Another free agent has left the building, although this one was a move we have been expecting.
We have been talking all day about the growing certainty that Shonn Greene would be leaving the Jets to sign a deal with the Titans. Well, Adam Schefter reports this afternoon via Twitter that the deal is set.
Titans reached agreement on a three-year, $10 million deal with former Jets RB Shonn Greene.

Again, no surprise here, as the Jets didn’t seem to make a very active play to bring him back. Nobody in the building really saw him as a good fit for the West Coast style offense of Marty Mornhinweg.
However, he should prove to be an excellent fit with the Titans. Shonne’s brusing, run over you, style, is one that will compliment Chris Johnson’s speed quickly. As far as Shonn is concerned, he actually made a great decision, and may be joining a lethal one-two punch of a running attack.
Tennessee could be a scary team to watch running the football.
One piece of business that came out late afternoon, just a few minutes ago, that the Jets re-signed FB Lex Hilliard to a one year contract. Financial terms were not available at this time.
