He needs to be extended. If they can't reach an agreement, it's going to be a problem this year. 

 

Maybe, but there's always the draft if Henry is going to be big headed about it. He should look at what happened with Le'Veon Bell and Melvin Gordon if he wants a good view of what his future looks like.

 

If the Titans offer him a good deal, even if it's not some monster record-breaking contract, he'd be wise to take it.

It's pretty obvious they are going for the 2nd tier type of contract(8 or 9 mill) and Henry likely wants something closer to Elliott. He flat out said he wanted an Elliott deal earlier in the off season. 

 

Well ok but that doesn't help for this thread.  My choice changes depending on the terms of a deal to extend him.

Your not gonna replace Henry in the draft.

Replacing that production will fall on multiple players..mainly tannehill.

Should have made Henry a good offer and then if he didn't sign let him test the market.

Should've tagged Conklin and traded him

Problem is there is always going to be some team with more CAP space than sense that would over pay Henry.

You can always trade Henry now that he is tagged if ti came to that.

If Henry isn't playing for this team then there will be a huge step backwards. Theres no way to replace him, Conklin, Casey, and Ryan while also losing some depth players like Woodyard. This means Tannehill is going to be expected to carry the team and he will most likely revert back to Dolphins level of play. Then people are going to bash the move to resign him. Its going to be a cascading effect of turmoil. This is not turning out to be a good offseason so far.

JRob knows how valuable Henry is which is why he used the tag on him.  The hope now is to get Henry to agree to a little less and sign him long term.  

As for Tannehill reverting back it depends on who would be taking Henry's place if we did have to go without him.

There is nobody that can take his place currently. Nobody in the draft and no available back on the market.

OK so how much should we pay him?  What is the limit?  I agree he is a top dog but Jrob doesn't want to throw a blank check at him either.

Even if he plays out the tag we have next year to worry about.  We don't want to play without him but have to prepare for that possibility.

My main point anyway was we had Lewis backing him up so the difference was significant.  If we could find another RB that doesn't take us from the mountain top to the bottom of a mine shaft we can still function as an offense.

The paradox here is that the earlier the Titans draft a RB, the more leverage they have over Henry.  The later they draft a RB, the more leverage Henry has.  Personally, I'd draft 2 RBs, one probably in the 2nd (maybe even the 1st, depending on how things fall) and another in the 7th with one of the three picks.

 

Titans can't afford to give Henry contract leverage with a weak #2 RB where he can hold out to start the season but come in on time to get an accrued season.

You guys always have a great grasp of the numbers, so I am sure there's a reason for not wanting to get Henry under a decent contract.  No Player wants to play under the tag.  We just got RT signed, everybody happy.  The possibility of the Titans repeating last season with RT and X RB are very slim.  We could get Swift or Taylor, let one of them start the season if Henry holds out.  That puts us at 13M at the RB position.  We can get the other players we need in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.

 

At 13M-14M the Titans would be set at RB.  Smart.  The Titans would be spending way less than a lot of teams did in 2019 at RB, not bad for a combo of Henry and Swift/Taylor, plus FB/backups.  By comparison  Houston-17M  Rams-20M  Patriots 17M  JETS-19M  49ers-21M  We'll have the NFL Rushing Leader and we are paying him less than backs not as good.  We march into the playoffs and Happy Henry will do the rest.  Not bad.

No, Robinson should not overpay when he can replace the production at the fraction of the cost.  Not to mention nobody knows what the Titans offered nor what Henry's demands are.

I did say if they are within a couple of mil.  Is that hard to understand?

You are also a moron if you think we can replace Henry's production.  If we do use a draft pick to get a RB that means we have once less quality draft pick to use on another position.  Maybe someone can help you look up what FA RBs are available as well.
