Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sign RB Peyton Hillis

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and RB Peyton Hillis have agreed to a one-year deal today. Hillis will provide some depth to the Buccaneers roster. The running back group was thin behind Doug Martin, so the signing is much needed help.

Hillis can give Doug Martin a breather here and there and likely will not steal too many carries. Hillis can be given some opportunities for short yardage situations.

I am sure that there will be a ton of Mike Alstott comparisons out in Tampa. He has the same running style and is white. If Hillis were able to line up at fullback for Tampa Bay, then the comparisons would go on non-stop throughout the season.
