Former Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hilis fired back at All-Pro offensive lineman Joe Thomas on Thursday, responding to allegations that the former Madden coverboy created a toxic situation during his contract dispute with the team. “It’s kind of like a crazy ex-girlfriend,” Hillis said of Thomas’ remarks. “It’s been over a year. Get over it. I guess when you get paid over $100 million 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’ mention of Thomas’ hard-earned contract may speak volumes as 2011 provided a year where the Browns extended the left tackle for seven years and $84 million while Hillis reportedly shot down an offer that would net him $3 million guaranteed. Thomas stated that Hillis created a tough situation for the entire Browns locker room by leaving them depleted at running back while other players nursed legitimate injuries. “It was just the fact, he decided his contract was more important than coming out and playing and helping his team win,” said Thomas. During the offseason heading into 2012, Hillis signed a one-year contract with the Chiefs, netting him $3 million. On the season, he has 59 carries for 193 yards and one touchdown. “I don’t have any bitterness or resentment or regrets,” said Hillis. “I did what I did.” [Related: Joe Thomas’ Peyton Hillis comments just felt like the truth | Hillis photoshop]  (Source: Kansas City Star)
