The Denver Broncos have re-signed running back Ronnie Hillman, the team announced Tuesday. 

The terms of the contract have not yet been announced, although Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports it is a one-year, $2 million deal.

Hillman was Denver’s leading rusher last season, tallying 863 yards and seven touchdowns. However, he ended up losing the starting job to C.J. Anderson down the stretch, carrying the ball just five times in Super Bowl 50.
