Henry showed up to his press conference today wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with the face of a dog named “Bam Bam,” who is up for adoption in the Nashville area. It’s been a big hit.
“I’m trying to find this dog a home,” he told reporters. “If you want a dog… he’s your guy.”
Quarterback Ryan Tannehill has been a major part of this effort. He and Mars Petcare have pledged $100,000 in adoption fees from Oct. 22-24 for those looking to adopt pets in Nashville and Kansas City.

Tannehill and other Titans have their own dog shirts, each with a different adoptable canine. It’s a pretty great effort that they’re supporting.
Ryan Tannehill has teamed up with @MarsPetcareUS to announce they will cover $100K in adoption fees at local shelters in Nashville and Kansas City this weekend (10/22 – 10/24) to help deserving pets find loving homes.

“I am a dog person, I love dogs, have always had dogs. I have actually had a dog ever since I was a little kid. I can remember going to a shelter when I was five or six years old and picking out our family pet, Freckles. We had him for about 13 years, I think. He was a great dog and part of why I feel great about support pet adoption,” Tannehill said.
Fans and media members on Twitter are all about it.

That would be such a flex as a dog owner. “Yeah, Derrick Henry has and wore a shirt with Bam Bam on it.” https://t.co/vxCfJ8qcFI
