What would you give up for Hillis. He could be a great fit for the rest of the season subbing in for Best. I though Williams would be that big back I guess he's not ready

Williams has done good. Against Dallas he really sealed the game for us late. Didn't really need him Monday with best exploding.

He wants a fat new contract. And for that reason, I want no part of him. RB is one position where I don't think it is wise to invest huge long-term dollars.

I'm not interested in Hillis because he would most likely be a one year rental player. With Leshoure coming back next year, I can't see the Lions giving Hillis the contract that he wants, so he would leave via FA. Combine that with what the Browns would probably be asking for him, and it simply isn't worth it IMO.

yes, of course he would just be a one year rental

Any player that doesn't play because his agent advised him not to isn't exactly the kind of guy I would want around. If you're going to hold out, then hold out, but don't allow the team to count on you all week and then not play. There are more peoples futures at stake than just your own. I realize he has to protect his future, blah blah blah, but that was a d!ck move if you ask me. He let his team down and showed his rectum.

I agree completely, I'd take him at a bargain/rental rate for the rest of the season if the Browns are willing to part with him. I think he would be a very good upgrade for our offense, but I wouldn't want him as a long-term option.

If Hillis wants a big payday, why the hell would he take a 1 year deal? It makes no sense. Move on. This will never, ever happen.

Um, you don't follow the news on Hillis do you? He's having an MRI on his hamstring. Plus, he hasn't done much at all this year, or during the 2nd half of last year. Look at his production this year. His rushing yds have been:

57, 94, 46, and 14. He has 2 TDs. Plus he's missed one game with illness (and is alleged to have skipped that game to try to force the team to give him a new contract or trade him). But regardless of that, let's look at his production last year. His yards were:

41, 35, 144, 102, 28, 41, 69, 184, 82, 48, 131, 57, 108, 59, 35, 14.

For me, that looks like 3 big games, 2 good games, and the rest nothing special. He also didn't score a TD in the last 5 games of the year.

I'll stand by my contention that he's nothing special. Plus there's no good reason he'd come to Detroit. The Lions aren't going to contend for a Super Bowl this year. They still have too many holes.

I'd rather go after Tashard Choice. It's been said the Cowboys are willing to deal him.
