As the relationship between the Tennessee Titans and running back Chris Johnson seems to sour more and more every year, the team is expected to make a run in this Free Agency period at a running back. According to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean, to fill this need, they may not be looking far as they might just stay in the AFC South Division by trying to grab either Donald Brown or Ben Tate.
Wouldn’t surprise me to see #Titans poke around RBs Ben Tate (Texans) and Donald Brown (Colts). They know both well

They do absolutely know both players well, as they get to see them twice a year, and generally come out on the losing end to both.
Both Tate and Brown have proven that they can not only carry the load, but carry it well. With Johnson seemingly just about on his way out of Tennessee one way or the other, either Brown or Tate can jump right in and help get this team back to the playoffs.
