Do Over: Hillis Rehires First Agent
Peyton Hillis has not been shy when it comes to hiring agents.
On the field he has been known to reverse fields.
He did such a thing on Tuesday in rehiring the first agent he employed when he came to the NFL.
Hillis rehired Jimmy Sexton, according to ProFootballTalk.com.
This past year has been bumpy and very eventful for the ex-Arkansas Razorback running back.
He saw much less time on the field after being voted by the fans to be on the cover of Madden ’12.
Controversy followed Hillis every week.
He missed a game on the advice of one of his former agents, Kennard McGuire.
Rumors surfaced that he contemplated retirement and was even thinking of joining the CIA.
Hillis shot down those rumors in a recent interview.
Since he came into the NFL, Hillis has employed four agents, with Sexton getting the exciting “do over” tag.
After rushing for 11 TD’s in 2010, Hillis fired Sexton and hired Kelli Masters.
Hillis cast Masters aside and hired McGuire, whom he fired one week ago.
In 2011, Hillis ran for 587 yards in ten games due to illness and injury. He scored 3 times.
That’s one less TD than agents employed during his career.
Sexton works for Creative Artists Agency.
The task now is to try to get Hillis signed to a new deal with the Browns.
He has stated he wants to stay but at what price will the Browns be willing to go to have Hillis and agent #4 sign on the dotted line?
The Browns would need to sign him before March 13 or he becomes an unrestricted free agent.
