane, I had people asking me if I thought the CIA even wanted Peyton Hillis. Hillis thinks someone came up with the story to devalue him in free agency, but he has no idea who would do such a thing.
Hillis already devalued himself enough with his on field and off field performance last season. Hillis went on to say he would take a discount to stay with the Browns. Hillis said he thinks the team wants him to test the open market beginning next week and that he’d love to hear what they have to offer. It would be amazing if the Browns didn’t resign this guy.

After a letdown season plagued by flaky behavior and disappointing production on the field, Peyton Hillis won’t be given the franchise tag by the Browns, meaning he’ll now hit the open free agent market. That makes his search for his fourth different agent in the span of a year a little more urgent. Teams will undoubtedly be lining around the block for his services, considering...
k, what do spies do?
From ESPN‘s Adam Schefter today come two revelations about Peyton Hillis, one surprising, one not so much.

Do what now?
The Browns have made the decision...

The Cleveland Browns have placed the franchise tag on placekicker Phil Dawson for the second year in a row.
Which means the Browns are still at the point that their kicker is one of the better and more professional players on the roster.
It also means running back should be added to the team's list of offseason needs. Because with Dawson franchised, it almost surely increases...
