Running back David Cobb was let go by the Titans this week but he may not be out of work for long. The 2015 fifth-round pick worked out for the Patriots today, according to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald (on Twitter).
The Patriots are not signing Cobb today, but they could circle back to him after checking out their other options on the waiver wire this weekend. Held back by a calf injury last season, Cobb only saw time in seven games. Prior to the season, there was lots of talk about Cobb taking over the Titans’ running game. Cobb is now out to show everyone that he can perform elsewhere now that he is (presumably) healthy.
The Pats, who lost Dion Lewis to injury for at least the first six weeks of the season, have LeGarrette Blount and James White leading the way at running back. Behind them, New England has D.J. Foster, Brandon Bolden, and Tyler Gaffney.
