Derrick Henry was a difference-maker in high school, college, and his first seven seasons in the National Football League for the Tennessee Titans.

He is one of the many prominent faces in the pros, but is he headed to a new team?

Trade rumors are heating up as the Titans are looking for a trade partner for Henry. Buck Reising of AtoZ Sports named the Baltimore Ravens as the most likely trade partner for Henry. The trade deadline is Oct. 31 at 3 p.m. CT to move players.

Henry, 29, is one of the most dominant running backs in the NFL. A former second round pick of the 2016 NFL Draft, Henry is a three-time Pro Bowler, a first-team All-Pro selection (2020), NFL Offensive Player of the Year (2020), and a two-time NFL russhing yards leader (2019, 2020) and two-time NFL rushing touchdowns leader (2019, 2020). Injuries have plagued the Baltimore Ravens at running back, so adding Henry would be good for the franchise. Lamar Jackson, a former NFL Most Valuable Player, could use an elite rushing attack. Henry can still turn in marquee numbers, despite nearing 30 years old.

He came to the University of Alabama in 2013 as a five-star from Yulee, Fla. 

Henry helped the Crimson Tide to two Southeastern Conference Championships (2014-15) and a College Football Playoff National Championship in 2015. He totaled 2,219 rushing yards and 28 touchdowns as a junior, becoming the second Heisman Trophy winner in Alabama history. We will see where he ends up, but the talks of him being traded are heating up.

Henry has 425 yards rushing, 117 yards receiving, and four total touchdowns this season.
