PHOTOS: FSU Had A Special Guest At Their Peach Bowl Practice

Devonta Freeman is one of the best running backs in Florida State history and one of the best running backs in the NFL – today, he served as a bit of inspiration to his former team. Freeman took a break from his job on the field with the Atlanta Falcons to visit the Seminoles during their practice before the Peach Bowl. The running back was one of the best at Florida State and...

Quiet but versatile Powell providing pop to Jets offense

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) Bilal Powell speaks barely above a whisper at times, as soft-spoken a player there might be in the NFL. It's not a knock on the New York Jets running back. He's just not the loud, look-at-me type. Powell is a humble, religious guy who usually deflects attention from himself. So, when he celebrated his 25-yard touchdown catch against the Giants last Sunday...

That's Evans next to Randy Moss, as well as Pryor, Josh Gordon and Leon Washington...

Who Will Emerge as Titans Returners in 2015?

2014 was a down year for the Tennessee Titans return game. There was plenty of hope going into the season with veteran special teams ace Leon Washington returning for a second season, and the addition of electric punt returner Dexter McCluster.After playing five games with the Titans in 2013, which saw Washington average 30.1 yards per return and a long of 95 yards, Washington nearly...

Titans looking for new kick-returner

With Leon Washington no longer with the Tennessee Titans, the team is in the market for someone to handle kick returns in 2015. On Wednesday, head coach Ken Whisenhunt said the team has three candidates in mind to replace Washington. Wide receiver Jacoby Ford and running backs Dexter McCluster and Antonio Andrews will compete for the job in training camp. "We'll look at a lot of...

Who Returns Punts For The Seattle Seahawks In 2015

Punt Return Gig Is Wide Open One area I think the Seattle Seahawks regressed in 2014 was on special teams, specifically on punt returns.  When Golden Tate left for greener pastures and greener wallets in Detroit the Seahawks really never came up with a good solution to replace Tate returning punts. Before Tate, it was Leon Washington, who might be the best returner the Seahawks...

A Tiered Look at the Running Back Options for the Titans

It's pretty clear that the Titans need an upgrade a running back. The combination of Shonn Greene, Bishop Sankey, Dexter McCluster and Leon Washington simply did not get the job done last season. As a team, the Titans ranked just 26th in total rushing yards, accumulating 1,447 yards on the ground.With youth at quarterback, consistency within the run game is a must. Whether it's Zach...

Top Remaining Free Agents for New York Jets

A week of furious activity for the New York Jets was probably completed last night, as the Jets finalized a deal with former Chargers safety Marcus Gilchrist. They now have an estimated $10-12 million of cap space left, per Jason at OverTheCap.com. By my estimation, the Jets entered the off-season with these holes to fill… The Jets still need a blocking tight end, another wide...

Predicting the Future for the Titans Key Free Agents

View image | gettyimages.com The Tennessee Titans face a very important off season for the franchise. The Titans are coming off their worse season since moving to Nashville and have been very mediocre since their 13-3 record in 2008. The Titans have already made some off season moves, most notably hiring legendary coach Dick Lebeau. It is no secret that many players admire Lebeau...

2015 Tennessee Titans offseason positional analysis: RB

After our customary first stop at quarterback, our next stop as we travel around the Tennessee Titans position by position heading into the 2015 offseason is a look at the running back position. For the previous five seasons, the story of the Titans at running back was simple: it was the story of Chris Johnson. 2014 brought his departure and the change to a committee. Instead of...

Catching Up With James Coleman: From Short Yardage Specialist to Performance Specialist

From 2002-05, there was no player Florida State looked to more often in short yardage situations than Tallahassee native and fullback James Coleman. Coleman finished his Florida State career with just a 2.6 yards-per-carry average, but scored seven touchdowns over his final two seasons including the lone Seminole touchdown in a 10-7 victory over Miami on Labor Day in 2005 to snap...

My predicted Titans RB usage against the Titans’ actual running back usage

So, back before the regular season began, I wrote a bunch of things about the Tennessee Titans. Some of them ended up being relatively close to accurate. Others were quite inaccurate. Since it turned into a theme of sorts, I thought today I would look at my predictions for how the Titans would use their running backs versus how they actually did use their running backs. I don’t...

By any measure, Titans have struggled to run ball

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Ground it down to any statistic, and the Tennessee Titans haven't been able to run the ball well at all this season. They are assured of finishing without a 1,000-yard rusher for the first time since 2005. They rank 28th in the NFL, averaging only 87 yards a game, and are 23rd averaging 3.9 yards per carry.

Leon Washington at one time was the guy you wanted to watch every time he got his hands on the ball, but that's not the case so much anymore.

Titans keep draft position intact by blowing lead to Jaguars, lose 21-13

It was a dog of a game, subjected to national ridicule and promoted as little as any prime time game in recent memory. It ended up being one of the most competitive Thursday Night Football games of the season, within one score for most of the game and in some doubt until the final play, when the Titans failed to force overtime. In the end, the Jaguars walked away with a 21-13 victory...
