Eagles Rumored To Be Closing In On A Deal For Derrick Henry

Written by Tony Ghaul

The Philadelphia Eagles are being rumored to be involved in a trade for Tennessee Titans superstar RB Derrick Henry.

There had been speculation about the Eagles drafting Texas running back Bijan Robinson at No. 10, but now the Derrick Henry trade rumor is rolling.

According to Akbar Gbajabiamila, host of Ninja Warrior and former NFL defensive end, the Eagles and Titans are working their way to completing a deal with Derrick Henry.

Akbar is a former NFL reporter and he is also represented by the same agency as Derrick Henry, Creative Artists Agency. Which could explain how he has this bit of information.

Henry is due to make $10.5 million this season and will be a free agent afterward. Trading for Henry could cost less than you think, especially if the Eagles restructure his contract.

The last two seasons, Henry has only played in 24 games but has racked up 2,475 yards combined.

Last season, the Eagles shocked the NFL when they and the Titans agreed on a trade A.J. Brown in exchange for a first round pick and a third round pick.

Eagles GM Howie Roseman always keeps everything interesting. Stay tuned.
