2015 Outlook
After his strong late season and playoff run as a rookie in 2009, much was expected of Greene but he has largely disappointed over the last two seasons. With Thomas Jones out of the picture in 2010, Greene was expected to assume the lead role in the Jets backfield with LaDainian Tomlinson in a change of pace and receiving role. Unfortunately for Greene’s owners, LT still had some life in his legs and Greene flopped with 766 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Last season, LT was relegated to a pure backup role but Greene again failed to impress, gaining 1,054 yards and six touchdowns with three of those scores coming in Week 13 against the Redskins. In fact, if you take away his Week 13 and 14 games, Greene’s FPts average drops from 10.2 to 7.7, hardly confidence-inspiring. For 2012, Tony Sparano joins the Jets as their offensive coordinator, LT is gone and he will be replaced by Joe McKnight and Bilal Powell, neither of whom is a threat to steal Greene’s job. That means Greene should top his 253 rushing attempts from a year ago and it was also nice to see him active in the passing game last season with 30 receptions for 211 yards, both career highs. On the negative side, Tim Tebow joins the Jets and will likely garner plenty of red zone touches, making it almost impossible for Greene to significantly improve on his six touchdowns from a year ago. Add it all up and Greene shapes up as a risk-free RB2 in 2012.
News From The Past 90 Days
Titans release RB Shonn Greene     -- Tue Jun 16 9:32 am --

Scheduled to make $3.25 million
The Titans plan to release running back Shonn Greene this morning, according to sources familiar with the situation. Greene, who signed a three-year, $10 million contract in 2013, was scheduled to make $3.25 million in the final year of his contract this year. (The Tennessean)

FF Today's Take: The Titans have drafted two running backs in the last two years. Bishop Sankey and David Cobb (rookie) will handle the bulk of the carries in 2015. Greene had back-to-back 1000-yard rushing seasons with the Jets but never found his footing in Tennessee.
