New York Giants running back, Peyton Hillis, is on his fifth agency.  That figure is staggering considering he has played just six NFL seasons.

At Rosenhaus Sports, the Conway, Ark. native will be co-represented by NFL Certified Contract Advisor, Jason Katz and Michael Katz, according to Sports Business Journal’s Liz Mullen.  Marc Lillibridge of Pro Football Syndicate formerly represented Hillis.

Hillis has had only one season where he eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark (2010).  In his third NFL season, he ran for 1,177 yards and 11 touchdowns with the Cleveland Browns.  After being selected for the cover of Madden NFL ’12, Hillis had a sub-par 2011-12 season in which he tallied fewer than 600 yards on the ground and three touchdowns.  Unfortunately, his setback season led him to be associated with the dreaded Madden Curse.
