Patriots bring in former Titans RB David Cobb for workout

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Former Tennessee Titans running back David Cobb, who entered the NFL as a fifth-round draft choice in 2015, worked out for the New England Patriots on Friday, according to ESPN NFL Insider Field Yates.

The 5-foot-11, 229-pound Cobb played in seven games last season (one start) in Tennessee, totaling 52 carries for 146 yards and one touchdown. Almost half of that production came in the final game of the regular season.

But while Cobb had built some momentum late in 2015, he soon found himself buried on the depth chart after the Titans, under first-year general manager Jon Robinson, traded for DeMarco Murray and drafted Derrick Henry in the second round.

Cobb had 28 yards on eight carries, which included a fumble in the team's second preseason game. He was waived earlier this week as part of Tennessee trimming its roster to 75 players.

Cobb was one of several players in for a workout.

The Patriots could be looking to bolster depth at running back, where LeGarrette Blount and James White appear to be the only roster locks as Dion Lewis opens the season on the physically-unable-to-perform list. Cobb also could be a practice-squad consideration for the Patriots.
