ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Titans are not expected to reach a long-term agreement with franchise-tagged RB Derrick Henry by Wednesday's deadline.
Henry signed his $10.3 million tender on April 2. No deal would greatly enhance the odds that Henry is allowed to walk in free agency next spring, as another franchise tag would be getting close to cost prohibitive for a running back. It did happen with Le'Veon Bell in Pittsburgh, though that's when the back ended up sitting out the entire season. Since he has already signed his tender, Henry has major financial incentive to report on time. 9:01 am (EST)
- The Titans are open to signing a new deal with franchise-tagged RB Derrick Henry prior to the July 15 deadline, but "no extension is on the verge of happening," according to Titans Insider Terry McCormick.
- Speaking Thursday, Titans GM Jon Robinson insisted the team was "working toward" a long-term agreement with Derrick Henry.
- Titans OC Arthur Smith said Derrick Henry's workload for this upcoming season "depends on how games go." All Derrick Henry News
