Recently, the Tennessee Titans’ backup running back Hassan Haskins was arrested for aggravated assault by strangulation after an alleged incident with his girlfriend on June 22nd. He was quickly released from jail after posting a $10,000 bond. Allegedly, the incident stemmed from Haskins’ girlfriend liking another man’s post on Instagram, causing an argument that then turned violent.
The Titans would release a statement shortly following the arrest saying, “We are aware of the situation and gathering additional information”. Last season, Haskins participated in fifteen games and started in one in his rookie season with the Titans. He would record 93 yards and zero touchdowns on the ground.
With Haskins not getting much of a chance to prove himself in his rookie season paired with this very concerning off-the-field incident, there is a strong chance that the Titans will cut him from the team before the regular season begins.
Even without Haskins on the roster, the Titans would still be in good shape in the running game. While Derrick Henry has begun to regress as a result of the enormous amount of carries he has received throughout his football career, he is still arguably the most talented back that the league has to offer. Barring any major setback to him this season, Tennessee will still be one of the strongest rushing offenses in the league.
However, with running backs frequently being banged up, it would be in the best interest of the team to sign a one-year rental back to play backup to Henry. With the recent devaluation of the position, there are still plenty of elite options for the Titans to pick up for their backup spot.
Players like Dalvin Cook, Ezekiel Elliott, and Leonard Fournette all currently find themselves without teams, and if Tennessee could sign any of these three players, they would without a doubt have the strongest running back room in the league. With the team likely having a very weak passing attack, it would make a lot of sense for them to cut Haskins and sign a veteran back that can serve as the strongest backup option in the league.
