Derrick Henry will enter his 6th NFL season on the heels of being named the league’s offensive player of the year in 2020, a year that saw him become the 8th player in NFL history to record 2,000 or more rushing yards and lead the league in rushing for the 2nd year in a row.

The Tennessee Titans start is undoubtedly the best running back in football right now, and he and Titans fans hope that the best is yet to come. And for the 3rd straight year, he was named to the NFL Top 100, compiled by a vote among the league’s players. After just sneaking onto the list before the 2019 season at No. 99, he rose to No. 10 prior to 2020. He’s in the top 10 for the 2nd straight year—the lone SEC player in the top 10—with the league releasing those players alphabetically on Sunday ahead of its unveiling of the exact finishing order on Saturday on the NFL Network.

“It’s always great to have that respect from your peers,” said Henry on Monday, according to The Tennessean Titans beat writer Ben Arthur. “For them to look at me as one of the top players in the league, I greatly appreciate it. There are so many great players. For me to be mentioned, I’m honored and thankful.”

Henry was a full participant in Titans training camp on Monday for the first time this preseason, describing the day as “knocking some of the rust off”.

“It’s good to be back practicing and getting in the swing of things,” he added.

The Titans open their season against the Arizona Cardinals on Sept. 12.
