I think he goes to DALLAS for a later draft pick (not 1st round)


I dont think Dallas would want him with Julius Jones around.

With the amount of RBs available this offseason, I'd be suprised if Henry fetched more than a 2nd round pick.
My thoughts exactly. I don't think that Dallas needs Henry, especially the way that Jones finished the year.

I think a team would absolutely want to sign him long term if they are going to trade for him.

Here's a little different one to chew on, what about the Eagles? Westbrook is a free agent I believe plus I think Henry is an every downer while Westie is more of a Warrick Dunn type of back. He would be a dandy addition.

For those in the know: What type of running back is Travis Henry? I have never SEEN him play with my OWN EYES.

Is he a north/south type?

Slasher/cut-back type?

Run-n-Catch?

I saw somebody mention that is will not fit in the raiders scheme based on the o-line, can you elaborate as to why? I know the raiders sucked this year. But do the styles not mesh?

I'd kind of liken his style to a Norv Turner favorite, Emmitt Smith. I don't know that he would necessarily have trouble in the Raiders scheme. For the type of back that Turner prefers, I think he would make a nice fit.

Totally agree. Jones has what it takes to be the startign Dalals back for while, and putting Henry in his spot is just plain dumb.

Less shifty than McGahee more of a down hill runner

Henry is a straight ahead, gritty runner. He is not going to get you any 75 yard TDs but he will put up 125 yards on 30 carries if given the oppurtunity, if I was a team with many needs and a hole at RB, I would definetly trade for him.

Nick Saban has said that the Phins would be interested in Henry but also said that Ricky Williams would be welcome back.

Travis Henry: Dolphins Could be Interested

Postby The Lung » Sun Jan 16, 2005 8:42 pm

Travis Henry: Dolphins Could be Interested, according to Rotowire:

Travis Henry: Dolphins Could be Interested
RotoWire.com Staff - RotoWire.com
Sunday, January 16, 2005

Update: A source said the Dolphins are one of the teams exploring the acquisition of Henry, who was given permission by the Bills to seek a trade, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

Recommendation: It'd be odd for the Bills to trade a still viable commodity to a division rivalry, but GM Tom Donahoe has enough of a gunslinger approach to at least consider it if the offer was a good one. Don't count on this just yet though, as a trade can't be completed until March 2. The Dolphins will likely look at other options before then, as well as a talented group of rookie backs hitting the 2005 Draft.
