The most juicy trade target, in all of football for the Ravens, is Titans running back Derrick Henry. Earlier during the 2023 offseason, the Titans were shopping Henry. The plan to replace Henry has been in place for a while now, and it became even more apparent after the team drafted Tyjae Spears back in April.

Watching Spears, it's clear he is the more electric and explosive back, and the Titans are happy with moving on from Henry in favor of the rookie. However, from the Henry point of view, he can still help a contending team win a Super Bowl. Henry is still a punishing runner who is durable and gets better as the game wears on.

For a team like the Ravens who have been decimated at the running back position, Henry gives them a legitimate workhorse back. Since J.K. Dobbins went down to a season-ending injury, the Ravens have used a committee approach. But, the threat of Henry behind Lamar Jackson is far too good to pass up.

Henry is in the last year of his contract and is 30 years old, so the Titans couldn't ask for more than a fourth-round pick, one would assume.
