The Tennessee Titans are expected to sign former New England Patriots running back Dion Lewis to a four-year contract, according to multiple reports.
Monetary details have yet to be reported, but the deal is expected to make him a top-10 running back in the league.
Lewis, 27, drew a good degree of interest on the open market, including from the Patriots, after leading New England with 896 rushing yards last season and adding six touchdowns on the ground.
He was also a threat through the air, hauling in 32 passes for 214 yards and three touchdowns.
Lewis entered the 2017 campaign with 688 rushing yards across his injury-marred NFL career, which includes stints with the Philadelphia Eagles, Cleveland Browns, Indianapolis Colts and Patriots.
He missed all of the 2013 season with a fractured fibula, sat out 2014 after being released by the Colts and missed chunks of time in 2015 and '16 with a torn ACL.
The Titans still have Derrick Henry atop their running back depth chart after releasing DeMarco Murray last week.
Lewis will join fellow former Patriot Malcolm Butler in Tennessee, with the cornerback reportedly set to join the Titans on a five-year, £44m contract.
