Since the Giants are dealing with numerous injuries and problems at the running back position, they have signed RB Peyton Hillis. The former Arkansas back was most recently with the Tampa Bay Bucs about a month ago before his release.
We're far removed from Hillis' breakout 2010 season with the Browns. Last season, he was a part-time contributor to the Chiefs, behind Jamaal Charles on the depth chart. Hillis will likely play backup behind Brandon Jacobs . The Giants are already without David Wilson , Andre Brown and Da'Rel Scott was waived again. It's too bad they don't yet fully trust Michael Cox. He showed some flashes during the preseason.
