The Kansas City Chiefs have signed running back Peyton Hillis, giving the team a visionary couple in the ground game with Jamaal Charles. Betting lines

The team officially announced the move, terms were not revealed, but the 1-year agreement is worth $3 million, a league resource claimed.

“We are contented that Peyton decided to join us,” coach Romeo Crennel expounded. “Peyton is an enormous, powerful, physical back with lots of ability and he should fit into our program well. We are looking forward to working with him and adding him into our offense.”

Kansas City could function as a brand new beginning for Hillis, who had a drama- and injury-filled 2nd season in Cleveland after rushing for 1,177 yards in 2010. Hillis won a nationwide fan vote to be the cover figure for “Madden NFL Twelve” last offseason, but then dashed for just 587 yards. Sports scores

He sat out last September 25 against Miami with a session of strep throat, a situation that did not sit well with some squad. He also missed a treatment for his ailing hamstring when he left during a work week to get married. Hillis in addition has modified agents multiple times in the last year.

“Circumstances failed to work in my favor this year,” Hillis claimed in December. “There are a few things that occurred this year that made me believe strongly in curses. Ain’t any doubt about it.”

With the Chiefs, Hillis will be brought together with Brian Daboll, his former offensive coordinator in Cleveland who’s now in the same position in Kansas City.

Hillis, a bruiser at 6-2, 250 pounds, has played fullback and tailback during his career, the sort of flexibility that made him engaging to the Chiefs. His bulldozing ability also will help enhance Charles and the fast Dexter McCluster in the backfield.

Hillis additionally could carry the load as the lead rusher if Charles isn’t fully recovered from a knee injury that sidelined him for the season after Week two.

Kansas City needed to sign another rusher after allowing running backs Thomas Jones and Jackie Battle, and fullback Le’Ron McClain to become independent agents last week.

McClain confirmed a 3-year cope with the San Diego Chargers on Wednesday.

“Peyton was a player we intended to target when free agency started,” Chiefs director Scott Pioli expounded. “One of our goals going into free agency this year was to develop depth at the running back position and we are happy to add a proficient player like Peyton to the mix.”

Hillis, a 7th-round pick out of Arkansas in 2008, also played 2 seasons with Denver. He originally started at fullback, but became the No. One ballcarrier – and a fan favorite – as a newbie when a few of the Broncos’ running backs landed on injured reserve.

After not being used much by then-Broncos coach Josh McDaniels in 2009, Hillis was traded to Cleveland for 2 draft picks and quarterback Brady Quinn. He was slated to be the Browns’ starting fullback, but once again took over the featured role due to injuries and ran for 1,000 yards for the 1st time.

Hillis has rushed for 2,161 yards and twenty touchdowns in four seasons, and has caught 101 passes for 805 yards and 3 scores.
