NFL Free Agency: Tennessee Titans Great Derrick Henry Agrees to Two-Year Deal with Ravens

The Tennessee Titans signed former Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard on Monday, which made Derrick Henry's departure inevitable.

NASHVILLE — Derrick Henry's time with the Tennessee Titans is over.

Henry agreed to a two-year, $16 million dollar deal worth up to $20 million with $9 million guaranteed, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. 

The Titans signed former Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard on Monday, which made Henry's departure inevitable. Titans general manager Ran Carthon signed Pollard to a three-year deal for $24 million.

Henry will now join quarterback Lamar Jackson in the Ravens backfield for a team that made the AFC Championship Game last season. 

After eight seasons, Henry leaves the Titans as the franchise's second-leading rusher all-time. Besides the most formidable stiff arm in the NFL, Henry had:

  • Five seasons of 1,000-plus yards;
  • 90 total touchdowns; 
  • Four Pro Bowls;
  • and one first-team All-Pro honor.

Henry is the fifth Titans free agent to move on to another team. The others are: Sean Murphy-Bunting (Arizona Cardinals), Aaron Brewer (Miami Dolphins), and Denico Autry and Azeez Al-Shaair (Houston Texans).

  • NEW CENTER LLOYD CUSHENBERRY: The Tennessee Titans reportedly will sign Denver Broncos free agent Lloyd Cushenberry, who is expected to pass protection up the middle for quarterback Will Levis. Cushenberry, who is 6-foot-4 and 315 pounds, allowed only one sack in 2023. CLICK HERE
  • NEW CORNERBACK CHIDOBE AWUZIE: Chidobe Awuzie, 28, spent three seasons in Cincinnati, where Titans coach Brian Callahan was offensive coordinator. Pro Football Focus ranked Awuzie as the fourth-best free-agent cornerback available. CLICK HERE
