Titans sign Bishop Sankey

Bishop Sankey AP

We’re down to 12 unsigned picks from the 2014 draft.

Running back Bishop Sankey is the latest player to cross over to the ranks of the signed with the Titans announcing that he has agreed to a four-year deal with the team. Sankey was a second-round pick last month and first-round tackle Taylor Lewan is the only member of the team’s draft class still without a contract.

Sankey was the first running back selected in this year’s draft after running for 3,496 yards and 37 touchdowns during his career at Washington. Sankey should have a good shot at moving ahead of Shonn Greene in the pecking order at running back with the Titans, although he didn’t get much of a chance to make an impression this offseason thanks to NFL rules that bar rookies from practicing with their teams under most circumstances until their schools have completed their academic years.

Greene has also been sidelined by a knee injury, though, so it’s not like the veteran has locked things down heading into camp.

    It would be kinda cool to see the Titans blow it up this year with the UW backfield.

    Sankey is a very determined and grossly under rated back. Watch for a rookie of the year attempt. I say 225 carries for 960yds and 48 catches for another 260 yds and 7 TDs.

    I agree, but I have more hope for Sankey than Locker. Wish he’d break out, but I just don’t see it. Seems everytime Locker takes a step forward he gets hurt.
