  • Best season: 2006

  • 78 receiving yards

Travis Henry is a lot of things to a lot of people. His on-field production is largely forgotten because so many people think about other things first.

Substance abuse issues gave him trouble in the NFL. But what made him famous and memorable to a lot of people who didn’t pay attention to his play was that he reportedly has 11 children by 10 different women.

That being said, this isn’t what this list is about. This list is about finding the best players to ever play running back for the Oilers/Titans franchise.

His 2006 NFL season was amazing, amassing the stat line listed above. What is even more impressive about that 2006 campaign is that he put up those numbers without playing in two games. If he had played in those games at that pace, he would have gotten nearly 1,400 rushing yards and eight rushing touchdowns.

It is rare for a player to have a season as good as that. He did it at the age of 28 seemingly out of nowhere, as he hadn’t even combined for half of that in his previous two seasons combined.

However, he was a huge part of what would be the last successful stretch of Titans seasons before the implosion in 2010 and the depression of 2014 and 2015.
