They’ve also acquired Robert Woods who last played for the Los Angeles Rams.
But despite the additions they’ve made to their receiving corps, the Titans remain a run-first team.
After all, they have the most imposing option from the backfield in Derrick Henry.
His size and his speed can wear defenders down, giving him chunks of yards most of the time.
The former Offensive Player of the Year dominates the snaps because it works.
Head coach Mike Vrabel understands the uniqueness of Henry and uses it to the full extent.
Unfortunately, a foot injury sidelined Henry last season.
However, he has bounced back from that condition and is ready to help the Titans once again.
With Henry on board, Titans offensive coordinator Todd Downing will stick to what works for them.
"Our identity doesn't change because of who's in the game. We play a certain brand of football. Having Derrick is a luxury that we'll take advantage of."#Titans OC Todd Downing on how the offense will be w/ Derrick Henry returning.

ESPN’s Turron Davenport shared a quote from Downing on how the offense will be run.
Downing said, “Our identity doesn’t change because of who’s in the game. We play a certain brand of football. Having Derrick is a luxury that we’ll take advantage of.”
It is a lop-sided advantage considering that Henry nearly had consecutive 2,000-yard rushing seasons.
Balanced Attack For The Titans
Vrabel knows that Henry will dominate the ball and their offensive linemen will have to block for him.
However, it doesn’t mean that they will abandon the passing game.
Burks has the opportunity to become a special player, given his talent.
But as always, they will call the play that puts them in a position to win.
Be it a run play for Henry or a play-action pass to Burks, moving the chains is their priority.
