 TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -Tampa Bay acquired running back Michael Bennett from the Kansas City Chiefs on Tuesday, hoping he helps them compensate for the loss of injured tailbacks Carnell ``Cadillac'' Williams and Michael Pittman.
Bennett, a first-round draft pick of the Minnesota Vikings in 2001, has rushed for 3,426 yards and 12 touchdowns in seven NFL seasons. He also has 145 career receptions for 1,164 yards and five TDs.
``We believe that the addition of Michael Bennett will strengthen our running back position,'' Bucs general manager Bruce Allen said in a statement.
Tampa Bay gives up an undisclosed draft pick for Bennett.
The 5-for-9, 207-pound Bennett was a Pro Bowl selection in 2002 with the Vikings, but injuries have prevented him from realizing his potential as a pro. He played sparingly for the Chiefs as a backup to Larry Johnson.
Tampa Bay lost Williams, the 2005 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, with a season-ending knee injury three weeks ago. Pittman took over as the starter, but was carted off the field two weeks ago with a high ankle sprain that could sideline him up to two months.
