Biography

 
PRO: The Titans identified Shonn Greene in 2013 as a priority early in free agency to serve as a between-the-tackles rusher in the Titans’ backfield.  The 5-foot-11-inch, 233-pounder is a compact, powerful runner who now helps lead the team’s talented and versatile stable of running backs.  In his first season in Tennessee, he was limited by injuries but managed 295 yards and four touchdowns on 77 carries.  The six-year veteran put up back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons with the N.Y. Jets and scored 14 total touchdowns over his last two years (2011-2012) there.  The former Iowa Hawkeye excels in short-yardage situations. When the Jets faced third-and-two or shorter in 2012, Greene gained first downs on an NFL-best 11 of 11 attempts and on second-and-two or shorter, he was 12 of 15.  

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:
•    In 2012, Greene set a career-high with 1,063 rushing yards, marking his second-consecutive season over 1,000 yards.
•    In 2011, Greene started a career-high 15 games and registered the first 1,000-yard season of his career, carrying 253 times for 1,054 yards and six touchdowns.
•    Greene scored three rushing touchdowns in his Jets postseason career, tying Curtis Martin and Freeman McNeil for the most in Jets history.  His 502 rushing yards in the postseason rank behind only McNeil (632) and Martin (528) for most in Jets postseason history.
•    Greene collected 263 rushing yards in his first two postseason games, the second-most rushing yards a rookie runner has ever amassed, trailing only Duane Thomas (Dallas), who posted 278 yards in his first two contests as a rookie in 1970.
