There's only one person on earth who can say they ran for over 2,000 yards in a season during high school, in college, and in the NFL and his name is former Alabama and current Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry. The running back position may devalued in today's NFL but the Titans certainly knows Derrick's value to team as he shouldered the load for them since joining the team in 2016. The Titans has made the playoffs three times since drafting Henry with the 45th pick in 2016.

On Saturday, Derrick Henry was named the No. 4 player in NFL on this year's Top 100 Players of 2021. This list was comprised of player rankings done by players from across the league so this shows how respected he is amongst his peers. This isn't Henry's first appearance in the top 10 as last year he finished at No. 10 in the poll.

Jones joins Pro Bowl receiver AJ Brown in the receiving core giving quarterback Ryan Tannehill a dream receiving tandem. With this much fire power on offense, its going to hard to stop the Titans next season.
