This does not make Henry the NFL’s highest-paid running back. The contract’s $12.5 annual value puts it fifth, behind Christian McCaffrey, Ezekiel Elliott, Le’Veon Bell, and David Johnson.
As recently as this morning, no deal was expected between Henry and the Titans. The two sides kept working, though, and the 26-year-old will be staying with Tennessee for a while longer as a result.
