With the start of the new NFL league year approaching, it never comes as a surprise that some of the league’s biggest names are often being discussed as trade pieces. Some teams are either rebuilding or looking to rebuild, while others are looking to make a splash. So, it came as no surprise when NFL insider Michael Silver of Bally Sports recently reported that DeAndre Hopkins and Jalen Ramsey were being shopped at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis this past week.
What was shocking though, is when Silver revealed that an unsuspecting name was also the subject of trade chatter. An offseason after trading away A.J. Brown, the Tennessee Titans are reportedly shopping All-Pro running back Derrick Henry on the trading block.
Here’s what Silver had to say in his piece on the Bally Sports website:
To be sure, trade talk was rampant at the combine. According to my sources — all of them current general managers — Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry, Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey and Arizona Cardinals receiver DeAndre Hopkins are among the players who’ve been shopped in recent days.
Under the team’s new general manager Ran Carthon, the Titans have already parted ways with several veteran players, including the likes of Taylor Lewan, Robert Woods, Zach Cunningham and Randy Bullock. According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the Titans are also expected to release pass-rusher Bud Dupree, who is due upwards of $17 million in 2023.
We’ll have to see if Tennessee ultimately ends up pulling the trigger on a potential Henry trade, but the news should be concerning to Titans fans, to say the least.
