Chris Johnson says he’s downright jealous of Derrick Henri … story TMZ Sports The Titans running back will FEAST in 2021 after the Julio Jones Trade!!
“I wish I could have played there when we had that GM,” said the former Tennessee half-back. “They do what they have to do to win games.”
As to why CJ2K sees Henry explode… Johnson says it’s simple – with Julio and AJ Brown now on the outside, Chris says it’s not possible for the defenses to just grab Derrick.
“There’s no way to put 8.9 in the box on Henry,” Johnson tells us. “You have Julio on the outside. You have AJ on the other side. So you can’t stack the box or something like that.”
“It’s like, man, this is crazy.”
It’s a scary scene to think about – especially for AFC South teams – because Henry was ALREADY a beast in 2020.
The 27-year-old monster ran for 2,027 yards, 17 touchdowns AND added 114 receiving yards.
But, Johnson sees that things are going even better for Derrick with Julio on the team… telling us, “I wish they had made them move when I was there.”
“You love this move,” Chris said of the successful trade. “You don’t want to keep running against 8 and 9 in the box. You don’t want to do that.”
Johnson – who incidentally opens a chain of Coffees in Florida that he hopes he can compete with Starbucks one day – says the move officially makes the Titans real contenders in 2021 for the Lombardi Trophy.
“Everything looks good on paper,” Johnson said. “We have to go out there and prove it.”
