Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry has less than a week to sign a long-term contract, or he will play the 2020 season under the franchise tag. Titans head coach Mike Vrabel stressed Thursday, July 9, deal's like these take time and patience is needed on both sides. 'Derrick signed his franchise tender, he's under contract,' Vrabel said. '... Having been involved with the NFL for a lot of years, getting deals done is about being patient, hopefully keeping them private and confidential. So I'm going to try to respect that, and understand that we love Derrick and he understands how important he is to our football team. Again, his leadership that grew last year, I'm looking forward, I know our team is looking for more of that this year.'

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry is the only running back in the league with at least 500 carries since 2017 to average at least four yards after contact, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: It shouldn't come as a shock that a 247-pound back tends to fall forward after contact, but Henry is special in that he usually powers through contact and has explosiveness to go the distance when he has the opportunity. Even though he has already been a league four years, he has only 888 career touches. Despite his relative lack of involvement in the passing game, Henry should be a solid first-round pick in the majority of fantasy leagues this summer.

Huddle Up: This is reassuring, since there may have been enough speculation to the contrary to make fantasy footballers nervous. Look for Henry to be rumbling as a No. 1 fantasy back on Sundays, provided we have football games in which he can rumble.
