  • Jeremy McNichols: Not tendered by Pittsburgh

    The Steelers didn't tender an offer to McNichols as a restricted free agent Wednesday, Alan Saunders of reports.

    This was an easy decision after McNichols missed all of 2022 with a shoulder injury. He wasn't worth the $2.6 million tender and will now head to the open market.

  • Steelers' Jeremy McNichols: Placed on IR

    Pittsburgh placed McNichols (shoulder) on injured reserve Wednesday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

    McNichols signed with the Steelers to compete for a depth role in the backfield, but he lasted less than a week into camp before suffering what was apparently a severe shoulder injury. The Steelers signed Master Teague in a corresponding move to restore numbers in the backfield heading into the preseason.

  • Steelers' Jeremy McNichols: Bangs up shoulder

    McNichols is being evaluated for a shoulder injury, Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Another update on the injury will likely surface once its severity is determined. McNichols is battling for a depth role in Pittsburgh's backfield after suiting up for 30 games with the Titans over the previous two seasons.

  • Steelers' Jeremy McNichols: Joins Pittsburgh backfield

    McNichols has signed with the Steelers.

    The 2017 fifth-rounder gives the Steelers added running back depth following the team's release of Trey Edmunds. McNichols is coming off a 2021 campaign with the Titans in which he carried 41 times for 156 yards over 14 games while adding 28 catches on 38 targets for 240 yards and a TD. With Pittsburgh, McNichols will compete with Benny Snell and Anthony McFarland for snaps and touches behind the team's undisputed top back, Najee Harris.

  • Jeremy McNichols: Let go Thursday

    McNichols was released by the Falcons on Thursday.

    The 5-foot-9 running back was dropped along with receiver Austin Trammell in corresponding moves to make room for the additions of offensive lineman Jonotthan Harrison and defensive lineman Jalen Dalton. McNichols spent the past two seasons playing for Tennessee, accumulating 655 yards on 116 total touches over 30 regular-season games during that span.

  • Falcons' Jeremy McNichols: Signs with ATL

    McNichols signed with the Falcons on Thursday, Michael Rothstein of reports.

    This will be the eighth team McNichols has spent time with since the Bucs made him a fifth-round pick in 2017, and it'll be the fifth team he's played a regular-season game for if he makes it that far. His chances are better in Atlanta than they would be practically anywhere else, joining a backfield that otherwise has Cordarrelle Patterson, Damien Williams, fifth-round rookie Tyler Allgeier and Qadree Ollison as the top candidates for jobs. Patterson is the lock of the bunch, but he's unlikely to handle a workhorse role, leaving room for someone else to get regular touches. McNichols has made 30 of his 34 regular-season appearances in a Titans uniform, mostly handling passing downs for Tennessee the past two seasons. Last year, he had nearly as many targets (38) as carries (41), even though Derrick Henry missed half the season with a foot injury.

  • Jeremy McNichols: Joins Titans' practice squad

    The Titans signed McNichols to their practice squad Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

    The 26-year-old was waived by Tennessee on Saturday but will join the team's practice squad ahead of the playoffs after Jordan Wilkins (undisclosed) was placed on the practice squad injured list Tuesday. McNichols appeared in 14 games during the regular season and rushed 41 times for 156 yards while securing 28 of 38 targets for 240 yards and a touchdown.

  • Jeremy McNichols: Waived Saturday

    McNichols was waived by the Titans on Saturday.

    The Titans opted to elevate Jordan Wilkins from the practice squad, signaling the end of McNichols' tenure with the franchise. The fifth-year running back had a relatively critical role earlier in the season after Derrick Henry's season-ending foot injury, which ultimately allowed the scatback to set career highs in both receptions and receiving yards. The emergence of Dontrell Hilliard relegated McNichols to an offensive afterthought recently as the 26-year-old tallied just nine carries and zero receptions over the last two weeks.

  • Titans' Jeremy McNichols: Minimal role

    McNichols rushed the ball twice for 14 yards in Sunday's 34-3 win over the Dolphins.

    McNichols was the third back in Tennessee's rotation as he took the field for only six offensive snaps. His playing time could tick up in different game script given that his primary role for the team comes from work as a receiver out of the backfield. However, that may not come in Week 18, as the Titans should be favored in a matchup at Houston.
