Henry's 2019 season ended on Sunday, with a Titans loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship. Coming off the loss, his mind isn't in the future. He's going through the process of being one game short of making it to the Super Bowl.
“Throughout the whole season, you have to stick together through all the adversity,” Henry said, via ESPN.com. “We have a lot of great guys in the locker room. It’s football you know the locker room is going to change. Right now, we just lost a game. I am not even thinking about no contracts or things like that. When that time comes, I am sure it will get worked out.”
Henry had a pedestrian game for the Titans against the Chiefs. The fourth-year tailback's hot streak ended in Kansas City, as he rushed for 69 yards and a touchdown on 3.6 yards per carry in the Titans loss. Much of his lack of stats came from Tennessee playing from behind for the entirety of the second half.
Henry led the NFL in rushing in 2019, as he tallied 1,540 yards and 16 touchdowns on 303 rushes, good for 5.1 yards per carry. Though his legs aren't exactly fresh — considering his massive amount of carries — he should be a coveted free agent in the offseason, as his rushing abilities were the catalyst to the Titans' surprising success in 2019.
Barring a change of mind, the Titans are the odds-on favorites to re-sign Henry.
