Cowboys are planning to replace Zeke Elliott with another superstar running back, per insider

Football fans have been buzzing about the Dallas Cowboys' running back situation ever since they cut longtime starter Ezekiel Elliott earlier this offseason. While the team has franchise-tagged Tony Pollard, they may still be on the lookout for another running back to share the workload.

ESPN NFL expert Bill Barnwell has an interesting prediction about who the Cowboys might be interested in. According to him, if the Tennessee Titans were to release veteran Derrick Henry, the Cowboys could come calling.

Henry has been an incredible player for the Titans over the past five seasons, racking up over 1,500 yards in three separate seasons and scoring at least 10 touchdowns in each of the past five years. In fact, he had a monster season in 2020 with over 2,000 yards and 17 scores.

However, with Henry in the final year of his contract and a massive $16+ million cap hit for the 2023 season, there have been talks about Tennessee moving on from him. If they can't find a trade partner, then cutting him after April's draft could make a lot of sense.

The insider says there's a great chance of Henry becoming a Cowboy

According to Barnwell, Henry would be a great complement to the speedy and slashing style of Pollard. While the Titans would be letting him go due to his high salary, the Cowboys could swoop in and sign him to create the ultimate thunder and lightning combo.

Barnwell did mention a few other possibilities as well, including Dalvin Cook and free agents like Leonard Fournette and Latavius Murray. However, signing Derrick Henry would definitely be a splashy move for the Cowboys, which fits in with their overall theme for this offseason.

It remains to be seen whether the Cowboys will actually make a move for Henry or any of the other players mentioned. But one thing's for sure - the running back situation in Dallas is one to keep an eye on.
