On Monday, it was learned that the Tennessee Titans had quietly offered up the possibility of a Derrick Henry trade during the 2023 NFL Combine.
Now, the favorites to potentially land one of the most dangerous running backs in the NFL have been established.
According to PointsBet Sportsbook, the Miami Dolphins and Cincinnati Bengals are considered the favorites to land Henry. Both AFC teams have been given +400 odds, which comes out to a 20 percent implied probability.
The Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles, and Buffalo Bills, all of whom would love one more weapon in their arsenal like Henry, are each getting +500 odds.

Henry is coming off a season in which he garnered 1,538 rushing yards on 349 carries. The two-time NFL rushing champion has scored 70 touchdowns over the last five years and remains one of the most feared runners in the game.
If Henry were to head to the Dolphins, an offense that includes him, Tyreek Hill, and Jaylen Waddle might be pretty formidable. Meanwhile, if the Bengals were able to land him, the idea of Henry joining Joe Burrow, Ja’Marr Chase, and Tee Higgins sounds like it would be more than enough to put them back in the Super Bowl.
Of course, players get floated for potential trade options all the time and there’s no reason to believe this will happen for sure. But if it does, it could shift the balance of power in the AFC significantly.
