Chris Brown will most likely be the starter coming out of training camp. If he didn't get hurt every other play he would be able to produce some solid numbers in that offense.

I'm sure you know this, but it's just wierd, to see you refer to them by team name and city, and not catch it.


And as if I don't know that! Doh! I don't know what I was thinking. Of course I meant the Tennessee Oilers. :-b

if i draft any of these three turds it's likely to be a late flier on Henry, at least he has an unknown factor going for him...we know what we're getting out of LenWhale (appologies to whoever i stole that from here) and Chris "i make Fred Taylor look like the model of health" Brown

Here's some new info, looks like White's slimming down a bit.

From footballguys.com:

TEN - RB White Down To 240 Pounds

Source: Jim Wyatt, Tennessean

Tennessee Titans 2nd-year RB LenDale White still looks heavy, but he's in a lot better shape than he was a month ago. White said he weighs 240 pounds, a few pounds heavier than what he should carry this fall. He's hit the hole well and looks more confident. Veteran RB Chris Brown's speed will give coaches something to think about, however.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ OUR VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Maybe the Titans signing of Chris Brown was enough to wake White up. It's a great sign to see his weight down which means he's taking the offseason seriously. It's also a possibility that both players end up seeing significant time.

'LenDale White has taken all the reps with the first team at Titans’ camp thus far.'

Running backs compete to replace Henry

Associated Press, Updated 15 hours ago STORY TOOLS:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - LenDale White plans to start at running back for the Tennessee Titans. So does Chris Brown, who held the job himself a year ago. Second-round draft pick Chris Henry also sees himself in the position.

Whoever wins the job steps into a favorable situation. The Titans had the NFL's fifth-best rushing offense in 2006. Travis Henry - now in Denver because Tennessee didn't want to pay an $8.3 million bonus - ran for 1,211 yards on 270 carries with only 13 starts.
"This guy has an opportunity to really help us win some games and do some good things for his own career, so it's going to be pressure," running backs coach Sherman Smith said Sunday.

"Whoever gets it the first week, that doesn't guarantee they have it the next week. They can't just say, 'Oh, I've got the job. I can take it easy.' You've got to perform every week, just like Travis, and Chris Brown when he was a starter, and Eddie George."

Replacing Henry, who averaged 4.5 yards and had six 100-yard rushing games in 2006, can be done. George, the team's all-time leading rusher, casts a longer shadow, with coaches remembering how he never missed practices or games.

"Who's the guy you can trust the most? The guy you know is going to do it consistently and do it the right way?" Smith said. "We don't want to separate ability from your commitment to being in shape to doing the right things. It's got to be a combination of all of them."

When White fell to the Titans with the 45th pick in the 2006 draft, Tennessee officials were pleased, thinking they had found a running back like George to team with top pick Vince Young in the backfield.

Young far exceeded expectations, winning offensive rookie of the year and going 8-5 as a starter.

White? The running back who scored a record 57 touchdowns at Southern California didn't start once as a rookie, was deactivated for three games and had 61 carries for 244 yards.

He didn't help himself after Travis Henry's release by needing to lose some extra pounds and missing a couple weeks of minicamps with a sore hamstring. He said people don't know the whole truth.

"The good thing now is everything's healthy. I'm practicing like every down is my last down, you know. I'm just playing football. ... I'm doing everything to show my teammates and my coaches I'm in it for the battle," he said.

White's struggles prompted the Titans to draft Chris Henry out of Arizona with the 50th pick overall.

They gambled on the player seen as a combine phenom for his 4.40-second time in the 40-yard dash. He had only 269 carries for 892 yards in college, but the Titans checked him out thoroughly and believe he was hurt by coaching changes.

The Titans also signed Brown to a one-year contract, bringing him back in June even though he lost the starting job after the fourth game last season.

"I've got a lot to go out and prove to myself and a lot of other people," Brown said.

It is hard to count on Lendale at all. I am sure they want him to be the guy tho. It's not like Chris Brown has been bad really he just gets hurt so much you can't count on him at all. I wouldn't be surprised to see Lendale on 1st and 2nd and Brown in a thrid down/situational role

Puzzle starts to fit

Crowded backfield

The bet here is that White will win the starting job, while Chris Brown serves as the third-down back. Rookie Chris Henry is athletic but still has a ways to go.

White said he weighs 240 pounds, a few pounds heavier than what he should carry this fall. He's hit the hole well and looks more confident. Brown's speed will give coaches something to think about, however.

Titans see potential at three key positions
Younger players must step up now

RB LENDALE WHITE
Origin: Second-round draft pick out of USC in 2006.
So far: Appeared in 13 games as a rookie with 61 carries for 244 yards and no TDs.
Expectation: Improve work ethic at practice, stay fit and healthy, and establish himself as the lead running back.
Chow says: "That's the guy you have to really count on. I think he has to mature and grow up and be ready to take 250 carries if he's going to be the guy. That's why everybody is harping on him to get into shape and on and on. It's a tough position to play."

I love how none of you know anything about Lendale White. You say he went into draft season overweight? He weighed in 15 pounds lighter than what he weighed in the national championship game against Texas (one of his greatest performances).

Lendale will start at Tennessee and be one of the premier backs in the league by seasons end. Believe that.
