The Tennessee Titans have made several acquisitions this off-season, including the signing of former Jets running back Shonn Greene to a three-year deal.
Star running back Chris Johnson has already openly questioned why the Titans felt the need to add another back, and now a player with ties to the Titans is speaking up as well.
Former Titans backup running back Javon Ringer also has some apprehension about the signing, and told the Tennessean he doesn’t understand why the Titans signed Greene either.
“I am happy for Shonn because I know him from playing in the Big Ten, and he’s a good guy. He’s a good running back,” Ringer said. “But when they got him I said, ‘Dang, they had some guys who never got a chance to play, so why are they adding someone like that?’
“All this talk about them needing another running back to help C.J., it kind of made me upset. I’m like, ‘Man, they had some good running backs behind C.J., and they just never really got a chance.’ And because we were not able to play, it made it look like C.J. didn’t have any help. C.J. had some help, but they never used it. It’s frustrating.”
It sounds as if Ringer wants to know why the Titans felt like now was the time to utilize a two back system now that he’s gone.
