Perhaps you’ve noticed. We live in a world now where there’s constantly debate between two sides over what athletes should share their opinions about. On one hand, they’re asked to do more and use their platforms to do things that are positive. You’ve seen quite a few Tennessee Titans do that over the years, and that’s one of the reasons why it’s so easy to love this team.

The other side is darker. Constantly, we see venomous and vicious attacks that stem from two reasons: 1. a professional athlete knows he has a voice, and he used it. 2. People who have read or heard his comment didn’t like what he said.

Here’s a translation. People think you’re smarter when they agree with you. That brings us to Derrick Henry.

The Tennessee Titans’ biggest star lights up social media.

If you’re a King Henry fan, you’ve no doubt seen him light up the Twitterverse during May’s third full week. First, we caught a glimpse of an amazing workout thanks to Overtime. Second, we saw his recruiting pitch. Nope, this Julio Jones thing isn’t going away.

There are plenty of arguments on why it shouldn’t (and why it should). Here’s one that’s relevant only to what goes on during a Tennessee Titans football game. Corey Davis was lost in free agency, and yes, the Titans tried to compensate for that by adding Dez Fitzpatrick and Josh Reynolds to the offense. Respectfully, neither of those guys is Julio Jones from a talent standpoint.

Then again, who is? In order to find guys in his class, we have to bring up the game’s megastars (DeAndre Hopkins, Davante Adams, Tyreek Hill).

Henry, without question the Tennessee Titans biggest star, took to Twitter and dropped his thoughts on what he feels about the possibilities. Let’s just say he raised a few eyebrows and made a few fans of the two-tone blue crack a smile (or drop their jaws).

You’re free to agree or disagree. In all honesty, the Titan Sized staff is split on this one, but here’s what we all can agree on. The King has earned the right to flex his muscle (both figuratively and literally) and make his suggestions on what he’d like to see from the Titans. The rest of us will just have to wait and see how this plays out.
