Bucs Release Peyton HillisSeptember 21st, 2013
On the day prior to playing Bill Belicheat and the New England Patriots, the Bucs released running back Peyton Hills, per Jenna Laine of SportsTalkFlorida.com.
Hillis had yet to take a handoff this season. With Doug Martin the workhorse and Erik Lorig back in action, Hillis, apparently, became expendable.
This just increases, in Joe’s eyes, the need to keep Martin on a pitch count. If Martin goes down or gets burned out, this team is in a world of trouble.
