Veteran RB Dillon to visit Titans

The Tennessee Titans will host veteran running back Corey Dillon for a visit this week, according to

Dillon, 32, was released by the New England Patriots this off-season after rushing for 812 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2006 while splitting carries with rookie Lawrence Maroney.

The Titans are in need of a running back after losing Travis Henry to the Denver Broncos after declining to pay his $8 million roster bonus at the outset of free agency.

Dillon spent the past three seasons with the Pats after spending the first eight years with the Cincinnati Bengals.

During his time with the Patriots, Dillon not only helped the team to one Super Bowl and into the playoffs each year, but he also reformed his reputation that has been tarnished during his time in Cincinnati.

The Titans have LenDale White, but he came into off-season workouts much heavier than his usual playing weight. Regardless, the Titans are looking for someone who can help at the running back position.
