View Full Version : Travis Henry trade for LJ Shelton?

Arizona Cardinals tackle L.J. Shelton visited the Buffalo Bills Thursday to help to possibly facilitate a trade between the two teams.

The Bills are looking for left tackle options because they aren't expected to re-sign their starting left tackle, Jonas Jennings, who is an unrestricted free agent.

Shelton's visit to Buffalo creates some interesting possibilities. Because the Cardinals are in need of a starting running back, the Bills could swap halfback Travis Henry to Arizona in a player-for-player trade.

Interesting possibility that could help both teams and could certainly affect the teams' draft choices.

Anybody have a review of Jonas Jennings? 3rd round draft choice. 2001 12 games started 0 sacks allowed 5 false starts 0 holds, 2002 15 games 7.5 sacks 3 false starts 4 holds, 2003 11 games 2 sacks 6 false starts 4 holds, 2004 14 games 4 sacks 3 false starts 0 holds. Seems to miss some time every year.

That trade would make sense for both teams.

Looks to me that the Bills either think Shelton is a better LT than Jennings, that Jennings will cost too much to re-sign (& Shelton will make $3 million a year for the next 4 years), or both.

so these teams are trading players who lost their starting jobs?
