Titans' Derrick Henry: Eyeing Zeke's contract
Henry said last week on "The Rich Eisen Show" on Fox Sports Radio that Ezekiel Elliott's six-year, $90 million contract is "the floor" for what he'll be seeking this offseason.
To be fair, Eisen asked a leading question and Henry merely agreed. There are a slew of teams with enough cap space to hand the 26-year-old a contract similar to Elliott's, but recent history mostly shows buyer's remorse with regard to long-term deals for running backs. Henry has one major advantage over Todd Gurley, Devonta Freeman and other positional counterparts: he averaged just 180 touches over his first three seasons before his count ballooned to 409 (including playoffs) in the final year of his rookie contract. Henry made it clear his preference is to stay with the Titans, though he presumably won't be thrilled if that happens via the franchise tag.
