Titans released RB Shonn Greene.
It's a no-brainer decision for the Titans. Greene turns 30 in August, hasn't been effective since his 2009 rookie year with the Jets and had no guaranteed money left on a contract that was set to pay him $3.35 million this season. In two years since getting a three-year, $10 million deal with $4.5 million guaranteed from Tennessee, Greene rushed 171 times for 687 yards with six touchdowns. The Titans drafted their new big back in David Cobb two months ago. Tue, Jun 16, 2015 09:17:00 AM

Shonn Greene plans to attend this week's mandatory minicamp.

A non-factor since joining the Titans in 2013, Greene skipped all the voluntary sessions. He's expected to lose his roster spot following the selection of new big back David Cobb. Greene turns 30 in August and is owed $3.35 million.

Shonn Greene remains a no-show at Titans OTAs.

The sessions are considered "voluntary," and Greene is reportedly taking care of his infant child. Still, missing offseason practices doesn't bode well for Greene's chances of maintaining his 53-man roster spot. Turning 30 in August, Greene is owed $3.35 million in salary and bonuses this season.

Speaking Tuesday, Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said the team would "love" for Shonn Greene to be present at OTAs.

Greene is taking care of his infant child, which Whiz admitted was a "pretty important reason" to be absent from the "voluntary" sessions. Nevertheless, Greene's absence can't be doing himself any favors as he clings for dear life to his roster spot. We expect Greene to eventually be cut loose.

Shonn Greene is not expected to make the Titans' final roster.

Before the draft, Greene was on shaky ground thanks to the presence of Antonio Andrews. Then the Titans got good value with Minnesota's David Cobb in the fifth round. Assuming Cobb doesn't fall on his face, he'll take the power back role and push Greene to the fringe of the NFL. Greene turns 30 in August and has earned a total of 171 carries in his two seasons as a Titan.

Shonn Greene is missing OTAs to be with his family in Miami.

He's helping take care of his three-week old son. Greene should be a go for the team's mandatory mini-camp that lasts from June 16-18. There's an excellent chance Greene won't make the Titans' final 53-man roster. In the off-chance that Greene does stick, he'll earn a $3.25 million base salary before hitting free agency in 2016.

ESPN Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky considers Shonn Greene's roster spot in jeopardy.

Greene is owed $3.5 million in the final year of his deal. He’s averaged 4.0 YPC the last two seasons and remains a release candidate if the Titans draft a running back. Tennessee would leave $833,000 in dead money by cutting Greene.

Shonn Greene has pled guilty to "failure to exercise due care" and "parking in a handicap spot" in his October driving case.

Greene had originally also been charged with resisting arrest and driving on a suspended license after he attempted an ill-fated escape from his illegal park in a handicap spot. Going on 30, Greene is due $3.25 million for 2015 after a woefully ineffective 2014. He'll almost certainly be cut. This being the Titans, they're unlikely to put the savings to good use.
Thu, Feb 5, 2015 01:30:00 PM

Shonn Greene rushed 11 times for 94 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Colts.

Don't be fooled by this fluky box score. Greene was once again awful for the Titans this season, predictably making them look silly for the $10M contract he was signed to as a free agent in 2013. The plodding ex-Jet finishes 2014 with 94 carries for 392 yards with two touchdowns and one catch for 13 yards. Owed $3.35 million in 2015, he'll almost certainly be cut and find an ice-cold market. Green turns 30 years old in August.
Sun, Dec 28, 2014 04:33:00 PM

Shonn Greene rushed seven times for 28 yards in the Titans' Week 16 loss to the Jaguars.

He wasn't targeted in the passing game. Greene must have been tuckered out after getting his "revenge" on the Jets last Sunday, as his seven touches were 10 fewer than he received in Week 15. Bishop Sankey again led the Titans' committee. Greene gets to close the book on an(other) uninspiring campaign against the Colts next week.
Thu, Dec 18, 2014 11:38:00 PM

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said Monday that Shonn Greene handled 16 carries in Sunday's loss to the Jets because he showed the "hot hand."

Greene averaged 3.1 YPC and 2.8 YPC if you leave out his longest run, a barn-burning eight-yard gain. The Titans are 2-12, riding imaginary hot hands.
Mon, Dec 15, 2014 04:44:00 PM

Shonn Greene rushed 16 times for 50 yards Week 15 against the Jets.

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt took a long walk down Narrative Street in this one. After not being active for Week 14, Greene was given 17 touches against his former team. He had 16 touches combined in the Titans' last six games. Greene was predictably ineffective with the carries, but his workload against the Jets puts him back on the touchdown prayer radar.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 07:58:00 PM

Shonn Green is inactive for Week 14 against the Giants.

He's a healthy scratch. It's been a long time coming for Greene, whose days are numbered in Tennessee. Antonio Andrews is active and will serve as the big back behind Bishop Sankey and Dexter McCluster. Also inactive for the Titans are Kendall Wright, LT Taylor Lewan, RT Michael Oher, DB Jemea Thomas, DL Da'Quan Jones, and OLB Kamerion Wimbley. The Titans are down to their Nos. 4 and 5 tackles.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 11:42:00 AM

Shonn Greene is owed $3.35 million in 2015, the final year of his current contract.

The Titans gave Greene a three-year, $10M contract in March of 2013. It was universally ripped at the time, so saying it's a terrible contract is not 20-20 hindsight. Greene, averaging 3.75 YPC in 21 games as a Titan, obviously won't be back next year to finish out the deal. Coach Ken Whisenhunt might as well see what Antonio Andrews has a complement to Bishop Sankey.

Shonn Greene managed zero yards on two carries in the Titans' Week 13 loss to the Texans.

Green is a non-factor both in real life and fantasy football.
