The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are adding a former NFC South running back to their roster.
The Buccaneers will add tailback Jacquizz Rodgers, according to ESPN’s Jenna Laine.
Rodgers is in his sixth professional season after spending the 2015 season with the Chicago Bears. He rushed for 41 yards on 14 attempts last season and was released by the Bears earlier this month.
Rodgers spent his first four seasons with the Atlanta Falcons. His best season came in 2012, when he ran for 362 yards and caught 53 passes for 409 yards and 1 touchdown.
The Buccaneers have an established tandem in the backfield headlined by feature back Doug Martin and talented backup Charles Sims. Undrafted rookie Peyton Barber is listed as the third halfback on the team’s depth chart. Rodgers should add some veteran insurance in case of emergency, but likely won’t challenge for many touches.
