Someone on the Tennessee Titans trolled former Alabama running back Derrick Henry by putting a pro-Auburn sign on his back during Tennessee Titans practice.
The rivalry between Alabama and Auburn is alive and well in the Tennessee Titans locker room, as running back Derrick Henry found out.
Auburn and Alabama are set to meet on Saturday in the annual Iron Bowl, which will be a home game for the Tigers.
During Titans practice on Thursday, the former Crimson Tide running back was seen with a pro-Auburn sign on his back that read “War. Damn. Eagle.” on it.
Of course, Henry would never wear such a thing being that he played for Alabama, so that means someone on the team was having a little fun with him.
Who might that be? Well, I have one idea.
Auburn alum and Titans linebacker Daren Bates has been messing with teammates during the week leading up to the big game.
First, he was blasting music around linebacker Rashaan Evans, who played for Alabama, while he was talking to the media on Wednesday.
Then on Thursday, Bates was at it once again, this time blasting the “Kick Six” call from 2013 around Henry when he was talking to the media before practice.
This man is relentless, but I guess we can’t knock him for showing his undeniable pride for Auburn around his teammates. Not to mention, these trolls are pretty funny and keep things loose around the locker room.
Bates was a member of the Tigers from 2009 through 2012. Henry played for Alabama from 2013 through 2015, and he won the Heisman Trophy in his junior year. Evans was a member of the Crimson Tide from 2014 through 2017.
In the end, all that will matter is who wins the Iron Bowl this year, but you can be assured that Evans and Henry will have their own fun with Bates if Auburn loses to Alabama.
