Indications are the #Titans plan to sign former #Jets RB Shonn Greene during his visit. I'm expecting this one to get done today as well

Slow, ineffective and offers little in the passing game, Greene will back-up Chris Johnson in Tennessee.

Green finished the 2012 season with a 3.9 average per carry.

Another nugget on Greene: Per http://Stats.com , he was NFL-best 11-for-11 converting 3rd-down runs of less than 3 yards #Titans

He would be that Lendale White smash to CJ's dash

The BIGGEST fantasy tease of all time. You think he's going to blow up, he does nothing, you bench him, and...21/133/2 TDs following his benching. He did that to me EVERY time I drafted him/picked him up off of wires.

I hate him. Hate him more now that he's a Titan. Evil or Very Mad

I like this signing for Titans, good short yardage guy who always torches the Bills

Decent signing, very good short yardage back and can break out some very good games here and there.

I'm surprise he didn't want to go to a team where he would have at least a chance to start.

Shonn Greene is the type of runner that could have a whole open for 20 yards and only gain 25. In the last two seasons he should genuinely have at least 6 more touchdowns because of how often he was wide free in open field but he has absolutely zero breakaway speed.

Guess they're not re-signing Javon Ringer. Wouldn't mind if they brought him to NY. Was a big fan of his at MSU.

My guess is he's going to be splitting carries pretty evenly with Chris Johnson. They want more of a RB-by-committee approach and the option to have a tougher runner in there when they need him. It's a good idea. They don't really have any good power runners on the roster right now and to get Greene running behind an improved offensive line is going to do wonders for the Titans.

Would love to see what he could do on a team that at least had the THREAT of the pass.

His departure lead to the AIRBHG. Maybe it will finally leave Iowa and move to NJ

This is probably the best possible scenario for him. He and CJ are going to make a great tandem. Greene always needed that speed back to complement him. By the time the 4th quarter rolls around, Greene will be plowing through a tired defense.

I wonder what the compensation is, but I think this is a great signing.

The positive for us is that we don't necessarily need him to be a homerun hitter. That's what CJ's for. We just need him to grind out those tough 3-4 yard runs.

I think this is a decent signing. I still want to draft Lattimore and have him "redshirt" the 2013 season.

Hes a garbage starting RB, but since the Titans have Chris Johnson and he will be just a backup that isn't a terrible signing, depending on how much they gave up.

But with the Jets this guy had bad vision, always left yards on the field, he rarely broke tackles and never makes a guy miss. Hes slow and has bad hands.

What frustrated me was when this guy always tried to truck the last man to beat instead of trying for extra yards, his truck never worked as he would go down and often complain that he was hurt after it.

this is the perfect situation for him. Just don't expect him to show up against a good defense. There were times I forgot he was even on the roster.
