Hillis: Joe Thomas Acting Like 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend'

Dec 6, 2012 4:49 PM

Peyton Hillis was criticized by former Cleveland Browns' teammate Joe Thomas about refusing to play while sick and injured and for being the source of a "toxic" situation in the locker room.

Hillis responded when asked about the remarks by the Kansas City Star.

“It’s kind of like a crazy ex-girlfriend. 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.’’
