Ian Rapoport reports that the Tennessee Titans have agreed to a $2 million raise for Derrick Henry, per a source.
Henry's slated salary has been increased to 14 million, making him the highest paid RB this season.
His salary has increased by $2 million and will jump to 12 million next year.
The Tennessee Titans gave Henry an $8.4 million raise for 2020,
which is basically a $5 million guarantee for the season.
A foot fracture in 2021 kept Henry from playing nine games, but he played in the Titans' only playoff game of that year.
He didn't play as well as he usually does.
Before sustaining an injury, Henry was on his way to another 300+ carry campaign.
In eight games he generated 937 yards and 10 TDs on 219 carries.
Despite missing nine games, Henry still finished in the top 10 in the NFL in rushing yards, carries, and rushing TDs.
In 2021 he led the league with 117.1 yards per game.
Football players are always coaches and teachers on the field, but Haskins can help Henry off the field by taking some of his tote-share.
