Quayvon Hicks hasn’t played in a game since his career at Georgia ended in 2015, but he’ll be looking to change that soon. The former Bulldogs fullback was signed to a futures contract by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Tuesday after spending the 2016 season recovering from an ACL injury.

Hicks suffered the ACL injury in Dec. 2015 prior to his final game at Georgia. The 6-foot-1, 255-pound fullback was signed as an undrafted rookie by the Tennessee Titans last spring, but failed a physical. He hadn’t been with an NFL team since then, prior to signing with the Bucs.
Hicks had 23 carries for 166 yards and 12 catches for 132 yards during his four-year career with the Bulldogs, while also helping to block for standout running back Todd Gurley.
The Buccaneers went most of the 2016 season without a traditional fullback on their roster, so Hicks may have the opportunity in the future to help out their offense.
