Ravens fans were ravenous for this kid in the 2014 NFL Draft. A hometown player, having gone to Towson University and with the Ravens in dire need of a running back for the future with Ray Rice being cut, it all made sense. Now after time with the Cleveland Browns, West finally has his homecoming.

West was grabbed by the Cleveland Browns in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft with the 94th overall pick. After finishing his rookie season as the Browns' leading rusher with 673 yards on 171 carries, the Browns were not pleased with his attitude heading into this season. After the final preseason game, the Browns decided to move on from the West experiment, trading him to the Tennessee Titans.

Sadly for West, his tenure with the Titans was short lived, having been active for 2 games and having a rather terrible stat sheet. His 3.2 yards per carry on 16 rushes and 2 fumbles likely helped seal his fate from the Titans. The Titans ended up cutting Terrence West on Saturday, November the 7th, allowing him to seek out other teams. Apparently the option at having a reunion with his hometown was too much to give up as he ends up on the Ravens practice squad.

In order to make room for West, the Ravens had to part ways with defensive end Nordly Capi according to Garrett Downing of

With a 4.54 second 40-yard dash time at the scouting combine, the 5-foot-9 Towson Football star can find himself in a good position with the Ravens. Barring his poor attitude or work ethic popping up for head coach John Harbaugh, he has the talent to blossom into a good NFL player and learn behind one of the best in the business in Justin Forsett. After a season or two on the practice squad, he could possibly be ready for a role in the Ravens offense.
