Last year Derrick Henry led the NFL with 303 carries and 1,540 rushing yards. This year, those numbers may go down, by design.
Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith said it will probably be better for Tennessee’s offense “if more guys are touching the ball,” according to Michael Giardi of NFL Network.
Henry has signed his franchise tender and is ready to play for a one-year, $10.278 million contract this year. If Evans successfully reduces Henry’s workload this year, the Titans may allow Henry to walk in free agency next year.
