The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed a Florida State fan favorite.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed their third fullback, adding former Florida State running back/fullback Lonnie Pryor to the roster, Jenna Laine reports. Pryor went undrafted this year and has spent the season so far on the Jaguars' practice squad. Pryor will take the roster spot of Michael Adams, who was placed on injured reserve yesterday.

Pryor was more than just a fullback at Florida State, however. He rushed for 723 yards on 123 career carries and added 41 catches for 379 yards. Pryor should be a special teams standout and could play an H-back-like role on offense for the Bucs, who have used fullbacks Erik Lorig and Spencer Larsen in similar ways this year. According to Alfie of Big Cat Country, Pryor should be able to contribute in several ways.

The Bucs are probably the only team in the NFL to have three fullbacks on their roster, as most teams don't even have one fullback.
