Big money is coming his way after this playoff run. Only way the Titans can afford to lose him is by drafting an elite back.
I understand the one side ... But I just cannot visualize a scenario where Henry isn't re-signed to the Titans. Dude is playing his way into the franchise Mount Rushmore.

I agree with you, but the money will be interesting. I can't imagine him playing on a franchise tag, so it has to be a lot of guaranteed money

This is the Henry that everyone envisioned he would be. Just needed a coach that would give him the 25-35 carries a game. Guys a bulldozing load that’s a nightmare to tackle and wears on the defense. The things that win you superbowls in the real nfl

Massive internal debate right now ... Is he a sell high? Or a ride and die? Everyone saying his value will never be higher and that he won't last, but why won't he last? Champions aren't made from selling high end RB1s in their prime, surely. I would love to hear from someone with a strong opinion. I just think this guy is a freak and I don't know why he has to hit a wall when he turns 28. This was the first season in the NFL when he carried a full load.

He's turned into one of my favorite players in the NFL over the course of like 6 weeks.

This is surely naive, but Henry's team 1st and honest deflection of all his well-earned praise suggest to me that he won't rake the team over the coals for $$. Sure he'll want and likely get big $$ from the Titans, but this one feels different than the other recent elite RB contracts - Zeke, DJ and even Gurley.

BTW - how does DLF have Henry as RB14 in current dynasty rankings? Not like he snuck up on anybody.

He's got a good few massive seasons left in him, IMO. You don't trade him unless you get proper value. If you are any sort of contender, it's not really in your interest to move him for anything less than how you value him, as he is a true difference maker, and tends to be at his best late in the year (except for week 16 this year, damn! LOL).
