The Jacksonville Jaguars will be facing Derrick Henry twice a year for at least one more season.
The Tennessee Titans have reportedly used the franchise tag on Henry, meaning he won’t hit the open market when the legal tampering window opens at 12pm EST today, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Henry will now either sign a one-year, $10,278,000 contract if he agrees to the tag.
Selected in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft, Henry compiled 221 total yards in two meetings against the Jaguars last year for three total touchdowns. He will not be fun to face twice yearly for a Jaguars defense that has lost several members of its once proud defensive line.
