|Sankey "odds-on" favorite to start Week 1 -- Mon Jul 20 5:00 pm --|
The Tennessean breaks down the Titans' RB depth chart
|Bishop Sankey is the odds-on favorite to be the starter when the season gets underway, simply because he has a yearís experience and a full offseason under his belt. Assuming thatís the case, who backs him up? Dexter McCluster is a possibility, but heís more of a situational player, not a workhorse. David Cobb is a draft pick and a versatile player, but he also missed much of the offseason with a hamstring injury. Antonio Andrews will as usual be an underdog, but he showed enough promise in the preseason and practices of 2014 that he will be given a good, long look. (Tennessean)|
FF Today's Take: Last season was a massive disappointment for Sankey, who performed well below the standard expected of the first running back drafted in 2014. Tennessee did him no favors either, though, providing him with shoddy run-blocking and pulling him at seemingly every opportunity for McCluster and Shonn Greene. Having a run threat like Marcus Mariota at quarterback and more spread concepts should help Sankey, who thrived in such an offense in college.
|Titans release RB Shonn Greene -- Tue Jun 16 9:32 am --|
Scheduled to make $3.25 million
|The Titans plan to release running back Shonn Greene this morning, according to sources familiar with the situation.
Greene, who signed a three-year, $10 million contract in 2013, was scheduled to make $3.25 million in the final year of his contract this year.
FF Today's Take: The Titans have drafted two running backs in the last two years. Bishop Sankey and David Cobb (rookie) will handle the bulk of the carries in 2015. Greene had back-to-back 1000-yard rushing seasons with the Jets but never found his footing in Tennessee.
