GM Tom Heckert tells ESPN Browns will try to re-sign RB Peyton Hillis, who's looking for new agent again

By Nate Ulrich Published: February 29, 2012

Browns running back Peyton Hillis is no longer represented by agent Kennard McGuire, a league source confirmed this afternoon for the Beacon Journal.

Josina Anderson of ESPN reported that Hillis and McGuire had an amicable split. Last year, Hillis parted ways with two other agents before hiring McGuire.

Hillis is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at 4 p.m. March 13. The source does not know who will become Hillis' new agent.

Browns General Manager Tom Heckert told Anderson the organization will still try to re-sign Hillis.

"If we can work something out with Peyton, we will," Heckert said. "Did he have some rough patches during the season? Yes. Were there stretches where things were blown out of proportion? Yes. Honestly, I feel like a lot of that was blown up in the media. Now, of course things will still come down to the money, but we'll just have to wait and see."
