NFL Free Agency 2012: Browns Could Lose Peyton Hillis

Since coming to the Cleveland Browns in 2010, running back Peyton Hillis has been one of the few standout offensive weapons in the team's arsenal. But with free agency approaching, Hillis could very well depart for greener pastures, or perhaps a team better positioned to win in the short term.

Mike Freeman of CBS Sports reports that the Browns organization is split on what to do about their star running back.

The Cleveland Browns remain uncertain exactly how to handle running back Peyton Hillis. Some in the organization want to try and keep him, while others want to part ways and draft Alabama's Trent Richardson. I think the draft option will win out, but no one knows for certain just yet.

The draft route would certainly be the cheaper option for the Browns, but only time will tell what the team decides to do.
