    The Tennessee Titans coaching staff knows Derrick Henry is special. DeMarco Murray is, too. The goal is finding a balance to maximize both of their skill sets. 

    Last season, Murray deserved a much larger workload. The veteran running back rewarded the team with 1,287 rushing yardswhich ranked third in the league. 

    Henry only carried the ball 110 times. In fact, 37 running backs received more opportunities. But offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie realizes he has something special in the 247-pound tailback. As such, his role should expand in his second season. 

    “We can’t sleep on the fact that we’re talking about a guy who won the Heisman Trophy. He’s special,” Robiskie said, per ESPN.com’s Cameron Wolfe. “When you see a big man who can be that smooth and fluid, make those jump cuts, have the eyes to see the hole and the feet to get to it, that’s pretty good. He’s looked phenomenal so far this summer.”

    Egos often get in the way when talented backs compete for carries. The Titans offense won’t revolve around a particular runner this fall. 

    “There’s no ‘man’ here,” Robiskie said. “If there’s a guy, it’s Marcus Mariota. We want to have eight guys who when we get them the ball, they’re going to score.”
