Shonn Greene to join Chris Johnson in Tennessee

The fifth-year tailback, coming off a season in which he averaged a career-low 3.9 yards a carry and a career high four fumbles, signed with the Tennessee Titans Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

His new deal, which spans three years, is reportedly worth $10 million.

Greene will go from a starting role in New York to a spell back gig in Tennessee behind Chris Johnson. It's probably where Greene belongs, as he's not a game-changer but can chip away nicely when need be.
