Tennessee Titans listening to trade offers for Derrick Henry
Derrick Henry has been the identity of the Tennessee Titans’ offense and the face of their franchise for seven years now. His list of accolades is beyond staggering, yet Henry finds himself in a position where he may be on the move this offseason.
During his time in Nashville, Henry was the NFL Offensive Player of the year, First and Second-team All-Pro and a two-time NFL rushing yards and touchdown leader. This doesn’t even include his resume with the Alabama Crimson Tide where Henry was a Heisman Trophy winner, unanimous All-American and a College Football Playoff National Champion.
Unfortunately, the reality is that Henry will likely be traded as the Titans are looking to rebuild the franchise after a few stagnant years and the move would save the Titans $6.3 million in cap space. Henry is 29 now, and his yards per carry dropped a full yard from 5.4 in 2020 to 4.4 in 2022. It makes sense for the Titans to move off the aging running back, but there will be a heavy market will be interested in Henry’s services.
At 6-foot-3 and just shy of 250 pounds there are no alternatives to Henry, he is one of a kind. Plus, the move might actually be a great thing as it could put Henry in a win-now situation that will demand much less from him a game than the Titans did.
