Len P on Henry

Postby cooleyhigh » Sun Jun 12, 2005 10:03 am

• Take it to the bank, at some point before the start of the regular season, Buffalo Bills tailback Travis Henry will be traded. To whom? Uh, we'll get back to you on that one. This much we know: There remain multiple teams interested in securing Henry, still a quality back despite losing his starting job to Willis McGahee last year, and a guy who has a couple 1,000-yard campaigns on his résumé. Sooner or later (probably later), some team is going to meet the Bills' asking price, believed to be a third-round draft choice, and pull the trigger on a deal.

That team probably won't be Houston, which continues to consider upgrading the No. 2 spot behind Domanick Davis, but doesn't appear as interested in Henry as a few other teams. That's notable because a report indicated this week that the Texans are the only club still talking with Buffalo about a Henry deal. Not true. A league source tells us Tennessee and Jacksonville are still in the mix for Henry and there have been "extensive" discussions between Titans officials and Henry's agent. That makes sense, since Henry is entering the final year of his contract, and no team is going to trade for him just to rent him for a season and then have him depart next spring in free agency. Tennessee absolutely has to land a tailback to play behind the talented but often-injured Chris Brown. The Jaguars remain concerned about Fred Taylor's knee and might want someone with a little more real-game experience than LaBrandon Toefield, who has just 104 carries in two seasons, or impressive rookie Alvin Pearman.

There were reports last week the Jaguars had discussed a trade for Seattle tailback Shaun Alexander, but Jacksonville coach Jack Del Rio was pretty convincing in debunking such talks. It would be difficult to have Taylor around in 2005, at a base salary of $1.55 million and be able to afford the kind of long-term contract Alexander desires. But we do hear that, in the Henry matter, Seattle is still a dark-horse landing spot, should the Seahawks ever find someone to take the unhappy Alexander off their hands.

Well we have already discussed all of these situations except Houston. Perhaps Hollings is proving himself a bust. I thought Morency would be a capable #2 however :-?

I doubt he will land in Houston. I think it will be Tennesse, Henry played his college ball at UT so I bet he would like that.

MN should trade M. Moore or Bennett and a draft pick for S. Alexander and then the Seahawks could acquire Henry. And yes that is just a wishful thinking scenario by a Vikes fan. Imagine power running and a good defense what would that be like?

PS I dont mean to throw this thread off topic. I still think Jax will end up sitting pat with their 3 young rbs, Toefield, Jones, and Pearman. Ten seems like themost likely place to me. I still thin Ariz should be in the mix but they really want JJ to have no competition it seems. Denny doesn't really care about RBs anyway I dont think

Travis Henry in Seattle will win a lot of early drafters championships.

Jacksonville needs to go get Henry now. They will regret it when Fragile Fred goes down for the 113th and they have LaBrandon Toefield to carry the mail.

what about there in tenn daddy-0? i hear they've been after him too? would he back up brown? are that that afraid of brown's "injury problem"? and weren't those injuries like a turf toe and a hand or somethin? not exactly knee's and ankle's.
what's your take on henry in tenn?

well it is true he played college ball in TEnn so the titans would be good, but he also lives in miami so jacksonville is a good fit
