Tennessee Titans’ running back, Derrick Lamar Henry Jr., is making headlines for his laudable performance against Jacksonville Jaguars as his name is now inscribed in the NFL record book for his record-matching 99-yard touchdown run.
Tony Dorsett was the first one to set the exact same record back in January 1983, playing for Dallas Cowboys against Minnesota Vikings. It is the longest touchdown run in NFL’s history by far.
Henry even managed to earn a staggering 47.8 PPR fantasy point in the very game, which he believes is the best performance that he has put together till date.
Henry, who first showed his talent in the college football playing for the Alabama Crimson Tide, got an enormous leap in his career after he got drafted by the Titans in the second round of 2016’s NFL draft on April 29. Derrick then went on to sign a 4-year contract with the Titans on May 9, 2016. It was a $$5,407,928 contract including a signing bonus that amounted to $2,133,038. Similarly, his annual average salary based on the contract is $1,351,982, whereas, his base salary for 2019 will be $1,187,445.
Also, Henry has put in a lot of hard work to earn the position that he is in today, and his career stats speak volumes in this regard. Henry has a total of 950 snaps playing for Titans and has 414 rush attempts with just 2 Fumbles.
Hope he continues to deliver his best gameplay and also make some more NFL records in the matches to come.
