Rumors have been all over the place in regard to the Tennessee Titans. Between Derrick Henry and Ryan Tannehill, many speculate a big trade is coming.

The most recent rumors pegged the Philadelphia Eagles as a potential trade partner with the Titans. But since then, they’ve been shut down.

Even so, trade rumors are still swirling around Derrick Henry and the organization.

General manager Ran Carthon finally addresses the rumors involving the Titans’ superstar running back.

According to Cameron Wolfe, the Titans general manager claims “he has not received traded calls” regarding Derrick Henry.

That second sentence in Carthon’s statement is a bit of a dig on Akbar Gbajabiamila’s supposed “breaking” report over the weekend.

Even so, there’s been plenty of smoke around the Titans’ organization. Whether they actually make a trade or not is yet to be determined.

Tennessee has been rumored to trade up, trade back, and move on from Derrick Henry, Ryan Tannehill, or even star safety Kevin Byard.

For that reason, nobody is quite sure what this franchise is going to do during the NFL Draft.

Additionally, it’s important to note that teams say one thing and then do the opposite during this portion of the season.

Although Ran Carthon is a new general manager, the Titans did deal AJ Brown away to the Eagles after spending the entire offseason denying trade rumors.

With that said, keep a watchful eye on the Titans on Thursday night, as anything can happen with a new general manager leading the way.
