Packers sign RB Hill, re-sign S Banjo

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers have signed running back Michael Hill and re-signed safety Chris Banjo.

Hill appeared in two games for the Packers in 2013. The 5-foot-10, 210-pound second-year player out of Missouri Western State was signed by Tampa Bay from Green Bay's practice squad on Nov. 13 and played in six games for the Buccaneers.

Hill rushed for 23 yards on nine carries and caught two passes for 23 yards for Tampa Bay. He originally entered the NFL as a non-drafted free agent with San Diego.

Banjo appeared in all 16 Packers games with one start in 2013. He posted 15 tackles and a pass defensed, in addition to ranking second on the club with 10 coverage tackles on special teams.

The Packers announced the transactions Wednesday.
