Packers sign former Chargers RB Michael Hill

The Packers, despite the fact that their running game seemed to be alright last year, apparently signed another Running Back yesterday, acquiring former Charger Michael Hill on a one-year contract, reports. Last season, Hill was on San Diego's roster for a couple weeks in the summer, before being cut on August 31 and never appearing in a regular season/meaningful game. 

Still, in his college career at Missouri Western State U, Hill set a school record with 4,969 rushing yards and 35 touchdowns, so yea, this signing could pay off. It probably won't, but, you know, it could.

Actually the Packers signed him to their practice squad mid-2013 season for some depth. I had forgotten about him, but he was signed by the Bucs and they actually gave him a few carries in a regular season game because they had lost a few backs to injury. He's a long shot but he's getting another chance.
