Adam Schefter is reporting that the Titans have agreed to a 4-year deal with former Patriots running back Dion Lewis:

This changes everything for the Titans going forward. Lewis has the capability to be a three down back. They might still draft a running back, but they aren’t doing it before day 3 now.

For me, this also changes the outlook for Derrick Henry. He is no longer assured the first and second down work. Lewis and Henry make a great 1-2 punch, but the workload will probably end up being close to 50/50 on first and second down with Lewis getting all of the 3rd down work.

I haven’t been able to spend much time on Twitter tonight, but I am assuming that the panic from earlier has died down at this point. The Titans have solidified there cornerback room and running back room before free agency has actually started. Not a bad day....

UPDATE- Terms for Lewis:
