A guy like Henry could be had for likely a 2nd rounder, and several others could be had without giving anything up. Where does that leave the value of the Minn. Rb's?
Ya know, I think a lot of teams are going to be willing to give up picks for RBs who can come in and help their team after seeing what Dillon did for the Pats for a measly second round pick.
Granted, Dillon was a little more proven than Henry is but I think people now see the value in giving up the pick for a guy who can come in and make a difference.
Dillon didn't only garner a 2nd round pick because anyone doubted what he could do on the field, he was only worth a 2nd round pick because everyone knew they could get him for that little because Cincy wanted him out.
Same with TO...2nd rounder.
Same goes for Henry. Granted, he doesn't bring the off the field baggage, but really the major role that played was in determining that the team didn't want them anymore. In Henry's case, Mcgahee is that reason rather than off the field problems.
All the chips are on the side of the team trading FOR Henry. In Buffalo, Henry would be nothing more than the highest paid backup RB in the league. Everyone knows the Bills don't want to pay their backup RB more than most of their starters, so they have the bargaining chip.
If the Bills didn't have Mcgahee, and someone approached the Bills about trading for Henry, there's no way they could get him for a 2nd round pick. With Mcgahee there, a 2nd rounder is better than nothing...
