You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.

Travis Henry can't hold a healthy Fred Taylor's jock. Taylor is easily the most underrated RB in the NFL...

If he goes to Jax I see Taylor getting the bulk (15-20 carries) and Henry getting spot duty to rest Taylor in an effort to keep him healthy, something like 5-10 carries. Then again, there is a good chance that Taylor gets hurt, in which case I think Henry would be a full time back.

IMO the only reason Jacksonville brings in Henry is because Taylor is going to miss significant time due to his current injury.

Toefield/Pearman/Jones/Fu are all perfectly capable of providing spot duty or 5-10 carries.

The thing is, none of us do or will know what the situation will be in Jacksonville until closer to the season. If your league is one that drafts closer to the season (which is best in my opinion anyway), then it's a matter of waiting patiently until more news comes out -- remember that nothing is official until Henry has plopped his John Hancock on a contract of some sort and until we know more about Taylor's injury status.

In other words, patience my young paduan learners. Patience. ;-D

Jacksonville Jaguars Coach Jack Del Rio might be getting a little nervous about his running game. The reason? No one seems to be saying anything about starting running back Fred Taylor's health.

In recent weeks, Taylor has said team officials lied when they said he had arthroscopic surgery on his knee in January. Instead, he said, he had major surgery to repair ligament damage.

Taylor said he hopes to be ready for the start of the season. But the rehab from the surgery would seem to mean Taylor won't be 100 percent when training camp starts in about a month.

So, does that mean the Jags have an interest in the Buffalo Bills' Travis Henry, who is expendable because of the emergence of Willis McGahee?

The Jags say no, but Tennessee GM Floyd Reese seems to believe otherwise. The Titans also are interested in Henry.

"It sounds like [Taylor] just started [testing his knee], and [the Jags] are going to wait and see where he ends up," Reese told The Tennessean of Nashville. "I think, in Buffalo's situation, they can certainly wait and see what happens there, too. They have a fall back, which would be us, and now it is a matter of getting something else."

The Bills want a third-rounder for Henry, who has averaged 962.3 yards per season in his four-year career, but the Titans aren't willing to give up a third-rounder.

"They can just sit and wait, and I don't know how long they are going to be willing to wait," Reese said of the Bills.
