RB Derrick Henry (Tennessee Titans)

There is not much more to add to this saga. The Ravens' interest is so clear that Baltimore had, in fact, completed a trade for Henry earlier this month until the Titans owner vetoed it, according to Cole Jackson.

Henry is still to turn 30 years old but he's accrued 8,861 total yards throughout his pro career averaging 4.7 yards per carry while scoring 81 touchdowns to date.

There is no arguing he's a legitimate stud at rushing the rock, and he would instantly become the no. 1 running back of the Flock for the second half of the season.

Putting Lamar Jackson, Derrick Henry, and the boosted pass-catching crops together on the field would simply turn Baltimore into the no. 1 Super Bowl contender for the 2023 season, no questions asked.

Whether the Titans are willing to trade Henry or not is another entirely different discussion, however. The Titans won in Week 8 under the guidance of rookie QB Will Levis and they might opt to give the season a try even if they are facing long odds to make it past the first round of the playoffs... assuming they get there.
