Despite speculation that he could be on the move, Tennessee Titans’ star running back Derrick Henry is not on the trade block.
As you can see in a video shared by ESPN’s Turron Davenport, new Titans’ GM Ran Carthon poured cold water over rumors about the club shopping Henry, using the term “erroneous report.” Carthon added that the two sides “are in a good place.”
The 29-year-old Henry is entering the last season of a four-year, $50 million extension he signed in the 2020 offseason. It’s well-known by now that many big-named running backs decline by the age of 30, but Henry showed no signs of that last season.

The 2020 Offensive Player of the Year and two-time rushing champion finished 2022 with 1,538 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns. Henry was limited to eight games in 2021 because of a foot injury but still finished with 937 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns.
Tennessee is coming off a disappointing 7-10 season, in which they dropped each of their final seven games with the AFC South division crown seemingly locked up. They lost a win-or-go-home game to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 18, and the collapse led to speculation that sweeping changes were coming to Music City.
But Carthon has made it clear that Henry and quarterback Ryan Tannehill are here to stay. So teams hoping to land one or both of those players better not get their hopes up.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
