Free-agent RB Terrance West visiting Jaguars
Running back Terrance West will make the next stop on his current free agent tour in Jacksonville as he visits the Jaguars, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports.
West, 27, was a former third-round pick by the Cleveland Browns in 2014. He had a decent rookie year in Cleveland as he rushed for 673 yards and four touchdowns in 14 games (six starts).
After a brief stint with the Tennessee Titans, West then spent the past two full seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. He had his first-ever taste of being a team’s primary running back in 2016 as he played in all 16 games (13 starts), picking up a career-high 774 rushing yards with five touchdowns.
However, he was unfortunately limited to just five games last season due to a calf injury. He finished with a mere 138 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns as the Ravens opted not to bring him back due to Alex Collins’ emergence in his absence.
West will visit a Jaguars team which already has some decent options at running back, with Leonard Fournette, T.J. Yeldon, and Corey Grant currently on their depth chart. But after releasing Chris Ivory early in the offseason, the Jaguars apparently feel the need to add a bit more depth at the position.
If West does end up landing in Jacksonville, though, he could find it tough to work his way up the pecking order barring injuries to Yeldon and/or Grant.
