Running back Peyton Hillis will re-sign with the New York Giants on a two-year deal, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.

Vacchiano cites a source as saying the former 1,000-yard rusher will probably sign Tuesday. The Giants picked him up in October last season after he was released by the Chiefs.
