Titans RB Derrick Henry opens up about if he’s getting too many carries
Derrick Henry had a phenomenal season as he led the league in rushing yards (1,540) and helped lead the Tennesee Titans to the AFC Championship Game. However, his body took a lot of tackles this year as he led the league in rushing attempts (303).
In a recent interview with Jim Wyatt of the Titans, Henry expresses that his Pro Bowl teammates keep asking him about his amount of carries.
“They ask me how my body feels,” Henry said. “They’re complimenting me on the season I had, the season the team had, but they also kid me about how much I carried the ball this year. They say, ‘Man, you must be beat up. How’s your body? You sure got the ball a lot.’ “I tell them I feel fine, I feel good. I wish I was still going actually.”
Henry is set to become an unrestricted free agent during this upcoming offseason. His historic postseason run has certainly increased his market value for free agency. Although many teams will be interested in signing him this offseason, he has expressed that he would like to resign with the Titans.
“In a perfect world, I wish everybody could come back, and we could make another run at it and end on the right note,” he said. “I am definitely hungry, not only to get better myself, but to win a Super Bowl. “My goal every year is I always want to be better than the year before. So that’s what I’ll be striving for heading into next season. I want to do everything I can do to help the team win a Super Bowl.”
Resigning with the Titans will mean more rushing attempts and having another heavy workload this upcoming season.
