07:19 AM ET 03.03 | Browns running back Peyton Hillis told The Plain Dealer on Friday that a report stating he told Browns coaches he contemplated retiring as recently as the end of the season and pondered joining the CIA was absolutely false. "It makes me sound insane," Hillis said. Set to become an unrestricted free agent March 13, Hillis said he thinks someone gave the story to ESPN to try to devalue him in free agency.

Well, I suppose he has to have some reason to explain his colossal failure of a season.

This is actually true because he cannot spell CIA if you spot him the C and A. LOL

And thinking that your soon to be former team or someone else leaking a story to hurt you doesn't make you sound insane?

QUOTE(#9):

wtf happened to this guy?

The Madden curse???

Or losing Vickers as your fullback then changing your offense to the West Coast knowing full well that you don't have the tools to run it. Add that to a rookie HC who had terrible play calling and didn't know how to effectively use him!

I blame Madden! lol

Well, Smorgy Bob's Buffet can always use a new doorman....Especially one that is security minded...

The problem, Peyton, is that both the story and your possible insanity are plausible.

March 3, 2012  10:58 AM ET

"Admit nothing, deny everything, make counter accusations." Are we supposed to believe you, Peyton?
