1. Sign Derrick Henry or Aaron Jones

The Henry buzz has been loud since the beginning of the offseason, and recent reports from Josina Anderson claiming the two parties have mutual interest in one another have only made fans even more excited. Henry and Lamar Jackson in the same backfield would create a hellacious running game.

With big-name backs like Saquon Barkley, Tony Pollard, and Josh Jacobs all signing multi-year contracts this offseason, it's becoming clear that Baltimore will likely need to dip into the eight-figure per year range to sign Henry. If they feel comfortable with that, DeCosta might land a new starting running back.

Will the Baltimore Ravens sign Derrick Henry or Aaron Jones?

The backup plan for Baltimore has to be Jones, who was recently cut loose by the Green Bay Packers after they signed Jacobs to a four-year contract. Forced to split carries for essentially his entire career, Jones and his career 5.0 yards per carry average have amassed 1,400 yards and at least 10 touchdowns three times in four years before missing six games in 2023.

With Edwards gone and the injured JK Dobbins an uninspiring No. 1 running back, the Ravens need to act quickly if they want to secure Henry or Jones on a deal that will give Jackson a new starter at running back.
