Hillis, 26, was expected to continue to break out in 2011 after his strong 2010 campaign (270 rushes for 1,177 yards and 11 touchdowns), but battled injuries all season long and only appeared in 10 games for Cleveland, rushing for just 587 yards and three touchdowns.

Update (7:11 p.m.): Schefter reports that the deal is for one year and worth $3 million. [tweet https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter/status/180067704387022848 align='center']
