Headline NFL Players Sports Agents

On To The Next One: Lex Hilliard

Yesterday, I received word that Miami Dolphins running back/full back Lex Hilliard parted ways with former Miami Dolphin and current NFLPA Contract Advisor, Marc Lillibridge.  Hilliard has signed with Miami, Florida-based Drew Rosenhaus.

Lex Hilliard was a 6th round draft pick in 2008, selected by the Miami Dolphins with the 204th overall pick.  He played his college ball at Montana before joining the professional ranks.  Hilliard is not known for putting up big stats, but more so as a back that can pick up small yards, block, and contribute on special teams.  He is currently a restricted free agent.
