The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are really serious about getting the band back together. Thus far this offseason, the team has made it a priority to bring back the majority of the guys who helped the team take down the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl earlier this winter. Well, you can add one more to the list.

On Friday morning, it's been announced that running back Leonard Fournette, aka Lombardi Lenny, has re-signed with the team on a one-year deal.

Fournette came up huge for Tampa Bay in the postseason. In the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers, he rushed the ball 12 times for 55 yards and a touchdown, while also adding five receptions.

Then in the Super Bowl win over the Chiefs, he recorded 16 carries for 89 yards and a score. It goes without saying, be he surely deserved a new contract from the team and they've wisely given him one.
