The Titans tried out Larry Johnson and others this week, perhaps because the team feels like it could use a bruising running back to pair with Chris Johnson.
Titans coach Jeff Fisher knows better than anyone he had the right go on his roster earlier in the season, but let him slip away. Fisher admitted Wednesday he regrets waiving LeGarrette Blount “every day.”
“I thought we could get him to the practice squad, get him on practice squad, knowing that when and if there was any kind of interest, we could bring him back to the active roster,” Fisher said via Terry McCormick of TitansInsider.com. “That didn’t happen, but I’m very, very happy for him.”
Blount landed in Tampa, where he’s put up 329 rushing yards and three scores in the last three weeks. His short-yardage abilities are especially impressive.
While the Titans prepare for Houston this week, Blount faces another NFL team that he has a connection to. Blount originally agreed to terms with the 49ers, but then changed his mind and wound up in Tennessee.
