  • Titans Won't Use Franchise Tag On Derrick Henry

    Headshot for Derrick Henry

    The Tennessee Titans won't use their franchise tag on impending free-agent running back Derrick Henry this year, according to league sources. With a new coaching staff coming in this offseason, it wasn't expected that the Titans would make much of an effort to retain King Henry as he heads into his age-30 season. The former second-rounder in 2016 out of Alabama has been a Pro Bowler in four of the last five seasons, although he showed some signs of decline in 2023. He had a league-high 280 carries for 1,167 yards (career-low-tying 4.2 yards per carry) and 12 touchdowns, adding 28 catches for 214 yards and no touchdowns as a pass-catcher. Henry may not age gracefully, but he should still have plenty of fantasy appeal in 2024 with a contending team.

  • Bill Callahan To Join His Son In Tennessee

    The Tennessee Titans hired Cleveland Browns offensive line coach Bill Callahan, the father of new Titans head coach Brian Callahan, as their new offensive line coach on Thursday. Bill Callahan has head-coaching experience with the Las Vegas Raiders and in college at Nebraska and led the Raiders to a Super Bowl appearance in 2002. He's been one of the top offensive line coaches in the NFL and served in that position with the New York Jets (2008-11), Dallas Cowboys (2012-14) and Washington Commanders (2015-19) before spending the last four years in Cleveland. His offensive lines have paved the way for nine 1,000-yard rushers. Bill and Brian Callahan will become the seventh father-son duo to be a head coach in the NFL. The addition of Bill Callahan will be good news for a Titans ground game that is likely to move on from Derrick Henry in 2024.

  • New Titans Coach Open To A Derrick Henry Return

    New Tennessee Titans head coach Brian Callahan said that he'd be fine with impending free-agent running back Derrick Henry returning in 2024. "A player like Derrick Henry fits into any offense. If he's open to a return, that fits for us. I'm never going to reject good players. There's no offense that would say I wouldn't went Derrick Henry," Callahan said. The former Bengals offensive coordinator preferred to lean on the pass in his time in Cincinnati with quarterback Joe Burrow, so it's pretty unlikely that Henry returns to the rebuilding Titans in 2024 and beyond. The 30-year-old is entering the back stretch of his career and will probably prefer signing with a contending team, so we'd be surprised if he returns to Tennessee. King Henry has passed the peak of his powers, but he still finished second in the NFL in rushing yardage in 2023 with 1,167.

  • Derrick Henry Wants To Play For Contender

    Tennessee Titans impending free-agent running back Derrick Henry isn't shutting the door on a return to the Titans, but he also wants to play for a contender. "I'll always be a Titan, even if I don't come back. At the end of the day, I want to win the Super Bowl. Wherever that is that gives me the best chance, that's what I want to do. I don't have no bad blood or feel no type of way if I'm not back. It's just what was supposed to happen. The story is already written, we're all just living it," Henry said. With the Titans heading into a rebuilding phase after firing head coach Mike Vrabel, it's highly unlikely Henry comes back to Tennessee. The 30-year-old four-time Pro Bowler had five 1,000-yard seasons in his time with the Titans and said he still feels "like I can run for another 2,000."

  • Titans Fire Head Coach Mike Vrabel

    The Tennessee Titans fired head coach Mike Vrabel on Tuesday, according to sources. Vrabel led the Titans to four straight winning seasons after he was hired in 2018, but the Titans have decided to move on after experiencing back-to-back frustrating seasons the last two years and finishing multiple games under .500 both times. Tennessee started the 2023 season 2-4 before their bye and were never a factor in the AFC playoff race while pivoting from veteran quarterback Ryan Tannehill to rookie Will Levis in the middle of the season. The Titans are at a crossroads this offseason. Vrabel is gone and both Tannehill and running back Derrick Henry are unlikely to return as they enter free agency. Vrabel's best season was in 2021, when the team went 12-5 and was the top seed in the AFC. Vrabel won NFL Coach of the Year, but the Titans were eliminated in their playoff opener that year.

  • Derrick Henry Rips Off 153 Rushing Yards In Season Finale

    Headshot for Derrick Henry

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed 19 times for 153 yards and a touchdown in the Week 18 upset win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. It was Henry's highest rushing total of the year, and his 8.1 yards per carry was his highest clip since December of the 2020 season. It was an excellent performance for the running back, who just turned 30 years old this week. Henry's contract expires this offseason, so Sunday's win could have been his last game as a member of the Titans organization.

  • Derrick Henry Looks To Finish Strong In Potential Last Game With Titans

    Headshot for Derrick Henry

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry has had plenty of down weeks this season, yet he still ranks eighth in total half-PPR points among ball-carriers this season. He has finished as a top-10 weekly running back seven times this year, but he's also finished outside the top 35 running backs on six occasions. Needless to say, he's a boom-or-bust fantasy option in the season finale against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Jacksonville presents a neutral matchup for running backs, so Henry is likely worth starting in traditional fantasy leagues. His upside this season hasn't made him a strong DFS option, though. Sunday's outing could be Henry's final game as a Tennessee Titan, so it'll be interesting to see if he goes out strong with a vintage performance.

  • Tyjae Spears Tallies 29 Yards On Nine Touches In Loss

    Tennessee Titans rookie running back Tyjae Spears rushed six times for no gain and caught three of his four targets for 29 yards in the Week 17 blowout loss to the Houston Texans. It was a disappointing performance for the rookie, but he's playing behind one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL. Spears could be the clear No. 1 running back in Tennessee next season, as there's a chance Derrick Henry is set to play in his final game for the organization on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Spears shouldn't be trusted in any leagues that extend to Week 18, but he'll be an interesting sleeper for fantasy football next year.

  • Derrick Henry Struggles Again In Week 17

    Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed 12 times for 42 yards and did not catch his lone target in the Week 17 loss to the Houston Texans. The 29-year-old did surpass 1,000 rushing yards on Sunday, but he is averaging a career-low 3.9 yards per carry. It was yet another disappointing performance for a player who used to dominate late in the season for fantasy managers. Next week, he'll face the Jacksonville Jaguars in what could be his last game in a Titans uniform.
