There have been rumors for the past few weeks that the Dallas Cowboys may be ready to make a move for Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry.

Now many NFL experts didn’t take the story seriously, but one NFL analyst has heard rumors that yes the Cowboys are indeed interested in making a play for the all-pro running back.

“The way Derrick plays and the size, it’s eventually going to catch up to him. If someone wants to take him on, I’ve heard the Cowboys [are] potentially interested, but it would have to be at their price, not Derrick Henry’s price,” said former ESPN host Trey Wingo, now with Pro Football Talk.

“Derrick Henry still has all kinds of things he can do for you, but the clock is ticking.”

Wingo may be right. Henry although still very productive, is 29 years old as of his birthday in January and it doesn’t look like the Titans are going to make any major changes on offense to help Henry in the backfield.

Many feel as if his talent is being wasted in Tennessee and the Cowboys would be the ideal fit for him, while others think it would be insane for the franchise to take the aging running back.

So, it comes down to what would make sense for the Cowboys and the Titans for that matter.
