Buccaneers Bring Barber Back On One Year Deal

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have reached an agreement with RB Peyton Barber

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

According to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, the Buccaneers have reached a one year agreement with running back Peyton Barber;

The undrafted running back has been the feature guy for the Bucs the last two seasons and ran well when given the opportunity. Unfortunately, Koetter would abandon the run game or sit him for stretches in exchange for Jacquizz Rodgers, limiting his touches.

New head coach Bruce Arians has been extremely vocal in his support of Barber and seemed genuinely excited to work with him. He also believes the staff can get Ronald Jones going, giving the Buccaneers a reliable one-two punch.
