No Visit to Green Bay for RB Peyton Hillis?

No Visit to Green Bay for RB Peyton Hillis?

While first reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter that Kansas City Chiefs running back Peyton Hillis would visit Green Bay, Cheesehead TV's Aaron Nagler has heard otherwise.

According to a source Nagler considers reliable, Hillis does not have any visit lined up.

The back-and-forth with Hillis continues to look like a leverage play with Steven Jackson, who makes much more sense to Green Bay but is also worth more on the open market.

Hillis, 27, ran for 305 yards and one score in 13 games last season with the Chiefs.

I really hate Hillis. Hope we don't touch that cancer.

Why a cancer?

And maybe the Pack figured they didn't need yet another ineffective short yardage RB. Pretty sad when I dreaded 3rd and 1 plays....

I just hope TT signs Jackson. Another season of Green running up the rear end of his blockers or hoping Starks can stay healthy would blow!

Agree with packsmack. I don't want that dude anywhere near our team. Why can't we just draft a young RB for the future IM tired of these old washed up dudes

"Why can’t we just draft a young RB for the future "

We have. His name was Brandon Jackson, I mean Alex Green.

We do draft young RB's they just do not pan out . Money needs to be spent elsewhere. Like d-fense with capers at the helm. Plus someone else needs to call plays besides mcarthy Deep down AR would agree with that too

What is the hate w/ Hillis? I must have missed something.
I think he'd make a great FB?
Hillis @ FB, and Jackson, RB, WOW!

Did you not hear about how he acted in Cleveland?

Hillis has the body type to be groom him into a FB.
His age and timing are perfect for the position!
Just sayin.

Didn't he enter the league as a FB?

dawg's picture

Maybe, , but teams played him as a RB.

Evan's picture

I know that. I'm just talking about the idea that he needs to be "groomed" to be a FB. I think he already has been. I'd love to see him take Kuhn's role at half the price.

Agree with Evan. Hillis is a FB and always was. The only reason he was a RB was due to injury. Replace him with Kuhn. I like Kuhn, but Hillis would be better/cheaper. Hillis can run, catch, block better than most FB.

Look at the tape, Hillis has a nasty game!
Just what the PACKERS NEED!!

Stroh's picture

He used to... Now he has next to no game. He's used up and is more a RB in a FB body. I don't think he has any interest in playing FB.

dawg's picture

I really think if youi use him as a FB, Khun style, he will be an animal.

dawg's picture

He's not a lead horse, BUT, if you put some weight on him, and w/ his attitude ,he's gonna punch you in the mouth!!

dawg's picture

Thats why TT bought him in! He's nasty

This team needs attitude!

The real story should be that Schefter is getting it wrong more than right and is just hearing rumors and going on air to spout those rumors. Perhaps the people in the know don't want to talk to this guy?

The story should be, three days into free agency and no Jackson yet. I felt from day one the guy either wanted to get a ton o money or go back to the Rams and finish career. Me thinks he is talking to Rams for reduced money now that no one bit on him.
