The Tennessee Titans are still undecided on re-signing Derrick Henry, but one of his teammates is pushing for him to come back next season. In an appearance on NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport’s podcast, Rashaan Evans made the case for Henry to return to the Titans in 2020.

“That’s my dude. We’ve been playing with each other in college,” Evans said via Ian Rapoport. “We’ve played together in the league. To continue that chemistry, to continue that little ritual of having two Bama guys on the same team, to be able to do the things that we’ve been doing, I feel like it’s: What other decision do you have to make to extend that man? I’m really looking forward and excited to him being able to get paid, to get paid for all the great things that he’s done for the organization. It’s definitely due to him.”

With Henry as the focal point of the offense in 2019, the Titans were able to advance to the AFC Championship Game. While Tennessee fell short of the Super Bowl, Henry recorded a career-high 1,540 rushing yards and 16 rushing touchdowns this season.

Despite being a vital piece to the offense, Henry is likely looking to become one of the highest-paid running backs in the NFL. As a result, Tennessee is hesitant on signing him to a long-term deal —and for good reason.

In recent seasons, teams have struggled to succeed after signing their running back to a lucrative contract. For instance, the Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Rams have faltered after paying Ezekiel Elliott and Todd Gurley.

Without a doubt, Evans isn’t the only player on the Titans that wants Henry back next season. At the same time, there’s a business side to the NFL that could end with Henry departing in free agency.
