The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed free agent running back/fullback Peyton Hillis to a one-year deal, a source told Sports Talk Florida.

Yesterday Sports Talk Florida reported that Hillis had a workout scheduled with the Buccaneers today. Hillis performed well enough to earn a spot in training camp, which opens tomorrow.

Hillis most recently served as a backup to Jamal Charles in Kansas City and is expected to do the same behind Doug Martin in Tampa, as well as helping the team in short yardage situations.
