The Cleveland Browns hopes to have a tandem in the backfield next season.

New Browns head coach Pat Shurmur likes the idea of Peyton Hillis and Montario Hardesty in the backfield at the same time. Hardesty is recovering from ACL surgery, which caused him to miss last season.

Shurmur’s will be using a West Coast offense in Cleveland and the offensive scheme will be based on the two backs playing together. He hopes that this scheme will keep both running backs fresh going into the latter part of the season.

Hillis is expected to be the Browns starting running back, with Hardesty as a complement back.
