With rookie David Cobb set to return from the injured reserve, Titans coach Mike Mularkey has made his first big move. According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler (on Twitter), the team has cut running back Terrance West. The second-year player will have to pass through waivers before he can sign with a team.
The 24-year-old was traded to the Titans following the preseason, with the Browns receiving a conditional draft pick in the 2016 Draft. However, Wyatt tweets that West didn’t play enough games to meet the conditions, meaning the Browns won’t be receiving a pick.
The former third-rounder only played two games for Tennessee, compiling 51 rushing yards on 16 attempts. This followed a rookie season in Cleveland where he ran for 673 yards and four scores.
As Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com notes, West was in Mike Pettine‘s dog house throughout most of his Browns tenure. At the time, the running back was described as having “maturity issues,” although it’s uncertain if that contributed to his release from the Titans.
