Chiefs' Hillis reacts tersely to Browns' Thomas

Updated:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Chiefs running back Peyton Hillis responded tersely to comments by former teammate Joe Thomas, likening him to a "crazy ex-girlfriend" who won't move on.

Thomas, the Browns' offensive tackle, said Wednesday that Hillis didn't always play hard during his time in Cleveland. He referred to Hillis as "toxic" and accused him of putting his contract situation ahead of the team.

The Chiefs visit the Browns on Sunday.

Hillis responded Thursday by saying, "Joe Thomas, he can have his opinions all he wants. It's kind of like a crazy ex-girlfriend, you know? It's been over a year. Get on with it."

Hillis said it's easy for Thomas to rip others for seeking a new contract when "you get paid $100 million by one team."
