Bucs Acquire RB Bennett

Kansas City Chiefs' Michael Bennett runs past Chicago Bears' Darwin Walker (99) and Ricky Manning (24)

The NFL trade deadline expired yesterday and the Buccaneers got themselves a much needed running back. The team acquired Michael Bennett from the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for a future draft pick in 2008 and 2009.  The 29-year-old Bennett served as Larry Johnson’s backup and played sparingly.  He’s a former first round pick of the Minnesota Vikings.  His best season came back in 2002 when he rushed for 1,296 yards and five touchdowns.  The Bucs have rushed for a combined 47 yards the last two games.  The team also released running back Lionel Gates and signed running back Ken Darby to the practice squad.
