The Jacksonville Jaguars would have to give up some good picks in this trade.
The Jacksonville Jaguars would become a totally different team if they added a back like Derrick Henry. Teaming him up with Travis Etienne could be a lethal combination out of the backfield with Trevor Lawrence under center. It would also help both players stay a bit fresher over a long season.
Giving up a future second-round pick and a future third-round pick might seem like a lot for an aging running back but there are a few reasons why it might be worth it.
For one, it would be a trade between two division rivals. Those sorts of trades usually cost more for the team acquiring the good player in the deal. In this case, that would be the Jaguars.
You also never know how long your Super Bowl window is open. Some people act like it is going to be open for 20 years when that is just unlikely. Getting someone like Henry for 2023 would show the world that the Jaguars are in it to win it
A move like this would also not be the Jaguars giving up on the future just for the present either. It could really help them beyond the year if they were able to retain Henry.
