Former tiger returns home

By: Tyler Beard, Assistant Sports Editor 

The Baltimore Ravens signed former Towson running back Terrance West to its practice squad on Tuesday.

He will have a chance to break into the 52-man roster over the rest of the season and become the No. 2 running back behind Justin Forsett.

West finished his career at Towson with 4,854 rushing yards and 84 touchdowns in three years.

He was an essential part of the 2013 team that went to the FCS National Championship, finishing the season with 2,501 yards and 41 touchdowns. His numbers made him a finalist for the 2013 Walter Payton Award and a top running back prospect in the 2014 NFL Draft.

West was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft. In his rookie season, the running back finished 673 rushing yards and four touchdowns.

The Towson star was traded to the Tennessee Titans in the 2015 offseason because of a running back surplus.

However, West fell in the depth chart in Tennessee and was waived.

West was thought to have been drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in 2014 NFL Draft, but a year later, the team ended up with their guy.
