Derrick Henry says he feels like he could keep running

The Pro Bowl is a low-impact game, which Derrick Henry deserves after the physical pounding of his season. Even if the Titans running back hadn’t led the league in rushing yards (1,540) and attempts (303), the way he ran lends itself to soreness. Henry told Jim Wyatt of the Titans’ official website that his Pro [more]

Tom Brady to Titans talk doesn’t make a whole lot of sense

As the dots get connected between Tom Brady and a potential new team, the most obvious football destinations include the outposts of the Patriot Way.

A.J. Brown “fell short of my goals” in rookie season

Wide receiver A.J. Brown led all rookies in receiving yards during the 2019 season and the Titans advanced to the AFC Championship Game, which seems like a pretty good way to kick off an NFL career on both fronts.

Via Austin Karp of Sports Business Daily, both games drew significantly [more]

Jack Conklin: In perfect world, I’ll be back with Titans

The Titans are clearing out their lockers on Monday and some of the team’s players are contemplating what the future will hold. Right tackle Jack Conklin is in that group.

Marcus Mariota: No doubt I’ll be a starter again

Tyreek Hill made an interesting choice during Sunday’s pre-game introductions

Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill, already a controversial figure for off-field incidents and allegations, created a stir before Sunday’s AFC Championship game began. During pre-game introductions, Hill got on all fours and then lifted a leg, mimicking a urinating dog.
