DAVIE Bills running back Travis Henry, who has been granted permission to seek a trade, said Monday that he wants to play for the Dolphins.

"I would love to be down there," Henry said from Orlando. "I was talking to my agent about getting me down there. That's what Miami needed this year
Henry, 26, rushed for 326 yards last season after gaining 1,438 and 1,356 in the previous two seasons. At the midpoint of last year, the Bills turned over the starting position to former University of Miami running back Willis McGahee.

"I have put up the numbers to prove I'm just as good as him," Henry said. "(The Bills) had a chance to have the best of both worlds. But they went in another direction. Why? I don't know. I'm one of the top five running backs in the NFL and I would have continued to put up the same numbers."

What a joke. Top 5? Try top 32.

He still would be a good pickup for any team who needs a RB... I don't see teams featuring Emmitt Smith, Tyrone Wheatley, or Travis Minor putting up huge rushing stats. Henry would be at least 100x better than the other brand.

He isnt even the best back in the division.
(no order)
Dillion, McGahee, Martin

He still is a really good back...

The Dolphins are going to want Edge from free agency or they get their pick of the litter in the draft. I dont see him going there.

I'd add Curtis Martin's backup in NY to that list to. Lamont Jordan has played well in the limited snaps hes gotten.
