Henry's fills void in Broncos' backfieldBy Len Pasquarelli

Filling their need for a proven tailback, the Denver Broncos on Monday reached a contract agreement with Travis Henry, who was released on Saturday by the Tenenessee Titans to avoid paying him an $8.3 million roster bonus.

Henry will sign a five-year contract that includes $12 million in guarantees, ESPN.com has learned.

Within hours of his release, Henry flew to Denver and visited with Broncos officials over the weekend, while agent Hadley Engelhard negotiated a deal. Henry also drew considerable interest from the Oakland Raiders, who hoped to bring him in for a visit this week.

Henry, 28, carried 270 times for 1,211 yards and seven touchdowns in 2006, and notched six 100-yard outings. The former University of Tennessee standout spent the first four years of his career with the Buffalo Bills before being traded to the Titans in 2005.

In 78 games, including 62 starts, Henry has carried 1,321 times for 5,395 yards and 34 touchdowns. He also has 134 receptions for 886 yards and two scores. In addition to his 1,000-yard season in 2006, Henry ran for over 1,000 yards in two of his four seasons with the Bills.


Certainly raises his fantasy stock in my book.... ;-D

Henry is my new #2 behind LT!!!!




OK, maybe not quite that high, but I think he's got to be in the top 15 for sure, if not potential for the top ten now.




Some owners in Keeper Leagues just got a LOT happier.

So where does this land Henry in upcoming drafts? 3rd round in 12-team leagues?

I think it's safe to say that Henry's fantasy stock just skyrocketed.

My only caveat with Travis would be that another violation of the SA policy would result in a one year vacation.

I can't imagine he'd go in the first round. There are just too many established guys ahead of Henry. He's a good runner, but doesn't catch many passes and Denver still has Mike Bell, who will get some carries. I can see mid-late second though.

That's HUGE for henry's fantasy value for sure. I'd say late 1st early second rounder for sure now.
