Is Derrick Henry For Real?

Matt Woolsey | December 27th, 2018

I remember watching Derrick Henry when he was in Alabama and was very high on him coming into the NFL. The landing spot in Tennessee behind the newly signed DeMarco Murray was less than desirable. But ever so often did we get a glimpse of what Henry could be as the starter. Then this past offseason the Titans moved on from Murray and made Henry the guy. Sure they brought in Dion Lewis as your third-down change of pace guy, but Henry is that first/second down bruiser so it was expected. Plus Lewis had a history of being injured throughout the season.

Thunder and Lightning in the Titans’ Backfield

Scott Burke | July 15th, 2018

The 2018 offseason saw the Tennessee Titans say goodbye to former All-Pro running back DeMarco Murray. Over the past two seasons, the now-retired Murray had split time with former Alabama Crimson Tide star running back Derrick Henry. The two offered a versatile one-two punch for a young up-and-coming Titans offense. With the release of Murray, it was expected that Henry would assume the lead back duties for the Titans. However, shortly into free agency, the team from “Music City” signed former New England Patriots running back Dion Lewis to a 4-year $19.8 million contract.
