Derrick Henry saw firsthand the positive impact that Ryan Tannehill had on the Tennessee offense last season.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Henry’s production took off when Tannehill took over for Marcus Mariota under center as the Titans made a run to the AFC title game.

So it’s understandable that Henry, who’s set to be a free agent himself, supports his quarterback even in the swirl of rumors that has had Tennessee as a possible landing spot for Tom Brady as he prepares to hit free agency for the first time in his NFL career.

Asked about the idea of the Titans signing Brady, Henry showed loyalty to Tannehill, who is also set to be a free agent next month.

“I would think: Why isn’t Ryan Tannehill good enough?” Henry told the Bussin’ With The Boys podcast via Bleacher Report.

“He can still play,” Henry continued regarding Brady. “Obviously, age doesn’t matter for him, he’s still playing at a high level, but my question would by: Why ain’t Ryan good enough, you know?”

Tannehill and the Titans knocked Brady’s Patriots out of the postseason with a Wild Card Weekend win in Foxborough last month.

Henry is taking nothing away from Brady’s greatness, but also sounds pretty loyal to his own guy.

“Tom Brady is the GOAT," Henry said. "That is no question. At all. The best of all time. But then, at the same time, I mean, Ryan Tannehill is our quarterback, went to the AFC Championship. Why would we not want Ryan back? Just wanted to clear that up, Tom Brady is the GOAT."
