GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers have perhaps their deepest running back group than in any time during coach Mike McCarthy’s tenure, but they had room for at least one more.
Hill, a former Division II standout at Missouri Western, first joined the Packers on Sept. 2 as a member of their practice squad after the San Diego Chargers released him at the end of the preseason. He was promoted to the roster on Sept. 30 after injuries to James Starks and John Kuhn. He appeared in two games but was released on Oct. 18. Four days later, the Packers re-signed him to their practice squad.
The Buccaneers signed him off the Packers’ practice squad on Nov. 13, and he played in six games with nine carries for 23 years.
They also re-signed safety Chris Banjo, an exclusive rights free agent who made the Packers’ roster coming out of training camp last season.
