T.J. Yeldon, RB
The Tennessee Titans running back depth chart is really just two names right now and one of them has never taken snaps in the NFL.
I’m not down on Darrynton Evans, but I think it is a big advantage to have a veteran in place who already knows how to play on passing downs both as a receiver and as a blocker. Look at some comparisons Yeldon has as a receiver at the running back position since entering the NFL:
David Johnson: 62 games played, 208 receptions (3.4 rec/game)
Melvin Gordon: 67 games played, 224 receptions (3.3 rec/game)
T.J. Yeldon: 57 games played, 184 receptions (3.2 rec/game)
Todd Gurley: 73 games played, 218 receptions (3.0 rec/game)
Yeldon was signed by the Bills to a two-year deal before the 2019 NFL Draft and since then, Buffalo has used two 3rd round picks on running backs in Devin Singletary and Zack Moss, and they are both good receivers.
The Bills get to add about $1.5 million to their cap space and the Tennessee Titans get another Alabama Crimson Tide RB in the backfield, which has obviously worked out for them so far.
The Buffalo Bills get to put their young guys in a good position getting reps where they thrive, and the Titans get a perfect fit as a backup who can help Darrynton Evans develop on what is basically a one-year deal.
