Yeah, this isn’t going to end well.
A day after Browns tackle said Chiefs running back Peyton Hillis became a bad teammate while looking for a new contract, Hillis dismissed Thomas as a stalker.
According to the Associated Press, Hillis said Thomas was like a “crazy ex-girlfriend” who refused to move on.
Browns tackle Joe Thomas got the ball rolling yesterday, accusing Hillis of selling out the Browns in his quest for a new contract, saying he was “basically refusing to play” last year.
“Joe Thomas, he can have his opinions all he wants,” Hillis said. “It’s kind of like a crazy ex-girlfriend, you know? It’s been over a year. Get on with it.”
He also said it was easy for Thomas to take shots at him when “you get paid $100 million by one team,” referring to the eight-year, $92 million contract Thomas signed last August.
Of course, referencing the contract he obviously was looking himself for doesn’t help him look like a sympathetic character here.
