The Baltimore Ravens were named a potential trade destination for Tennessee Titans star running back Derrick Henry. The Ravens must explore options at running back after losing J.K. Dobbins for the season with an Achilles injury he suffered in Week 1 against the Houston Texans.
The Ravens have been linked to several running backs. One potential trade idea for the Ravens includes going after another AFC South star running back, Jonathan Taylor, who is disgruntled with the Indianapolis Colts.
The Titans suffered a rough loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 1. Kristopher Knox with Bleacher Report thinks the Titans could be major sellers before the trade deadline if they continue to lose games to start the year. Knox thinks they could shed quarterback Ryan Tannehill to the New York Jets.
Could the Tennessee Titans send Derrick Henry to Baltimore Ravens?
If they lose their starting quarterback, what’s the point in keeping their aging star Henry? Knox named Henry as a potential trade piece to the Ravens this season:
“Although the 29-year-old is getting up there in age for his position, he’s still a legitimate difference-maker. He topped 1,500 rushing yards in 2022 and racked up 119 scrimmage yards in Week 1.
If the Titans continue losing, no one should be shocked to see Henry land on the trade block.
Because of his age and contract status, the three-time Pro Bowler isn’t a sensible target for rebuilding teams. However, he’d be a premier option for those looking to contend now.
The Ravens would be one potential landing spot with Dobbins out for the year. The Dolphins could also emerge as a suitor if their bid for Taylor doesn’t pan out.”
Henry could make the Ravens’ backfield lethal in the postseason. Imagine a front seven needing to account for a speedy Lamar Jackson and thunderous Henry?
The Ravens have a legit wide receiver corps this season with veteran threat Odell Beckham Jr. and rookie Zay Flowers. But would the Ravens, who have just six 2024 draft picks, be willing to give up precious capital for a running back near 30?
