Titans | Payton Wants Shot at Playing

Jessica Hopp, of the Tennessean, reports Tennessee Titans RB Jarrett Payton has become a smarter, faster running back through his NFL Europe experience according to head coach Jeff Fisher. Just because the team added RB Travis Henry during the offseason does not mean Payton's chances in Tennessee have been eliminated. Fisher said the team wants to give him every opportunity to do things on special teams for the team this year because they feel he can be a difference maker. Special teams aside, Payton would still like to make some noise as a running back. He said after his year in NFL Europe, he feels he can play somewhere and would prefer not to be a practice squader again this year.
