#Cowboys are taking calls on RBs. While they seem like they want to stand pat, I wonder if they’d make a call on old friend Demarco Murray— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 31, 2017
The short answer here is that the Titans aren’t going to trade DeMarco Murray. Why am I so sure?
- It appears the Titans still don’t trust Derrick Henry on 3rd down. That’s a pretty big deal.
- The Titans have nothing they can count on behind Murray and Henry. Trevor is going to be really mad at me here, but David Fluellen is not an NFL running back. The drop off there is huge. The Titans are very committed to running the football, in case you didn’t know. They can’t afford to be one play away from Fluellen being the feature back.
- Contenders are not trading off pieces for draft picks at the deadline. The Titans are a contender.
So while it’s fun to speculate about the Titans making some big move at the deadline, let’s apply a little common sense to the situation.
