See it: Derrick Henry’s gift to Titans offensive linemen
Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry gave a gift to his offensive linemen for their hard work during the 2019 season.
It takes a village to win a rushing title, and nobody knows that better than Tennessee Titans running back, Derrick Henry.
Henry had the best season of his career in 2019, as he posted career-highs in rushing yards and touchdowns. Taking it a step further, Henry also won a rushing title with 1,540 yards, and his 16 rushing touchdowns was tied for the best in the NFL, also.
While Henry’s individual performance was nothing short of outstanding, he also needed help from his offensive linemen, a group that especially excelled during the second half of the season when Henry went on tear.
To show his appreciation for his linemen, Henry gifted the big boys Rolex watches, as Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan shared on Instagram, via A to Z Sports Nashville.
Now that’s a watch!
While offensive linemen don’t always get all the credit they deserve, a good back knows just how important they are to his success — and judging by how expensive that watch looks, there’s no doubt Henry fully realizes that.
Making the playoffs and facing the No. 1 scoring defense in the NFL didn’t stop Henry and the offensive line, either.
King Henry ran right through the New England Patriots in the wild card game to the tune of 182 yards and one touchdown, and as a result his star continues to shine brighter and brighter as he continues to get more and more attention from the national media.
After a brutal start to the season that saw the Titans’ O-line letting up sacks like that was their actual job, the group upfront has done a better job down the stretch of the season in pass protection, but has been absolutely lights out in run blocking.
