Dion Lewis to sign with Tennessee Titans

Dion Lewis to sign with Tennessee Titans

A few hours cornerback Malcolm Butler reportedly agreed to a contract with the Tennessee Titans, running back Dion Lewis did so, as well, according to multiple reports.

ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the news.

"The Jets, Titans and Colts are also in play for Lewis, sources said, while I can't help but wonder if the Bucs, Browns and Raiders will get involved when the market opens this week", La Canfora writes. The 5'8 tailback was part of a solid lineage of NFL-bound tailbacks at the University of Pittsburgh, but struggled to make an impact after being selected in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL Draft. Though injuries limited him to just 14 regular season games in his first two seasons in Foxborough, Lewis's impact as a dynamic threat out of the backfield helped keep New England atop the National Football League hierarchy.

Virginia's DeAndre Hunter to Miss NCAA Tournament After Suffering Wrist Injury
With Hunter out, U.Va. will likely rely even more on key bench players Nigel Johnson at guard and Mamadi Diakite at forward. Hunter suffered a broken left wrist during the Cavaliers' run at the conference tournament in Brooklyn last week.

With the Patriots in 2017, Lewis carried the ball 180 times for 896 rushing yards and six touchdowns. Lewis is one of the best dual-threat backs in the league, capable of breaking tackles up the middle, beating defenders to the edge, and making plays in the passing game.

Lewis would theoretically fill the 3rd down running back and "scat-back" niche in new head coach Frank Reich's offense, which utilized Wendell Smallwood, Corey Clement, and Darren Sproles in similar capacities over the past two seasons with the Eagles.

The Patriots have James White, Mike Gillislee, and Brandon Bolden at running back.
