Derrick Henry available?
It looks like one of the best running backs in the NFL is available on the trade market.
Several general managers in the league have reportedly told the Bally Sports network that the Tennessee Titans would try to trade Derrick Henry.
The 29-year-old athlete has been dominant since making the jump to the NFL in 2016. He was notably the running back offensive player with the most rushing yards twice in the last four seasons and winning the league's Most Outstanding Offensive Player award in 2020.
Henry has been the main weapon in attacking Titans for several campaigns. He has run the ball 1,249 times since 2019, which is 174 more runs than any other running back who has worked in the NFL during the same period.
In 2023, the product of the University of Alabama will play the last year of a four-year contract and must get his hands on a salary of $ 10.5 million. By trading him, the Titans could save $6.3 million on their payroll.
The Tennessee squad had a disappointing 2022 season and went 7-10. She had to settle for second place in the American South Division and missed the playoffs for the first time in four years.
The Titans would toy with the idea of falling into reconstruction. They also intend to release quarterback hunter Bud Dupree, according to the NFL Network.
“Learned about it on Twitter,” Dupree said in a tweet that he has since deleted.
The veteran signed a five-year, $82.5 million contract with the Titans in 2021. However, he has been limited to 21 games since joining the team due to injury.
Good news for the “Jags”
The Jaguars of Jacksonville will be able to count on the services of wide receiver Calvin Ridley this season. On Monday, the NFL decided to reinstate him.
The footballer had been suspended indefinitely since March 2022, following an investigation which proved that he had bet on matches of the circuit in 2021, while wearing the colors of the Atlanta Falcons.
The “Jags” acquired the club from Georgia last November.
Ridley caught 31 passes for 281 yards and two touchdowns in five games in 2021. The previous year, he had rushed for 1,374 yards, reaching the end zone nine times in 15 games.
The Dallas Cowboys have announced that they will use of their franchise player tag on running back Tony Pollard. If the player and the team do not agree on a long-term contract, the athlete could touch a little more than $ 10 million in 2023.
The Minnesota Vikings will release linebacker Eric Kendricks , who was one of the team's starters since they drafted him in 2015. The organization will thus save $9.5 million on its payroll.
