Hill rushed for 23 yards on nine carries (2.6 avg.) and caught two passes for 23 yards (11.5 avg.) for Tampa Bay. He originally entered the NFL as a non-drafted free agent with San Diego and played in all four preseason contests for the Chargers in 2013.

Banjo appeared in all 16 games with one start in 2013. He posted 15 tackles (12 solo) and a pass defensed, in addition to ranking second on the club with 10 coverage tackles on special teams.
