Peyton Hillis, Bucs agree to terms on one-year deal

Per Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and free-agent running back Peyton Hillis have agreed to terms on a one-year deal.

Since his breakout season (1,654 yards from scrimmage and 13 TDs), Hillis has now played for three different clubs in as many seasons: Browns (2011), Chiefs (2012) and Bucs (2013).

Provided he makes the final 53-man roster, that is.

In the past two seasons, Hillis has carried the ball 246 times for 896 yards (3.6 yards per carry) and four touchdowns.

Hillis will compete for the No. 2 spot behind Doug Martin, who ranked second in the NFL in yards from scrimmage (1,926 yards) last year. Martin rushed for the second-highest total in franchise history behind James Wilder.

The other running backs on the roster include Brian Leonard, Mike James and Michael Smith.
