Titans give Derrick Henry a raise for 2022

Matthew Berry and Jay Croucher discuss when is the right time to get off the train in fantasy with veterans Derrick Henry, Travis Kelce, Keenan Allen and Russell Wilson.

Titans running back Derrick Henry had outperformed his contract. So the Titans have given Derrick Henry a raise.

He has received a $2 million bump for 2022, PFT has confirmed. Instead of earning $12 million in base salary, he gets a $9 million signing bonus, a $4 million base salary, and $1 million in 46-man per-game roster bonuses.

The hitch is obvious. He needs to suit up in every game to get the full $2 million in new money. Half of the amount hinges on his ability to avoid injury, which given the position he plays can be unavoidable.

His 2023 salary has dropped by $2 million, from $12.5 million to $10.5 million. However, the thinking is that he’ll get a new deal after the current season, if he keeps playing at a high level.

The deal includes a couple of voidable years, for cap purposes. Otherwise, the contract hasn’t changed. Henry has two years left on the four-year deal he signed in 2020.
