Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reported Tuesday that Hillis will remain with the New York Giants after signing a two-year deal worth $1.8 million, according to a source.

Hillis was out of football when the Giants called him up last October following several injuries to their backfield. Hillis appeared in seven games (one start), finishing with 247 yards on 73 carries (3.4 yards per rush) with two touchdowns.

Hillis is 28 and hasn't been an impact player since his breakout season with the Cleveland Browns in 2010. He provides depth in the Giants' backfield, but consider it a surprise (and very bad sign) if he's competing for a significant role in training camp.
