and Peyton Hillis' weird year continues.
First came the Madden cover for the bruising Cleveland Browns tailback. Then the curse, and its fallout: Contract questions; a bizarre strep-throat controversy in which is agent advised him to sit out a game; a long struggle with injury; reports of an intervention from teammates; and the overall question: Are the Browns done with him?
Now this, per The Plain Dealer: At the behest of Tony Pashos -- Hillis' teammate and fervent supporter of Republican Congressman Ron Paul's 2012 presidential candidacy -- Hillis plastered pro-Paul paraphernalia all over himself during Thursday's media session.
This isn't to mock Paul. We try not to get political here at Page 2. It's just not something you see in most NFL backfields. Even during debate season.
Then again, it does bring a new meaning to the term "running mate."
