One of the biggest stories of the off-season was runningback DeMarco Murray making the switch from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Tennessee Titans.

Things haven't gone very well for Murray since his incredible 2014 season where he was the top rusher in the NFL.

A comeback year?

Murray had the biggest year of his career with the Dallas Cowboys in 2014 but followed it up with a sub par year in 2015 with the Eagles.

He went from 1845 yards with the Cowboys to 702 yards with the Eagles and now he is hoping for a big year in Tennessee.

With OTAs now well under way for NFL teams, there are a lot of eyes on the Titans as they prepare for what could be a breakout year for them.

Tennessee made headlines this off-season when they traded away the number one overall pick in the draft to the LA Rams and now everyone is curious to see if it was a good decision.

The Titans made a splash in their backfield this off-season by signing Murray and drafting Alabama prospect Derrick Henry.

But Titans head coach Mike Mularkey has already been impressed by Murray.

"Even without pads on, those were cuts he wasn't going to get touched on. It was going to be an explosive run. You can tell when a play is going to work and not work." - Mularkey on Murray

Mularkey wasn't the only one impressed with Murray since his arrival in Nashville, his new quarterback Marcus Mariota was also filled with praise for the former Eagles star.

"To have someone of that talent back there, it will not only open a lot of run-game stuff, but also play-action stuff and passing game. It will really make our team that more dimensional."

Another tough year

2016 could be a crucial year for the Titans who suddenly find themselves in a very packed AFC South with the Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars and Houston Texans all set for interesting years.

The Jaguars have spent a lot of money to strengthen their team this year while the Texans did everything they could to add to their offensive weaponry.

The Colts had one of the most disappointing years of any team in 2015 after being tipped for a Super Bowl appearance but then not even making the post-season.

2016 needs to be different for Indianapolis and they will be hoping that they can keep quarterback Andrew Luck healthy throughout the season.
