Peyton Hillis responds to former Browns teammate Joe Thomas

Hillis says Thomas is "like a crazy ex-girlfriend." (US Presswire)

On Thursday, Browns left tackle Joe Thomas spoke frankly about his former teammate, running back Peyton Hillis, who went from the unofficial face of the organization and Madden cover dude to "that unstable guy who was distracted by that new contract he was angling for."

"I think it was better for both sides [that he left]," Thomas said. "At that point, the situation with him here was toxic, and he didn't want to be here and players didn't want him here. It was better for a fresh start at that point."

A day later, Hillis was apprised of Thomas' remarks and was kind enough to offer a response.


So that happened, which makes Sunday's matchup between the four-win Browns and the two-win Chiefs infinitesimally more interesting.
