Buccaneers To Sign Jacquizz Rodgers

The Buccaneers will sign running back Jacquizz Rodgers to a one-year deal today, according to Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times (Twitter link). Rodgers auditioned for Tampa Bay last week. Jacquizz Rodgers (Vertical)

Rodgers, 26, is typically regarded as a strong pass protector (and therefore a solid third down back), and could provide some depth behind Doug Martin and Charles Sims. Rodgers also offers familiarity with Tampa head coach Dirk Koetter thanks to his time in Atlanta.

Rodgers totaled 41 yards on 14 carries for Chicago last season. He spent 2014 in Atlanta and rushed for over 1,100 yards and five touchdowns. In March, he re-signed with the Bears but he did not make the cut when the team trimmed down to 53.

    I’m guessing it is supposed to say Rodgers rushed for over 1,100 yards in his 4 seasons in ATL, not solely in 2014.
