The Tampa Bay Buccaneers clip Peyton Hillis

Peyton Hillis hasn’t had much to celebrate about lately.

Listed as a healthy scratch last weekend, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers formally released running back Peyton Hillis on Saturday.

Previously the fourth choice in Tampa Bay’s backfield, the 27-year-old Hillis is now a free agent lacking any known suitors.

Hillis has been employed by four NFL organizations since being taken by the Denver Broncos out of Arkansas with the 227th pick in 2008.

The face of Madden NFL 12 has rushed for 2,470 yards and 21 touchdowns over 65 games.

Hillis has additionally caught 111 pigskins for 867 yards and three scores.

Capable of completing the 40-yard dash in 4.57 seconds, the 6-foot-2, 251 pound Hillis is a bruiser who can gain ground after contact and fatigue a defense.

Furthermore, the diesel Razorback is an efficient receiver who has proven to be a legitimate every-down option.

However, brittle and apparently cunty, it is concerning that the Buccaneers’ 27th ranked offense found Hillis to be useless.

Although Greg Schiano is a certified clowns pocket, Hillis should have been productive in the “Cigar City.”

Unfortunately, besides trying to bang Josh McDaniels’ wife, Hillis only made noise as a pro in 2010.

Without a fresh outlook and recommitment to football, Peyton Hillis will remain a jobless disappointment.
