3 CFL players the Titans should sign before the New England Patriots can
By Will Lomas
Andrew Harris, RB
Harris may have one of the most unique player resumes I have ever seen. To sum it up quickly, he basically joined the CFL’s minor league team as a 19-year-old and he went on to win championships in three of his four years and break record along the way.

At this point, Harris is a 33-year-old running back and you would assume he is washed, right? Well, wrong because he just set his career-high in yards per attempt and won the Grey Cup MVP, while capping a three-year run as the CFL’s leading rusher.
He plays like a big back, but he is also a good receiver out of the backfield as well. I wouldn’t sign him to split carries with Derrick Henry, but I have talked about how it makes me nervous to see a rookie as the back trusted with pass protection. As excited as everyone is to see Darrynton Evans, why not have someone like Harris in the fold to be a passing down backup who can also give you something as a veteran runner with some power?
Under any other circumstances, I think Harris would stay in Canada, given that he is a CFL lifer. However, this may be the one chance he gives to the NFL and playing for the team that is built around running backs makes the most sense for his exposure, style and potential for success.
