NFL Rumors: Eagles steal another star from Titans in ESPN’s latest mock trade

On the heels of acquiring All-Pro safety Kevin Byard from the Titans, Eagles GM Howie Roseman is still looking to improve his roster.

The perceived notion in NFL circles is that Roseman may not be done making moves, and another impactful trade could be on the horizon.

The Eagles have been linked to Pro Bowl corners Kenny Moore II and Patrick Surtain in recent weeks, but what if they added yet another weapon for Jalen Hurts?

Since the Titans seem all too eager to hand proven talent to Philadelphia (hello AJ Brown), ESPN’s Mike Tannenbaum suggested a trade where the Eagles poach away star RB Derrick Henry:

Eagles receive: Derrick Henry, 2024 7th-round pick

Titans receive: 2024 5th-round, 2025 3rd-round pick

The Titans already love sending their best players to Philly, so why not? In truth, the Eagles are OK at RB with D’Andre Swift offering serious burst alongside QB Jalen Hurts. But Henry could be a totally different animal for them, allowing Swift and Kenneth Gainwell to excel as situational play-makers.

Henry, who turns 30 in January, is in the final year of his four-year, $50M contract and is slated to become an unrestricted free agent after this season. Roseman would likely want Tennessee to eat some of his $10.5M salary, although an acquiring team would only be on the hook for $5.5M if they landed Henry after Week 8.

While Roseman is hellbent on winning a championship, Tennessee is headed towards a rebuild and Henry is likely the next domino to fall.

The 2020 Offensive Player of the Year is averaging 4.3 yards per carry this season behind the league’s worst-graded offensive line and would undoutedly thrive behind Philly’s stout unit.

A one-two punch consisting of Henry’s power and D’Andre Swift’s elusiveness may be too enticing for the Eagles to resist. NFL teams have until 4 PM EST on Tuesday to finalize any trades.
