Peyton Hillis had a rough time in Cleveland last year. Coming off a dominant season in 2010, his 2011 season was plagued by injuries and frustration over a lack of contract discussions. At one point it looked like Hillis would be traded, but nothing ever came to fruition. Some are wondering if the Browns will franchise tag Hillis to keep him for another season, but ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that they will not. In fact, Hillis has recently contemplated retiring and pursuing an interesting career.
Throughout the past season, Hillis has wavered about whether he wants to continue playing football, and even considered joining the CIA, according to team sources.
It is unclear if he actually pursued a career with the CIA.
Hillis told Browns coaches as recently as the end of the season that he was contemplating retirement, though it now looks as if he will continue playing, the sources said.
I could see Hillis wanting to quit football and become a police officer or something, but doesn’t working with the CIA require extensive training and — you know — experience? At least Tiger Woods was reportedly training to join the Navy SEALs, although that sounds pretty far-fetched as well. Did Hillis think he was just going to retire from football and apply online? I guess I shouldn’t be telling a man how to dream.
