Two-time rushing champion Derrick Henry spent his whole career with the Tennessee Titans. Now, he is bound for Baltimore to team up with Lamar Jackson and the Ravens. The pairing is a perfect match for Henry to compete for a Super Bowl ring.

However, the Ravens weren’t the only team that Henry had interest in signing with. While appearing on The Pivot, the dominant running back revealed that he wanted to go to the Dallas Cowboys.

“I thought it’d been some type of reach out, some type of talks or whatever. They never reached out, you know what I’m saying? I don’t really know too much about their organization. All I know is what I hear. I was talking to my agent. They weren’t really interested.”

The Cowboys have had a relatively quiet offseason since being blown out by the Green Bay Packers in the playoffs. The explosive punch of Henry would have absolutely helped bring some extra juice to the offense.

As Henry said, the Cowboys didn’t even reach out to see what the 30-year-old had planned on doing in free agency. Even if the team didn’t expect to sign him, it is a bit odd that they didn’t even bother to reach out.

“I was like, ‘Man, if I’m not in Tennessee or I don’t get to go to Dallas, I’d love to be a Raven.'”

Joining the Ravens could be exactly what both sides need to break through in the playoffs. The AFC (and the rest of the NFL at this points) runs through Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. Henry and his Ravens will look to put an end to the Chiefs dynasty run this year.
