The Titans have agreed to sign running back Jeremy McNichols, as Tom Pelissero of NFL.com tweets. Even though McNichols is a late addition, he figures to get a real chance to make the cut as one of Derrick Henry‘s backups.
McNichols, 24, entered the league as a fifth-round pick of the Bucs in 2017. He didn’t stay in Tampa for long and wound up touring a wide chunk of the NFL. In the last few years, McNichols has signed deals with the 49ers, Colts, Broncos, Titans, and Jaguars. The Jaguars wound up giving McNichols his first live action last year, but the Titans were impressed with the speedster’s work in the preseason.
The Titans have been keeping their eyes peeled for pickups throughout the month, including recent workouts with quarterbacks Trevor Siemian and DeShone Kizer. They’ve since inked Siemian to replace seventh-round rookie Cole McDonald on the depth chart behind Ryan Tannehill and Logan Woodside.
