Titans coach Jeff Fisher wishes the team had been able to keep RB LeGarrette Blount

Remember that the Titans were the team that first drafted troubled college running back LeGarrette Blount?

Well, now that the Titans are working out running backs, including former first-round pick Larry Johnson, one has to wonder if Jeff Fisher regrets getting rid of Blount.

If your wondering the same thing – Fisher does say he wishes Blount was still a Titan. “I thought we could get him to the practice squad, get him on practice squad, knowing that when and if there was any kind of interest, we could bring him back to the active roster. That didn’t happen, but I’m very, very happy for him.”

Blount was claimed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and now has 359 yards rushing with four touchdowns on 75 carries this year.

As far as Johnson goes, Fisher says that he’s ready if the Titans do decide to sign him, but as of now no decision has been made.
