Peyton Hillis had his 15 minutes of fame in 2010 when he was one of the top rushers in the NFL. However, he had an injury plagued 2011 and Cleveland decided to move on from the bruising, but often injured back. He didn’t help his cause by acting like a prima donna in Cleveland after his lone break out season. On March 14, 2012, Hillis signed with the Kansas City Chiefs. Hillis sat down with Fox Sports Radio Daybreak to discuss his experience with the Kansas City Chiefs:

“With Matt (Cassel), he has made extraordinary leaps since he has been in this offense. He was in this offense when he was in New England and it kind of just carried over. He’s looked very poised the last few games and looks like he can really do some damage when he gets the ball back there and he has time to throw. With Jamaal, he’s coming off his ACL tear and he’s looking great. He’s starting to look like he’s 100 percent again and I just like to sit back and watch that guy run because he’s unbelievable and he has unbelievable ball skills, he knows how to get things done. As far as the team goes this is by far the most talented team that I have been on. We just have to put a few things together and start clicking on a lot of cylinders. If we do that I think we can win some ball games.”

“It’s been great. Coach Crennel is a great man; I’ve heard good stories about him even before I came to Kansas City. He was in Cleveland before I got there and he’s such a player’s coach, he knows how to get things done and how to take care of his players. It’s just a blessing in disguise to be reunited with Brian Daboll. He’s been such a blessing to me in the past and hopefully in the future we can continue the same success.”
