BALTIMORE, MD - DECEMBER 24: Peyton Hillis #40 of the Cleveland Browns looks on from the sidelines during the closing moments of the Browns 20-14 loss to the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium on December 24, 2011 in Baltimore, Maryland. (Photo by Rob Carr/Getty Images)
The first couple of hours of free agency went by and I saw more than a few Kansas City Chiefs fans getting a little anxious. Don't worry, though. The Chiefs have apparently been looking for a bigger back to pair with Jamaal Charles.
Hillis of course was with the Cleveland Browns last year (and on the cover of Madden). He had a down year and there were some reported issues as he sought a new contract. But he fits the mold of a bigger back so KC will take a look at him.
Tolbert is really the one I like. He's coming from the San Diego Chargers -- division rivals are always nice -- and fits the profile of a bigger back. He's also a threat to catch the ball outta the backfield with over 50 receptions last season. He'd be a good fit.
