Tony Pollard given new role by titans GM

Titans are certain that Tony Pollard and Tyjae Spears can take Derrick Henry’s spot.

In four of his final five seasons in Tennessee, Derrick Henry topped the league in carries. Now that he’s gone, his replacements will probably divide up those carries this season.

Hassan Haskins, Julius Chestnut, and Tyjae Spears all back with the Titans. They signed Tony Pollard, the Cowboys’ best running back from the previous campaign, in free agency. Dillon Johnson and Jabari Small, two undrafted free agents, complete the team.

It’s expected that Spears and Pollard will lead the way.
According to Jim Wyatt of the official website, Titans running backs coach Randy Jordan stated on Tuesday, “I am really excited to work with them.” “I saw Mr. T.P. quite a bit while I was in the NFC East. Thus, when we were able to acquire him, I was really excited. I love his skill set. In fact, I love the skill set of both [Pollard] and [Spears].

Since they can both catch the ball quite well out of the backfield, you don’t have to worry about either player counting touches on handoffs or running the ball. I therefore do not count touches in terms of rushing in that regard. “Hey, you got 10 rushes and six catches, so that’s a total of 16,” I’m counting. Additionally, I believe they are developing a strong rapport with one another both on and off the field.
In his debut season, Spears caught 52 catches for 385 yards and a touchdown while running for 453 yards and two touchdowns on 100 carries.

In the previous season, Pollard ran for 1,005 yards and six touchdowns on a career-high 252 carries.

.. In addition, he caught 55 receptions for 311 yards, a career-high.

During the offseason, Spears and Pollard have been exercising and challenging one another.

Jordan now has to figure out how to make use of them.
