Derrick Henry bids farewell to Titans fans as star running back produces vintage performance
Derrick Henry on Sunday looked like the vintage running back that became a star in Nashville. The former Alabama running back turned in 19 carries for 153 yards and a touchdown, including a 69-yard run.
After the Tennessee Titans’ 28-20 win on Sunday over the Jacksonville Jaguars, which kept the Jaguars out of the playoffs, Henry spoke to the Titans fans from the field, and thanked them, “for the eight greatest years of my life.”
Henry thanked fans for supporting him through the ups and downs, and he added that he hoped he was an inspiration to kids.
Henry finished with 9,502 yards in his Titans career, which is second behind Eddie George and his 10,009 yards. Henry already topped 1,000 yards coming into Sunday’s game, and that’s his 5th 1,000-yard season in his career, and it’s 5th-best in the NFL.
Henry is a free agent this offseason and all signs have pointed to Henry and the team going their separate ways.
