Derrick Henry admitted that Tom Brady is the GOAT, but he doesn't want him to come to Tennessee.
The retreating titan star believes Ryan Tannehill, who led the team to the AFC title game last season, can get them into the Super Bowl. Tannehill and Henry also led the titans to a 20-13 win over Brady and the New England Patriots in the wildcard round.
"I would think: why isn't Ryan Tannehill good enough?" Henry said on the Bussin & # 39; With The Boys podcast when asked about his response if the titans were examining Brady.
"He can still play," said Henry about 42-year-old Brady. "Of course, age doesn't matter to him, he still plays at a high level, but my question would be: why isn't Ryan good enough, you know?
Henry, who led the NFL with 1,540 rushing yards last season, reiterated that his support from Tannehill was not intended to be a blow to the six-time Super Bowl champion quarterback.
"Tom Brady is the goat," said Henry. "This is not a question. Ever. The best ever. But at the same time, I mean, Ryan Tannehill is our quarterback, went to the AFC championship. Why shouldn't we want Ryan back? I just wanted to clarify that, Tom Brady is the GOAT. "
The 31-year-old Tannehill, who is slated to be an unrestricted free agent in March this year, had a rebirth of his career in Tennessee last season. He threw 2,742 yards and completed 70.3 percent of his passes. He also threw 22 touchdowns and only six interceptions.
The 26-year-old Henry makes a free choice this off-season, which could also affect the way the Titans make their quarterback decision.
