NASHVILLE – The Titans are bringing a familiar face back to the backfield.
On Wednesday, the team agreed to terms with running back Jeremy McNichols.
Also, the Titans also waived running back Cameron Scarlett and linebacker Khaylan Kearse-Thomas.
McNichols played in the 2019 preseason with the Titans, and he rushed for 108 yards on 26 carries. He also scored a touchdown on a 15-yard completion when he flipped into the end zone. A fifth-round pick by Tampa Bay in the 2017 NFL Draft out of Boise State, McNichols has also spent time with the Jaguars, Bears, Broncos, Colts, and 49ers.
McNichols also spent time on Tennessee's practice squad during the 2018 season.
In the NFL, McNichols has played in five games and registered four carries for eight yards. In 34 games for Boise State, he totaled 3,205 rushing yards and 44 touchdowns.
The Titans have been thin at running back in recent practices. Rookie Darrynton Evans hasn't practice since suffering a setback in last Friday's practice at Nissan Stadium, and Senorise Perry has missed practice time in recent days as well. As a result, fullback Khari Blasingame has gotten extra work at running back behind starter Derrick Henry.
