Running back Bobby Rainey has signed his one-year contract offer from the Buccaneers, the club said Friday afternoon.

A restricted free agent, Rainey was tendered a one-year, $1.542 million contract.

The 27-year-old Rainey has been one of the Buccaneers’ reserve tailbacks over the last two seasons. He rushed for 406 yards and racked up 315 yards receiving for Tampa Bay in 2014, appearing in 15 games (five starts). Rainey previously had stints with Baltimore and Cleveland.

Doug Martin, Charles Sims, Mike James and Rainey are the top veteran options in the backfield for Tampa Bay. A three-year starter, Martin has struggled to regain top form after a promising rookie season.
