There has been lots of open speculation that Peyton Hillis will not be returning to the Cleveland Browns next year. Talks have been made that he'll land in Dallas, or maybe end up as the smash back in a tandem like Brandon Jacob's role is with the Giants. With the NFL's transition to less featured backs and more two headed monsters for rushing attacks I could see Hillis ending up in San Francisco, Seattle, Miami, Tennessee, or what I would prefer Arizona. I know the Cardinals have Beanie Wells, Ryan Williams, Chester Taylor, and THE LSH. But I have to admit I'm worried about Williams return next year. I know (hope) he's going to be great, but I don't know if he'll be able to bring his game at the same level of intensity because they say it takes a full year to return from the serious injury that he suffered. Because of that I'd like to see the Cardinals backfield be filled with a three headed monster of Wells, Hillis, Williams, and our Scat back kick returner LSH.
That way if one back goes down due to injury we do not see an immediate collapse in the production of the ground game. LSH and Taylor don't have the body type or playing style that Wells has, and if it takes time for Williams to return to form I would prefer that he does that slowly rather than being pushed into service. Bring in Hillis and have a stable of running backs who are punishing and be more prepared for consistency even during adversity.
Any thoughts on Hillis in Cardinal Red?
