Derrick Henry one of 5 vets who will take a leadership role for Titans
By Will Lomas
Which 5 players can step up and become leaders for Titans?
Wesley Woodyard, Logan Ryan, Delanie Walker, and others meant a lot in the Tennessee Titans locker room in terms of leadership.
However, Jon Robinson and his staff have spent a long time cultivating this roster into a group that has great character from top to bottom.
When someone becomes a vet and when they truly become a leader are hard things to identify. Luckily, there are some players on the Titans roster who have already tried to fill the hole left behind by the leaders that came before them.
So when I went about making this list I tried to figure out which players were on their second contracts (or later) had the talent to lead by example and who would be quickly identified if they made a mistake or a big play.
Not all of them are household names, but fans should know them and recognize what they do for the team, just like their teammates should.
So I found five players that I believe could be stepping into bigger leadership roles this season and I will start with one of the best players at his position in the NFL: Taylor Lewan.
