DeMarco Murray, who shared a backfield with Derrick Henry for two seasons, believes the younger running back can be "the guy" for the Tennessee Titans.

The Titans parted ways with Murray this offseason, signing Dion Lewis in free agency.

"I think Derrick's a smart guy. He's a fast guy, very physical, athletic, and now that I'm not there I think he can hone in on being the guy," Murray said. "And if they use him the right way and if he can consistently be the every down back, I think he has a great future, a bright future."

The Titans typically used Murray as the No. 1 and Henry as the No. 2.
