Posted:

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - The New York Giants have signed veteran running back Peyton Hillis.

Hillis, who fills a void in the backfield, is a six-year veteran with a 1,000-yard season on his resume. He has played for Denver, Cleveland and Kansas City, and has 2,470 yards and 21 touchdowns for his career.

Hillis has played in 65 games with 33 starts, and has also caught 111 passes for 867 yards. In 2010, he had a career season while playing for Cleveland. He ran for 1,177 yards, with 11 touchdowns, on 270 carries, and played in all 16 games. He is the only Brown to rush for 1,000 yards, catch 50 passes and score 10 touchdowns in a season.

"I'm coming in with an open heart and open mind," Hillis said, "and I'm looking to do whatever the coaching staff needs me to do to help this team win."

The Giants (0-6) will meet Minnesota (1-4) on Monday night.
