Titans now know No. 2 and No. 3 RBs

By Paul Kuharsky

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- We know who the Titans' No. 2 running back is going to be in 2014. We know who’s in line to be the No. 3 back.

While the question lingers about the future of longtime lead back Chris Johnson because of his pricey contract, the Titans signed Shonn Greene a year ago. And per Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean, they have agreed to a one-year deal with Jackie Battle, who was the third back and a key special-teamer in 2013.

In the past three years, Battle said he didn’t get a deal until late, so he’s excited to know early on where he is going to be.

He carried the ball more than the team anticipated last season because Greene missed extended time after suffering a knee injury in the opener that required surgery.

Bigger news is to come at the position, of course.
