On Twitter, the NFL stars had a field day going over their co-star's performances while making it known that he merited a better reward. His colleague, Trent Brown talked about the situation on his Twitter timeline, writing:
"The fact that the Titans put the tag on their workhorse, the man who put the team on his back week in and week out….really bothers me!!!"
Other NFL stars like Tyrann Mathieu and Roddy White also stated their opinions while echoing Brown's sentiment on Twitter.
Derrick might not be getting a "proper" reward from the Titans, but he was sure not letting that occurrence get in his way when it comes to his tribute to Bryant.
