Browns Players Hold Intervention for Peyton Hillis


I thought this only happened on Reality TV.

I have heard players trying to talk some sense into troubled teammates, but an intervention?


Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports reports that eight Browns veterans held an intervention-style meeting with Hillis on Wednesday to discuss the running back’s lousy attitude in an effort to improve his focus.

“I’ve never seen anything like it,” one Browns player told Silver. “Last year, Peyton was such a positive, inspirational force on our team – but now he’s like a different guy.

“It’s like he’s in a funk that he can’t get out of, and it’s killing us, because we really need him. And we’ve told him that. But we’re at the point where we just don’t know what to do.”

Hillis re-injured his hamstring this week and there are whispers that the Browns could release him soon.
