Reports have surfaced that the Dallas Cowboys could have serious interest in Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry, especially combined with having released fan favorite and former 1st round draft selection Ezekiel Elliott earlier this year. 

A key reinforcement at the running back position would certainly make sense for the Cowboys, considering the fact that Tony Pollard is continuing his offseason recovery from a devastating leg injury.

According to Bill Barnwell of ESPN, the health of Pollard along with his uncertain availability for when his team gathers for training camp later this summer could very well entice them to target a veteran like Henry. 

“The Cowboys could look toward a market that still includes Leonard Fournette, Latavius Murray and Kareem Hunt unsigned. There’s also a chance expensive veterans such as Derrick Henry and Dalvin Cook could be released after the draft,” writes Barnwell. “Dallas could add a rookie in April’s draft, but Pollard’s uncertain status for Week 1 leads me to believe the team would probably prefer to have a more experienced back on the roster,” he continued.

Additionally, according to USA Today Sports, the Cowboys could plan on checking on his availability from the Titans later this month.

Over the course of his career, Henry has racked up 8,335 yards and 78 touchdowns. Just how great would he look trading the colors of the Titans to come aboard to America's Team and the most iconic look in the National Football League?
