Derrick Henry paid tribute to Kobe Bryant last month when he auctioned his signed NFL 100 football in a bid to donate the money raised by the sale to the Mamba Sports Foundation (now Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation).
Now, according to TMZ, Henry has received his chain that features a serpent-like snake wrapped in Kobe’s famous logo. Furthermore, the custom chain is reported to have approximately 35 carats worth of diamonds. The report further adds that the chain weighs around 120 grams.
Kobe Bryant along with his daughter Gianna and seven others were killed in the tragic helicopter crash near Calabasas, California. The 41-year-old's passing away sent shockwaves across the sporting community with athletes from all over the world mourning his death. One of the most popular faces in the NFL, Patriots star Tom Brady was one of the many NFL stars to pay tribute to Kobe Bryant.
On Monday, Titans used the non-exclusive franchise tag on Henry. That means Henry still can receive offers from other teams, with the Titans able to match or receive two first-round draft picks. According to Over The Cap, the non-exclusive franchise tag for the running back is estimated to cost around $12.3 million.
