1. Target Derrick Henry

The Ravens will take a very hard look at the running back market this offseason, as the idea of improving upon Gus Edwards, coupled with one of the best free agent classes at the position in years, could help Baltimore sign a Pro Bowl player like Henry for their title push.

While names like Josh Jacobs and Saquon Barkley could be in the mix after their respective teams confirmed they would not hit them with the franchise tag, Henry's need for a championship ring after spinning his tires in Tennessee could help him eventually get a deal done.

The Baltimore Ravens could sign Derrick Henry in free agency.

Henry was still one of the most productive running backs in the league last year playing in a very vanilla offensive scheme alongside a rookie quarterback in Will Levis and one of the worst offensive lines in the game. Every aspect of the Ravens' offense has more NFL success, which could help him sustain his high level of production.

Paying a running back on the wrong side of 30 years old might sound like a horrendous decision, and it normally is. However, Henry's ability to defy Father Time thanks to a durable bulldozer of a body might help convince the Ravens he has a ton of gas left. He and Jackson would drive the Ravens' offense.
