Derrick Henry to have expanded role with Titans

Derrick Henry Titans

Derrick Henry will be utilized in a variety of roles within the Tennessee Titans offense during the upcoming season.

Henry is preparing for his third season in the NFL after starring at Alabama. To this point in his professional career, he has primarily made his living running between the tackles while splitting time with DeMarco Murray. While his main job this will still be to carry the football, it appears Henry will be more involved in the passing game than ever before. ESPN reporter Turron Davenport says Henry has been utilized in a receiving role during camp.

During his rookie season, Henry was targeted on passes 15 times. Last year he saw 17 attempts come his way. Tennessee has a new offensive coordinator in Matt LaFleur who will implement a new system. It looks as though that could be featuring Henry as more than just a bruising runner.
