The Tennessee Titans reached a one-year contract agreement with UFA RB Chris Brown Monday.
A league source indicated to Scout.com Brown chose to re-sign with
Tennessee because they gave him the best chance to start this season.
The fifth-year pro out of the University of Colorado is seen as the favorite to
win Tennessee's starting job at running back this season due to his playing experience.
But it should be noted the oft-injured Brown only appeared in five games last
season. He actually was a healthy inactive for several games last year due to the
resurgence of veteran RB Travis Henry.
Brown will still have to compete for the job against second-year RB LenDale
White and rookie RB Chris Henry.
Brown also drew interest from the Chicago Bears and New England Patriots.
