Khari Blasingame: Inks deal with Titans

The Titans signed Blasingame to a one-year deal, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chroniclereports.

Analysis: Blasingame suited up in all but one game with the Titans during the 2020 campaign. Contributing as both a blocker on offense and a special-teams asset, the fullback caught four of his five targets for 39 yards during his 2020 season and will look to build on that number in the upcoming year.

Khari Blasingame: Activated from COVID-19 list

The Titans activated Blasingame (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Blasingame wasn't able to suit up versus Buffalo on Tuesday, but he now looks on track to return for Sunday's tilt against the Texans. The fullback normally only contributes as a blocker on offense and as a special-teams asset.

Khari Blasingame: Lands on COVID-19 list

Blasingame will be placed on the COVID-19 Reserve list Monday, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.

Analysis: The 24-year-old fielded only one offensive touch between Weeks 1 and 3, though he has garnered 20-plus percent of the offensive snaps over each of Tennessee's past two games while serving as the starting fullback. With the Titans' Week 4 matchup against Pittsburgh already having been postponed until Oct. 25 because of concerns over COVID-19, Blasingame has a chance to avoid missing time so long as he can post consecutive negative tests between now and Tennessee's Week 5 matchup against the Bills.

Khari Blasingame: Minor role in playoffs

Blasingame played 44 offensive snaps but did not touch the ball in three playoff games.

Analysis: The 23-year-old saw similar usage in six regular-season games after being promoted to the 53-man roster in mid-November, though he did see minor involvement in the passing game with four catches for 54 yards. Blasingame remains under contract for 2020, but his reserve role and $585,000 salary doesn't provide much roster security.

Khari Blasingame: One catch in regular-season finale

Blasingame hauled in his lone target for seven yards in the team's Week 17 win over the Texans.

Analysis: Blasingame played 26 total snaps, 13 of which came on offense. However, that playing time produced only one target, with Derrick Henry continuing to dominate touches out of the backfield. Blasingame remains under contract with the team through 2020 and is currently set to make $585,000, however he'll likely be in competition for his roster spot throughout training camp.

Khari Blasingame: Impact in passing game

Blasingame did not record a carry but did haul in both of his targets for 47 yards in the Titans' Week 14 win over the Raiders.

Analysis: Blasingame notably worked ahead of Dion Lewis, recording the first of his two receptions on the team's opening drive. While he didn't manage another reception until the third quarter, he broke off big gains of 24 and 23 yards respectively. Given the workhorse nature of Derrick Henry and the limited pass volume in the Titans' offense, Blasingame isn't likely to do anything more than further dent Dion Lewis' status on the depth chart.

Khari Blasingame: Heads to Tennessee

The Titans signed Blasingame to the active roster Wednesday, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.

Analysis: Blasingame was toiling on the Vikings' practice squad, and the Titans came knocking after waiving Rod Smith on Tuesday. The undrafted rookie will return to his college town, as he rushed for 957 yards and 15 touchdowns for Vanderbilt over three seasons. The 23-year-old could make his NFL debut as the top fullback Nov. 24 against the Jaguars.

Khari Blasingame: Cut by Vikings

Blasingame was waived by the Vikings on Saturday, Courtney Cronin of reports.

Analysis: Blasingame joined Minnesota as an undrafted free agent immediately after the 2019 draft. He ultimately lost out to C.J. Ham for the full back spot and the Vikings opted not to keep two players at the position. If he clears waivers he'll be a practice squad candidate.

Khari Blasingame: Scores TD Sunday

Blasingame scored a one-yard touchdown on his lone carry in Sunday's preseason win over Seattle.

Analysis: The undrafted free agent from Vanderbilt has impressed the coaching staff during training camp with his receiving ability in addition to his blocking skills. However, it's not clear he'll win a roster spot even with the Vikings saying they'll utilize a fullback in their offense. The Vikings may keep just fullback C.J. Ham on the roster.
