Trade Number 2: Tampa Bay shocks fan base and snags Derrick Henry

Through four weeks, the Bucs have struggled to run the football consistently. Currently, they are the league's sixth-worst in that category, averaging just 87.0 yards per game on the ground. Rachaad White has been nothing special, averaging only 3.3 yards per carry on 63 carries.

White has caught the ball well, though, totaling 13 receptions in four games and proving that he might just be better off as a third-down type of back. If the Bucs wanted to right the ship (no pun intended) in terms of their ground game, why not go after Derrick Henry who appears to be running out of time as the Titans' lead back?

Henry trade

Sure, last week we saw Henry have a monster game. But, that had to come after a week that saw him get very limited action and, in fact, receive a lower snap count than rookie Tyjae Spears. Speaking of Spears, it appears to be his job in the near future.

The Titans shopped Henry earlier this past offseason, so we know they are looking to move on. Henry is in the final year of his contract, and the Bucs are atop the NFC South while looking for a way to stay there.
