Jason La Canfora reports that the Buccaneers have re-signed RB Jacquizz Rodgers to a two-year, $3.3 million contract with another $1 million available in incentives.
Rodgers, 27, is a former fifth-round pick of the Falcons back in 2011. After playing out his rookie deal with the Falcons, the Bears signed him to a contract in 2015.
Chicago elected to bring Rodgers back on a one-year deal back in March of last year, only to cut him loose at the start of the regular season. The Buccaneers signed him to a contract just a week later.
In 2016, Rodgers appeared in 10 games and ran for 560 yards on 128 carries (4.3 YPC) to go along with 13 receptions for 98 yards receiving and two total touchdowns.
