New York Giants cut ties with running back Peyton Hillis

peytonThe New York Giants have released running back Peyton Hillis. Hillis was brought on midway through the 2013 campaign after David Wilson suffered his career-ending neck injury. The former Broncos, Browns and Chiefs back piled up 362 yards at 3.7 yards per clip over the past two seasons, operating primarily as a short-yardage thumper for the G-Men.

With Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams ahead of Hills on the depth chart, he was likely a candidate to be released anyway.  The team will likely look for another back in the draft or free agency.  I would expect them to have more than 3 running backs on their roster.  The Giants could try to sign a scat back who can run and catch out the backfield.
