Josh Adams, RB
Hopefully the whiplash from big names to a depth player didn’t throw you too much because here we are.
Right now the Eagles have seven running backs on the depth charter after trading for Jordan Howard and drafting Myles Sanders in the 2nd round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
Meanwhile, the Titans are looking for running back help long term and it would help if it was cheap to help facilitate moves like I mentioned above. A late round pick swap for a back like Adams would be really interesting.

If the Titans could get him in the building, check him out at camp and during the preseason, then extend him for cheap they could at least have their RB3 for 2019 and RB2 for 2020 set up.
Adams was an UDFA out of Notre Dame, but he is exactly what the Tennessee Titans need. He is a no-nonsense, one-cut running back who gets downhill quickly, which is what many people mistakenly think Derrick Henry is.
If you are running a ZBS to the left, Adams is going to quickly read and get downhill where he sees the hole. Derrick Henry may string a play along for an extra few steps to the left or right or quickly bounce an inside play outside if he sees something.
You won’t get the homerun threat that you have in Henry, but if you need someone to get positive yards while Henry takes a breather then Adams is your guy.
