NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Time and time again, as Derrick Henry stands behind the podium, someone takes a crack at a legacy question.

“I’m sure those guys whose names I’ve been mentioned with probably did the same when they played, focus on right now, focus on how I can be better and focus on this team,” he said. “And that’s my focus every day. It’s having tunnel vision… not worrying about anything outside of anything we have going on here.”
