Titans steal another player from Patriots, reportedly add Dion Lewis on four-year deal

Another free agent is leaving the hooded shelter of New England for Tennessee this offseason, as the Titans are reportedly signing running back Dion Lewis to a four-year deal, according to a report from Adam Schefter of ESPN

Lewis is a pretty amazing tale, a guy who was taken with a fifth-round pick out of Pittsburgh by the Eagles only to struggle in the system and bounce around the NFL before finally landing on the Patriots and breaking out. He scored a small deal with New England, battled some injuries and exploded down the stretch in 2017, looking like one of the best backs in the NFL for stretches. 

The timing was perfect, because Lewis is hitting free agency at the age of 27. Even in a market where there is not a ton of interest in running backs, Lewis is a perfect match for a team like the Titans. And he apparently is getting paid, with Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reporting (we think) that Lewis will be paid like a top-10 back in the NFL next year.

That’s actually not a huge bar to beat, because most of the highly-paid backs in today’s NFL are rookies. Leonard Fournette is the fourth-highest-paid back, while Ezekiel Elliott is the sixth.
