"It's been over a year. Get over it," Hillis told Kansas City Star reporter Adam Teicher. "I guess when you get paid over 100 million dollars by one team, it's kind of easy to point the finger at other guys and try to hate on them for trying to get another contract."
Until Thomas keys Hillis' car in a jealous rage, we're just going to chuckle at the ex-girlfriend bit and look at the facts. Thomas, who signed an eight-year, $92 million contract last year, doesn't exactly have a reputation for shooting off at the mouth. He's a five-time Pro Bowl pick and a three-time All-Pro who is well-respected around the NFL.
Hillis had one productive season in Cleveland, and the fans don't seem to miss him. He rushed for 587 yards in 10 games in 2011 after his breakout 2010 in which he posted 1,177 yards and 11 touchdowns.
Thomas actually was fairly respectful with his criticism of Hillis. Thomas called the situation toxic and said Hillis was more concerned with his contract than helping the Browns win. Hillis started the name-calling.
