Las Vegas Raiders linebacker Will Compton shared the story of an inside joke he has with Tennessee Titans running back, Derrick Henry.

During his days with the Tennessee Titans, now Las Vegas Raiders linebacker Will Compton and running back Derrick Henry developed an inside joke with one another.

According to Compton, who shared his story on the Bussin with the Boys podcast he hosts with Titans left tackle, Taylor Lewan, he and Henry’s inside joke consists of the players saying “stud” to one another, and he believes it might have started in the showers in 2018.

Lewan’s reaction to it starting in the showers was priceless, by the way.

In fact, Compton says he tried to do it while the two were at the bottom of a pile during the Titans’ 42-21 Week 14 win over the Raiders. Lewan goes on to say that Henry admitted to him that he almost laughed at Compton’s attempt to rekindle their joke.

Check it out.

After sharing this clip, Henry himself retweeted it with an emoji, which hopefully means The King will be a guest on the podcast in the future and clear this story up.


Stories like this are what makes Bussin’ with the Boys so great — and it’s why Barstool Sports recently picked it up to be part of its podcast network.

Compton played for the Titans in 2018, playing in 12 games. He was a member of the Washington Redskins for the five years prior to that, and was signed by the Raiders during the 2019 campaign.

Hopefully if Henry does decide to join the boys on the podcast, it’ll be as a member of the Tennessee Titans. Henry is going to become a free agent this offseason and could command a hefty salary after proving to be a one-man wrecking crew during the postseason.

Thankfully for Tennessee, they’ll have both the franchise and transition tags at their disposal — on top of signing him to a long-term deal — if a new CBA isn’t agreed upon soon, so it would be awfully difficult for the Titans not to bring Henry back to Nashville in 2020.
