Derrick Henry isn’t exactly known as a deep threat in the receiving game. We have seen him break multiple long plays off of a handoff but most, if not all, of his work in the receiving game has come close to the line of scrimmage. Yesterday, the Tennessee Titans tweeted out a video of Henry catching a pass deep down the field from Malik Willis:
A lot of people on social media took this as a video about the quarterback. I agree with Zach’s take here:

I don’t really care to debate that throw or the back-up quarterback competition at this point in the summer. There is a long way to go between now and when that decision has to be made. We are going to see A LOT of Will Levis and Willis in the preseason. That will give us the best indication of where those guys are.
This video is about the fact that Henry made a really nice catch down the field. It was a really nice thing to see.
