    Not surprised at all. Just don’t see him as a Titan long term. Don’t get me wrong, I want him to be one. But I just don’t think he is in the teams long term plans.

    Henry embodies what this team wants to be about. We keep hiring coaches that want to be physical, Henry is as physical as they get. And Vrabel is always talking about Henry as a leader.

    Yeah, we have gone through this before. Hope you are right, think you will be wrong.

    Remind me, are your opinions based on RB history on other teams?

    If you by that you mean how the league now values RBs, yes. And I think this team is going emulate the Patriots in many ways when it comes to team building. And that way does not involve paying RBs big money. It also doesn’t involve committing to one style, but being flexible to adapt to a lot of different styles.

    Look at the players on offense, theres a theme.

    JR likes big physical bodies. Everyone in this offense fits a certian style of play. Corey Davis 5th overall pick, big ass WR.
    AJ Brown an even bigger more physical player. Jonnu Smith was traded up to get and hes an animal. Isaiah Wilson is 350lbs.

    And Derrick Henry, a man among boys at RB.

    JR values RBs more than most, we are at the top of the list as far as running the ball goes.

    Henry deserves a long term deal but I understand the concern about RBs and huge contracts...but he's only 26 and a beast, he personifies exactly what the Titans want to be...sign the man

    If we lose Henry next year because we're waiting on Clowney now I'll be pissed

    I doubt Henry getting a deal has anything to do with Clowney. Henry is already counting over $10M against the cap this season with him being on the tag. Signing him to a 3 year deal would likely reduce his cap number for this season.

    My guess is they're just apart on length of the deal. I'm betting he wants something like 4-5 years, and the team only wants 2-3.

    Not a cap expert by any means...But if Clowney wants a one year deal at 14-15 million, with just over 19 what does mean for Henry?

    Signing Henry long term is not a typical JRob move. I wouldn’t get my hopes up.
