He may have the best stiff arm in the National Football League, but Derrick Henry is not the right person to pick a good burger place.

At least, it is the thought from one of his teammates for the Tennessee Titans.

William Compton, a linebacker, is in his second stint with the team. He signed a one-year contract in 2018 and then came back on August 27 of this year, prior to getting released on Monday. Compton has been re-signed and is now on the practice squad.

When he is not doing the Bussin’ With The Boys podcast with his teammate, Taylor Lewan, he’s adding his two cents into the locker room conversations after practice. According to Compton, players got into a debate about which restaurant has the best burger. The usual suspects in the topic include In-N-Out, Whataburger, Five Guys and Hugh Baby’s (Nashville), but one player decided to throw Wendy’s into the debate. Henry was that player and per Compton, he said Henry believes Wendy’s has the best burger in America.

In taking Henry on his offer, Compton went to Wendy’s after practice and ordered a No. 1 (Dave’s Single) but made it a double.

After complimenting the heftiness of the burger, he then records himself eating the burger. By the time Compton is in his fourth chew, he turns the camera around and demands that Henry takes himself to Five Guys.

“I won’t disrespect Wendy’s,” Compton said. “It is a solid fast food burger. But this ain’t… this is not messing with any of the others we are talking about. Throw Shake Shack in there. Shake Shack is better than this. I’m gonna eat it cause I’m gonna eat it, but Derrick this is not messing with Five Guys. This is not messing with In-N-Out, this is not messing with Whataburger, this is not messing with Shake Shack. I don’t know man. Y’all need to figure this s*** out. Diet starts Monday.”

On Twitter, Compton gave Henry’s burger awareness a 63.

Since then, Henry has turned to social media to get the people’s thoughts on which food venues have the best burgers.

Well, the former national champion and 2015 Heisman Trophy winner has something to work on.

Henry has to master picking the right burger places.
