EXCLUSIVE

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry tells TMZ Sports he's fired up about sharing the backfield with DeMarco Murray ... saying he's a "good guy" and a "great leader." 

The '15 Heisman Trophy winner -- and 2nd round pick of the Titans -- touched down at LAX for an NFL rookie event ... so, we had to ask if he was concerned about competing with DM for the starting job. 

But Henry says there's no hostility -- and he's excited to work with a guy who's already "done such a great job in the NFL."

We also asked if he was excited about all the country music in Nashville ... it's clear, that part might take some adjusting.

Titans' Kendall Wright Baby Mama's Car Repo'd ... After Child Support Demand

EXCLUSIVE

0108_Kendall-Wright_komccoyTennessee Titans star Kendall Wright has serious off-season headaches ... his baby mama is taking him to court for child support, and thinks he's getting revenge by repossessing her car.

In court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, Kortney Michelle Owens-Rader says she has a 5-month-old baby boy with Wright named Kendall Jr. -- and the Titans leading receiver agreed in December to pay her $2,100/month in child support, starting in 2016. 

The docs make it seem like everything's cool between Kortney and Kendall, but sources close to her say that's not the case. We're told Wright had been "taking care" of Kortney -- a singer signed to Floyd Mayweather's record label -- but nothing was on paper.

Cut to last week when, according to our sources, Kortney's 2014 Cadillac XTS -- a gift from Wright in happier times -- was repossessed. We're told Kortney thinks Wright stopped making payments because he was pissed she took him to court.

This probably won't get better ... they're due back in court in a couple of months. We've reached out to Wright's reps, but nothing back yet.

JBJ's not buying the Titans ... these 5 words he swears to you.  

Reports surfaced this week that Bon Jovi would have "considerable interest" in buying the Tennessee Titans -- if they are put up for sale.

FYI -- Bon Jovi was part of group that tried to buy the Buffalo Bills last year and he owned an Arena Football League team back in the day. Plus, there are rumors the current owners of the Titans could be shopping the team around in the very near future. 

But Bon Jovi tells TMZ Sports ... for now, he's not trying to take over the Titans. 

"Rumors of my interest in the Tennessee Titans are nothing more than that. I am not part of any group perusing a team that is not for sale."

Doesn't mean he won't try to buy an NFL team in the future -- but for now, it ain't happening.

EXCLUSIVE

California should call Marcus Mariota ... 'cause he's the man to end long droughts -- according to country music star and ex-QB Sam Hunt, who thinks Marcus is gonna make it rain for the Titans.

On the heels of Mariota becoming the first rookie QB to toss 4 TDs in his first start ... we got Sam -- a huge Titans fan -- and asked him about MM's historic debut.

Hunt played ball at Middle Tennessee State, and was invited to Chiefs camp ... which means his review carries a little more weight than a casual fan. So, is it too soon for Titans faithful to dream about their first postseason since 2008? 

Check out the clip -- Sam seems as down with Mariota as every chick seems to be down with Sam ... which is very, very, down.

Cops say the SUV veered off the road and struck a bunch of trees before it flipped over. Bironas was rushed to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Cops also say there was no evidence of alcohol or drugs. They believe Bironas was heading home ... because the accident occurred less than a mile from his house.
