An eye-popping report came Monday on the Tennessee Titans and Derrick Henry.

Henry, a former second-round pick of the 2016 NFL Draft, has been the heartbeat of the Titans.

He’s recorded four 1,000+ yard rushing seasons in seven years, including a career-high of 2,027 rushing yards in 2020. As a University of Alabama alum, Henry is a two-time NFL rushing champion (2019, 2020). He’s earned three Pro Bowl nods, an NFL Offensive Player of the Year honor (2020), and first-team All-Pro recognition (2020). The 6-foot-3, 247-pounder sets Tennessee’s offense in motion and is one of the most dominant backs in the league. Mike Silver of Bally Sports reported that the Titans are shopping Henry around. The organization is interested in trading its valuable weapon for more pieces.

Several teams will line up to make a deal for Henry.

The 2015 Heisman Trophy winner is what a few programs are missing from potentially being a Super Bowl team.
