The Tennesee Titans have acquired running back Terrance West from the Cleveland Browns in exchange for a conditional draft pick, the team announced Sunday. The draft pick is a conditional seventh-round choice, NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reports.
West, 24, was a third-round pick in 2014 and played the majority of the team’s snaps at running back last season. He led the team with 673 rushing yards on 171 carries and scored four touchdowns.
The trade leaves Cleveland with just two running backs on its roster—Isaiah Crowell and rookie Duke Johnson. Veteran Shaun Draughn was released by the team on Saturday, but could be brought back, the Cleveland Plain Dealer’s Mary Kay Cabot reports. Pro Football Talk reported Saturday that the Browns were seeking to add a veteran running back.
Tennesse now has five running backs on its roster, including Dexter McCluster, who occasionally lines up as a slot receiver.
