Not exactly huge news, but an interesting comment inside..

Running back Travis Henry agreed to a contract extension on Wednesday, the Buffalo News reported. Financial terms of the deal were not available. Henry had two years left on a four-year contract, but his new deal runs through 2005. "It works out for him because he's secure for five years instead of four," Henry's agent Greg Johnson explained. "He's a running back, so anytime you can get something early it's good to do it. I think had he not done the extension, the Bills would have been talking contract this season anyway...It's a good deal, but it's not the deal he's going to get if he stays healthy and continues to perform at the high level he reached last season."

The Bills have put together a good, young offensive line, picked up a veteran blocking fullback, and now given Henry an extension. It's very clear that Buffalo loves Travis and is doing their best to keep him happy. Do not worry that the pampering will make Henry sluggish, though. Travis and his agent are gearing up to go for big bucks in a couple of years.



Its interesting that the agent and player are hoping to stay the course like last year and then demand the big bucks. Travis has a plan !

Interest in this RB is growing daily, I wouldnt be surprised to see him going very early in a lot of drafts come draft time.
I mean top 4 early.

I don't know where this agent learned his math, but to me, 'through 2005..' works out to being secure for THREE years (2003, 2004, 2005)!!!!!!! Oh well, guess that is why I'm not an agent!


I think it's good for Henry to go this, because his career could be over by then, and he thinks he will show them how good he is, and then sign for the big pay day!

Hehe, you wont see a peep out of me about post counts until the 2k mark ;-D
Far as Travis goes, top 10 now, top 4 or 5 come draft day, only a guess based upon how interest in him is rising around the fantasy world. Maybe I should hit the prediction board :-)
