We’re now just days away from the start of free agency! We’ve been looking at and profiling some key members of the Titans’ free agent class over the past few weeks. We still have a few more free agents to preview. There’s a chance we’ll still be looking at them after free agency opens, but the remaining list is mostly filled with role players that probably won’t sign anywhere until phase two or three, which makes these previews still relevant.

We’ll continue to provide some basic details on the player before making an argument for both sides — why the Titans should, or shouldn’t re-sign that player. We’ll also offer our final verdict and a prediction to go along with it.

Name: D’Onta Foreman

Position: Running back

Age: 24

Why the Titans should keep Foreman: Foreman was an electric runner at The University of Texas. After running for an astounding 2,028 yards in his final season at Texas, the nearby Houston Texans used a top-100 selection on Foreman during the 2017 NFL Draft. Foreman hasn’t lived up to expectations yet, but he’s still just 24 years old. The Titans brought him in during the 2020 season for depth purposes, and Foreman had his moments. He finished the year with 95 yards on 22 carries. He proved that he could be a formidable backup.

Why the Titans should let Foreman walk: If Foreman was going to live up to the potential, he would have done so by now. He’ll turn 25 years old before the 2021 season kicks off. He’s not old, but he’s already shown his true colors. With Derrick Henry and Darrynton Evans on the roster, the Titans may not even need to carry another running back on the roster.

Final verdict: Foreman should not be back.

Prediction: The Titans go in a different direction.
