NASHVILLE – The Titans have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with running back/fullback Khari Blasingame.
Blasingame, who played at Vanderbilt, was scheduled to be an exclusive rights free agent next month.
Blasingame played in 15 games for the Titans in 2020, with seven starts. He also caught four passes for 39 yards in 2020, while also tying for the team lead in special teams tackles twice in 2020 (vs. Colts, vs. Browns).
Blasingame also played a key role as a blocker in front of running back Derrick Henry, who led the NFL with 2,027 rushing yards and 17 touchdowns in 2020.
The Titans initially signed Blasingame off the Minnesota Vikings' practice squad during the 2019 season to provide depth in the backfield and on special teams. Blasingame originally signed with the Vikings as a rookie free agent following the 2019 NFL Draft and spent the first 10 weeks of his rookie campaign on the team's practice squad.
A 6-foot, 233-pounder, Blasingame amassed 997 rushing yards and 15 rushing scores as well as 35 catches for 380 yards and two receiving touchdowns during his collegiate career at Vanderbilt.
