The Kansas City Chiefs now have a two headed monster at running back. Starter Jamaal Charles will be backed up by newly signed Peyton Hillis.
Hillis broke onto the scene in 2010 after rushing for 1,177 yards and 11 touchdowns. He then went on to win a nationwide fan vote to be the cover figure for “Madden NFL 12” last offseason. He soon fell to the Madden curse as last season he rushed for just 587 yards and only three touchdowns.
“Things didn’t work in my favor this year,” Hillis said in December. “There’s a few things that happened this year that made me believe in curses. Ain’t no doubt about it.”
This is a great signing by the Chiefs and this could turn into one of the steals of the free agent pool.
Look for Hillis to have a comeback year behind superstar starter, Jamaal Charles.
