The heart of the Tennessee Titans has arrived for mandatory minicamp.

Derrick Henry did not participate in OTAs or other involuntary practices, but the two-time NFL rushing champion made it to Saint Thomas Sports Park on Monday to start minicamp. According to a report from Turron Davenport, there were concerns that he would hold out of minicamp in hopes of getting some security for his contract next year. Henry, who was selected in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft, is a three-time 1,000+ yard rusher. He became the eighth running back in the history of the league to collect 2,000+ yards rushing in 2020, totaling 2,027 yards and 17 touchdowns. Henry earned NFL Offensive Player of the Year, first-team All-Pro, and a Pro Bowl selection for his efforts. He’s guided the Titans to AFC South Division titles in 2020 and 2021.

The 6-foot-3, 247-pounder is the engine behind Tennessee’s offense.
