The Facts: The Bucs have signed Hillis to a one-year contract at the veteran minimum.
Diehards Line:Hillis adds some muscle to a depth chart that was weakened when LaGarrette Blount was traded to the New England Patriots during the 2013 NFL Draft. The best option behind Doug Martin had been Brian Leonard. Other options include Mike James, Michael Smith and track star Jeff Demps. ... Hillis had little impact last season with the Kansas City Chiefs, though he posted a 100-yard game in Week 16 last December and is still just 27. That said, the Bucs interest in Hillis shouldn't necessarily be shared by you.
