Tennessee Titans: 5 under-the-radar free agency targets
This is a name most casual fans probably forgot about.
Theo Riddick had a decent 2018 season with the Lions, grabbing 61 receptions (as a running back) for 384 yards. Riddick doesn’t bring much on the ground as he only rushed 40 times for 171 yards in 2018. Riddick’s entire 2019 season was lost due to a shoulder injury
However, when Derrick Henry is ahead of you, you won’t be expected to run all that much.
Dion Lewis has most likely played his last game as a Titan, as he has not lived up to his contract, and the Titans could earn valuable cap space by cutting him.
Riddick is a receiving back, who is better at that job than Dion Lewis, and should be much cheaper coming off a serious injury.
If the Broncos opt to let Riddick walk, I would love to see him in Nashville behind Henry. A quick, shifty receiving back is the perfect complement to a bruiser like Henry. Maybe Riddick could be what Dion was supposed to be.
