Derrick Henry signs with the Dallas Cowboys

This would be a massive move for a team coming off an incredibly disappointing finish to their season.

For the Dallas Cowboys, who moved on from Ezekiel Elliott after last offseason, this year's starting running back, Tony Pollard, will also be a free agent this offseason. If the Cowboys chose to replace Pollard with the old Henry, it would raise some eyebrows, but it could also signal the team's desire to have a proven commodity come aboard to help them win a Super Bowl.

The Cowboys are thin at the the running back position, so bringing in Henry in favor of bringing back Pollard would be a move that some would question, but Henry, even at 30 years old, could be a more effective runner in this Cowboys' offense, the same one that the more rugged Elliott once thrived in.

With a passing game that could be completely opened up with CeeDee Lamb, Brandin Cooks, Michael Gallup and Jake Ferguson, there could be some huge running lanes for Henry, who is incredibly quick for a player his size.

It remains to be seen where Henry will play in 2024, but expect to hear the Cowboys mentioned consistently until that is decided.
