Default Texans looking at Travis Henry

If things with Ahman Green don't work out, we still have a shot at Travis Henry
Quote:
The Packers, Texans and Raiders also talked to Henry’s agent, Hadley Engelhard, Today, but the Packers are waiting to see what happens with Green before making any moves. They didn’t set up a visit with Henry.
I saw this earlier and wasn't sure if I should post because it was a blog entry, but it seems believable.
Quote:
***** According to various sources, the Texans have shifted their attention to free agent ex-Bills/Titans RB Travis Henry. Henry's agent Hadley Engelhard said that:

"Green Bay and Oakland have expressed interest in my client, but Houston appears to be in the lead for his services".

Henry is meeting with Denver officials this weekend.

I'd much rather have Henry than Green at any point. I posted that he was cut, but I didn't know we were in the running. La Oss Reise, Texans!!!!!!

I know huh?! But he will be an incredible upgrade either way you look at it, it all depends on how much $$$ he is wanting really.

Well if you consider the 5 mil a year Green wants, I'd much rather give Henry a shot at that kind of money considering he could be more of a long-term solution.

Henry is one of the players I want the most in FA. I hope we can do what it takes to get him just to stick it to a division rival and get a top 10 running back in the fold imo

henry would probably fit a little better in than green but both have medical issues...i think henry has more tread on the tires...but in the end i don't see either one being a major player for us for years to come

Henry had some character/off-field issues with Buffalo. Anyone know if those are behind him? I think I prefer him to Green all things considered, especially considering dollar for dollar. All in all, I would be pretty excited.

Green's asking for five million a season...I'd actually give it to Henry. Wonder if Henry's release has anything to do with restructuring Andre??? Pay the man.

I remember him rushing for over 100 yards for the Bills on a broken leg. He was understandably upset that after back to back great seasons, they drafted Willis McGahee.

Travis Henry is a much better back at this point of his career than Ahman Green. I'd much rather have Henry over Green.

Me too. I've had a man-crush on him since he led me to my first fantasy football championship. It was real hard seeing him in Tennessee. I will pray tonite for Travis's redemption. Feel free to do the same.

Even though he was a good back in Buffalo I was really impressed the way he ran last year for the Titans. Even though VY got most of the glory, deservedly so, Henry's running was one of the main reasons the Titans almost made the playoffs.

Green had all of one more fumble last season than Henry (while playing one less game). And over the course of his career, Henry has been as or more fumble-prone than Green. He's had seasons of 11 fumbles and 7 fumbles... and that's two of his four years as a starter. The difference? Henry's fumbles were largely ignored on non-contending Buffalo teams, while Green's fumbles made news because the Packers are one of the league's most popular teams.

Henry's last three years were 3.5 and 3.8 YPC, and he was off to a 2.7 YPC start this year... until Vince Young (the ultimate decoy) came into the game, and suddenly his YPC shot up. That seems more like a product of the system (i.e. Young) than it does him magically improving on the spot.

Also, Green has had one injury, but has otherwise been extremely durable. Henry has a history of several nagging injuries that haven't gone away. In addition, Green is an excellent receiver out of the backfield, with 46 catches for more than 8 YPC last season... much better than Henry's 18 for 78.

Henry looks better in the small sample size of last season and is the sexier choice, but when you look at the surrounding factors, it's very risky. I'd rather take my chances with Green.

No matter where he goes, www.travishenry.com is in need of a serious makeover at this point!

TH is one of the few FAs I'd actually like the Texans to take a shot at. A bona fide 1200-yard rusher in '06 who, all season long, only fumbled as much as David Carr did in the first half of the Raiders game.

Could be costly, but worth taking a look at, and certainly more appealing than A. Green (unless you are Mike Sherman...?)
