Jacquizz Rodgers, who led the Buccaneers in rushing in 2016 and proved he could handle a feature-back workload, agreed to a new deal with the Bucs on Thursday at the start of free agency.
Rodgers has seen at least 12 carries in seven games over the past four years. In those games, he averaged 97 total yards and 0.57 TD on 22.2 touches (4.25 YPC). Due to his size (5-7, 190 lbs), Rodgers is not considered an every-down back, but he’s certainly capable of carrying the load when called upon. Still only 27, Rodgers should have plenty of tread left on his tires. His value is tied to Doug Martin's status as the team's starter.
