  • Tyjae Spears Signs Rookie Contract

    Tennessee Titans running back Tyjae Spears has signed his rookie contract with the organization. That means, the 22-year-old is locked in a four-year deal with the team after being taken in the third round of this year's NFL Draft. The expectation is that Spears is going to compete for the third-down spot on the roster. Veteran back Derrick Henry is going to be the workhorse and get a majority of the carries. However, Hassan Haskins and Spears should be able to get involved as well. There might not be much fantasy value for Haskins right away, but he's expected to be the back of the future in Tennessee.

  • Tyjae Spears Says He's Fully Healthy

    Tennessee Titans running back Tyjae Spears had plenty of question marks during the pre-draft process about his knee injuries, but he has been a full participant in rookie mini-camp and said "I was out there. I did everything. So, I feel perfectly fine. Nothing wrong with me. I'm healthy." The Tulane product has no ACL in one of his knees and is reportedly dealing with arthritis. However, the 21-year-old still became a third-round pick and is expected to contribute to the Titans' offense early in his career. The 29-year-old Derrick Henry may need a change of pace back to ease some of his workload at this point in his career, so Spears could carve out a role as a third-down back and breather back sharing the backfield with the former 2,000-yard rusher. Spears could see a shortened career due to his knee troubles, but his immediate production should not be a concern.

    The Tennessee Titans selected running back Tyjae Spears out of Tulane with the No. 81 overall pick in the third round of the 2023 NFL draft on Friday night. There were rumors the team might trade away Derrick Henry, which have proven false thus far. However, with only Hassan Haskins behind him, they now possess more depth should they decide to make a move. It could also prepare them for life without Henry, who is 29 years old and has logged a lot of carries in his career. In the meantime, Spears will look to carve out a role as a receiver and should become the primary backup.

    A desire to for an even more run-oriented offense served as one of the disagreements between Ron Rivera and since-ousted OC Scott Turner last season. The Commanders ranked fourth in the NFL in rushing attempts in 2022 and stood down in free agency, despite many starter-caliber backs being available at low rates. Rivera still wants […]
