NFL reacts to massive Derrick Henry trade info

Tennessee Titans General Manager Ran Carthon wants to clarify that the team is not trading Derrick Henry this offseason.

“There’s nothing new to report,” Carthon told ESPN at the NFL league meeting in Phoenix. An incorrect report was released. 

We're good after talking to Todd (France), Derrick's rep. They have nothing fresh to report.”

The Titans reportedly discussed dealing their franchise running back during the NFL Scouting Combine in early March.

Jonathan Jones of CBS Sports denied it. Carthon confirmed it.

No player is sacred in the NFL, but the Titans moving their hero seemed odd. He led the NFL in rushing twice and ran for 1,538 yards and 13 touchdowns last season.

After leading the NFL in carries three of the past four seasons, 29-year-old Henry's high mileage may catch up to him. He still plays well (4.4 yards per carry) and is a Nashville favorite. Henry is doing his usual hard offseason effort, Carthon noted.

The NFL community replied to Carthon's statements with tweets ranging from "trade him" to "the Titans would be crazy to trade him".
