Does Hillis really want to join the CIA? (Getty Images)
By Josh Katzowitz

We told you a couple days ago that the Browns were unlikely to franchise tag running back Peyton Hillis but might still attempt to sign him in free agency.

if Hillis doesn’t retire, that is.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, that’s exactly what Hillis has thought about, even telling the team at the end  of 2011 that he was considering ending his four-year career. Apparently, he’s even thought about joining the CIA (!).

NFL News, Notes
Hillis is a free agent (No. 8 in our rankings), but he and his agent are no longer working together.

"If we can work something out with Peyton, we will," Browns general manager Tom Heckert told ESPN’s Josina Anderson. "Did he have some rough patches during the season? Yes. Were there stretches where things were blown out of proportion? Yes. Honestly, I feel like a lot of that was blown up in the media. Now, of course things will still come down to the money, but we'll just have to wait and see."

The Browns could use the franchise tag on Hillis, but they probably won’t, because it would cost $7.7 million, and considering Hillis is coming off a disappointing season in which some questioned his desire to fight through injuries and his desire to play, that’s not necessarily a smart investment.

So, we’re unclear at this point if Hillis wants to return to Cleveland, if the Browns want him back or if Hillis wants to forgo football and become a spy.

But here’s what we do know: the curse of the Madden cover most definitely lives on.

Tebow#15, No man, you are not dumber for reading my post. You were dumb to begin with. This is obvious, since you used an Adam Sandler movie quote in an attempt to make a bad point. (To rob another movie quote; Do you have any thoughts of your own on this? Or is that your things? Too lazy to actually read a book, so you watch a movie, steal a quote from it, and pass it off as an off the cuff witty remark to a post on the CBS Community? 

No my friend, your being dumber has nothing to do with reading my post, which is actually hugely accented with sarcasm. One of the most obvious signs of an idiot is when they take exaggeration and sarcasm as serious, then take the time to reply to it as if it were serious.

You remind me of a cat I knew who made some dumbassed comments when I said another fellow is so pooosy whipped that his wife makes him sit to pee so he doesn't make a mess. Well, the dumbass went on about "that would be the day that I did that, and what kind of wife does that, etc, etc..... You see the similarities, meathead???

CIA? Now that's funny. Yeah sure, he qualifies!
PH has been watching too many Jason Bourne movies.
He'd have a better shot of joining the Xmen with that Touchdown Dance!

Heyton Pillis is obviously a dumb b*stard. I heard from a reliable source that he scored a 4 on the Wunderlic test. Remember that one? He would never get hired by the CIA precisely because he is so stupid. I believe the CIA requires a score of at least 30 on the Wunderlic test.  He's also weak, once sat out a college game because he had a tummy ache.  If I were cleveland, I'd trade him for a sack of footballs and plastic cones. One hit wonder. 75% of other running back in the league are better than him and don't come with the weird baggage he brings.

Your only good statement in this whole thing is, "As a running back, he is not worth 7.7m per year."  I am dumber for reading this:(

It's amazing so many Americans are clueless when it comes to the CIA. You know they do have analysts, recruiters, accountants, lawyers, people with specialized weapons knowledge, computer programers, etc. Not everyone is covert.

But, again, media, nice job taking a dig at the man.

Is this guy retarded??? OMG. Not only has he made an ass of himself on an international level, but I think he has watched too many Austin Powers movies :D  Could you imagine him as a spy? Bahahahaha. That would be a tough one for the enemy to figure out, hey? "Das luuks yust liking fuutball playing guy who wanted to being in CIA!" Ha, he would be the shortest tenured agent in history; on youtube getting his head lopped off by the Taliban.  Oh well, sometimes the slow gazelle gotta get eaten, and everyone knows we need to thin out the herd a bit on the planet as in a very short period of time, we will not have enough resources to feed everyone.

  As a running back, he is not worth 7.7 million. His teammates will never respect him again, so he is essentially finished in Cleveland. I think he had 1 really pretty good year and that's it. I will go on record that he will never be a serious factor again (I could be wrong, but that's how I see it). His big headed dumbass is done as a serious RB in the NFL, so he better hope to get another year or two in with mid 7 figure salary and put every cent away. His stupid ass will be broke within a couple years anyway.

PS: For the black dude who needed to make this a race issue; stupid has no skin color. But then of course, you should already know this. If you were blind and had no idea what color you were, you would still be stupid, no?

PSS: For anybody out there who feels the need to express the white guilt; maybe you should talk to the Irish about slavery and bigotry by the British. The Brits enslaved the Irish long before they even knew there were Africans in Africa. The Irish put up with it for a couple hundred more years than any Africans, and I don't see the Irish getting a whole lot of sympathy. Nor is there a National Association for the Advancement of Irish People, a United Irish Honkey College Fund, Miss Irish America, or even the Irish Panthers :D  

  All this shyte about race, color, religion etc, is just a pile of shyte used by the system to keep people divided and at odds with each other so we all don't get together to do something about what's really wrong with our country and planet. When people put their petty shyte aside, they do spectacular things like the French Revolution, the Cuban Revolution, the American Revolution, etc etc. You see where I am going. The people in charge use a slight of hand to keep us all distracted while they fook up the planet. Maybe we shouldn't be waiting until we are starving and broke-assed before enforcing change, like most countries and nations have in the past.

PSSS: Hillis sucks and is a dumb bast-turd, whether he is white, black, brown, yellow, or green.
