Derrick Henry has had a memorable eight-year career with the Tennessee Titans, which was the same team that drafted him in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
By the looks of things, however, it appears that the All-Pro running back’s time in Tennessee has now come to an end.
Tennessee Titans’ Playoff Hopes Ended After Loss Vs. Texans
Heading into Sunday’s Week 15 matchup against the Houston Texans, the Titans were still in the running for a playoff spot. That all turned into dust after a heartbreaking 19-16 overtime loss at the Nissan Stadium. Now at 5-9, Tennessee is likely going to finish at the bottom of the AFC South.
In his post-game interview, a dejected Henry got brutally honest with his team’s performance on the day:
“We weren’t great today as a whole,” Henry said, via Turron Davenport of ESPN. “They were the better team today. The credit goes to them. It seemed like they had an answer for everything.”
End of the Line
Henry, who is going to become a free agent at the end of this season, also spoke out about his future in Tennessee — one that appears to be non-existent:
“Yeah, definitely today you had that feeling [that it could be the end of my career with the Titans],” said Henry, . “I had hope of kind of slipping in there [the playoffs], and then being eliminated with three games left. I’ve been here my whole career. Definitely wanted to go out strong, which that isn’t the case.”
Henry recorded just nine yards against the Texans on 16 carries, which was one of his worst performances not only this season but arguably throughout his Titans tenure.
Be that as it may, Henry is still hoping to go out swinging if these are indeed his final few games for Tennessee:
“I’ll try to give it my all in these last three games and leave it all on the field,” Henry said.
