Football is finally back! Well, almost. Training camp begins on Saturday for the Tennessee Titans. A mailbag before camp seemed like a pretty good idea. Training Camp is open to the public and all times are listed below.

We also have some other big news. A podcast is coming for Armchair Titans. Myself and contributing writer, Brett Batchelor are working on a podcast covering all the latest Titans news. We’re still working out the kinks and coming up with ideas and a name for the show, so bear with us. But, it is an exciting time for us as our brand is continuing to grow and that is all on you, the people who read our work. We appreciate you more than you know.
Now, to the mailbag.
Which roster bubble players on other rosters are should the Titans be keeping tabs on?

Great question. It’s really hard to just point one player out in particular from the other 31 teams, because you’re just not really sure who will make the team and who will get cut. We know this though, Jon Robinson is not afraid to make a move. He will be watching the waiver wire when players are cut from 90 to 53, now. Because a guy who you think may be a lock for the Titans roster, may be getting cut and JR will sign a player who you have never heard of. He is an incredible evaluator of football. That’s the way he is and how he will always be.
Even if Murray stays healthy all year, what are the chances that Henry just outplays him and steals to starting RB job?

0%. Not a chance. It has been known since Derrick Henry was drafted that this is DeMarco Murray‘s backfield. Derrick knows that too. He is only coming into his 2nd professional season and he gets to back up and learn from an All-Pro. I would just be happy at that fact. Would it be nice to see Henry get the ball more? You can guarantee that happens. DeMarco is turning 30 this season and his usual carries per game will decrease as Derrick is going to get a lot more work. Derrick is going to make a lot of plays for this team over the course of his career, but not more than DeMarco, right now. Murray is in his prime and still has a few more good seasons left in him. The Titans are in a great spot with their running backs. No need to rush anything.
