Star running back Derrick Henry has frequently popped up in trade rumors over the past couple of months. For now, the two-time rushing champion is still a member of the Tennessee Titans.
Many wondered if the Titans would rebuild by moving on from Henry and Ryan Tannehill following the franchise’s first losing season since 2015. There’s no indicator that the Titans are planning to move out either player this offseason, but it doesn’t mean the trade rumors will die down any time soon.
Sam Monson of Pro Football Focus picked the best landing spots for the top remaining trade candidates available. Monson listed the Chicago Bears as the best destination for Henry, writing “Henry’s hard-running style would fit well with Justin Fields in Chicago’s backfield.”
Fields crossed 1,000 yards rushing last year. The Bears also added D’Onta Foreman (914 rushing yards for Carolina last year) to a backfield led by Khalil Herbert. They don’t necessarily need Henry, but his presence would surely make the rushing game more prolific.

Henry is entering the final season of his contract, and he’ll be 30 years of age next January. That’s a common age for running backs to slow down in today’s NFL, so it will be interesting to see what the Titans do with their franchise star.
If the Titans decide to keep Henry, they could always look at shopping ahead of the 2023 NFL trade deadline. And of course, there won’t be a shortage of teams interested in the 2020 Offensive Player of the Year.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
