Derrick Henry is getting set to hit free agency and will be one of the most sought-after running backs on the open market next month.

Apparently, players from other teams are already eager to bring him aboard, as Henry said at the Pro Bowl that he is already being recruited.

“There’s been a lot of conversations,” Henry told Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network. “Just having a good time with the guys, there’s been a lot of chatter but it’s been a lot of fun. I’m just enjoying the whole weekend.”

So, just who has been trying to enlist Henry, and would Henry actually be interesting in playing for the respective teams of those players?

The 30-year-old has already said he wants to win a Super Bowl, so, chances are, he has a relatively short list of ballclubs that he would consider joining.

Fortunately for Henry, there are numerous contending squads that are in need of a featured halfback, so he should be able to find exactly what he is looking for.

Henry, who played his collegiate football at the University of Alabama, was selected by the Tennessee Titans in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

He has spent his entire career with the Titans, making four trips to the Pro Bowl and earning a First-Team All-Pro selection.

The Yulee, Fl. native led the league in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns in back-to-back campaigns in 2019 and 2020, topping out at 2,027 yards and 17 scores in the latter season.

This past season, Henry registered 1,167 yards and 12 touchdowns while averaging 4.2 yards per carry.

Is Derrick Henry the same elite rusher from several years ago? No, but he could certainly help put a team over the hump. We’ll see what he decides to do in March.
