The Tennessee Titans have signed another player after a tryout, and this time, it’s a familiar face for Titans fans. The Titans also waived two players.
The Tennessee Titans held a tryout late last week, and with that came an intriguing question. Will the Titans cut another player and replace them with a player from their tryout.
It turns out that is no longer a question, and it has turned into a statement as the Titans added to their running back depth while also waiving two players.
Running back Cameron Scarlett and linebacker Khaylan Kearse-Thomas’ time with the Titans has come to an end for now as they were both waived to make a little extra room for running back Jeremy McNichols.
McNichols tried out for the Titans during the Friday tryout and seemed to impress coaches enough to make his return to the Titans. He was on the Titans’ preseason roster last season before being cut.
He was a fifth-round pick in 2017 and has been around the block in his few years in the league. Aside from being drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, McNichols has also spent time with the Bears, Broncos, Colts, Jaguars, and 49ers along with the Titans.
McNichols doesn’t have the best stats in the league with a total of four rushing yards to his name in the five games he’s appeared in. On the bright side, it’s almost one yard per game. How is that a good thing? He’s almost consistent.
If he wants to appear during meaningful minutes of an NFL game in a Titans uniform, then he has some work to do. Titans rookie running back Darrynton Evans has missed practices recently, which is why the Titans decided to sign McNichols.
We’re getting close to the start of the NFL season as we near the beginning of September, so the Titans are going to need to figure out their running back situation sooner rather than later so everyone can be on the same page when Week 1 rolls around.
