The Cleveland Browns have decided to trade off Terrance West after only one season. Running back West was acquired by the Tennessee Titans in exchange for a conditional 2016 draft pick in a deal with the Cleveland Browns. The Titans’ management announced the condition of the deal on Sunday. The deal couldn’t be finalized after long negotiations on Saturday.
The Titans are waiting for the rookie fifth rounder David Cobb to heal and join the action. West will have to compete with Antonio Andrews to earn a position of a starter.
The Titans have kept Cobb on injured reserve/recall with a calf muscle injury. He can return to practice after six weeks and will be match-fit after eight weeks.
Bishop Sankey spearheads Titans’ backfield and also includes Daniel McCluster. Fullback Jalston Fowler along with Andrews are also there in the line-up.
Sankey was the first running back chosen in 2014 draft, while West was sixth, being the third round pick of the Browns. He led the browns with 673 yards rushing, notched up four touchdowns in his rookie season.
While sorting out running backs last season, the Titans had West in for a visit. The Browns, on the other hand, now have two running backs in their 53-men roster after the trade.
