Derrick Henry wants to stay with the Tennessee Titans, Popeyes' chicken sandwich is better than Chick-Fil-A's and he considers himself a good dancer. Those were among the lessons learned when Henry sat down for an AMA on the B/R app Thursday.

Henry is an impending free agent after leading the NFL with 1,540 rushing yards and then almost single-handedly carrying the Titans to an AFC Championship Game berth. The Pro Bowler briefly discussed his plans to stay in Tennessee, along with how it felt to bring the Titans within a game of the Super Bowl in the AMA.

Here is a full transcript of Henry's conversation with fans. 


@Goontar: Are you considering running for governor of Tennessee now that you put us on the map?
