-- Titans Still Eyeing Henry --
Thu Jun 23, 2005 --from FFMastermind.com

The Nashville Tennessean reports Titans GM Floyd Reese is laying low these days. He knows the Buffalo Bills want to dump disgruntled RB Travis Henry because RB Willis McGahee is assured of starting ahead of the former Tennessee star. The Bills have cast the bait, GM Tom Donahoe demanding a third-round draft pick for Henry. It must be said that Reese values draft picks right up there with his wife and running shoes. Prying a third-round draft pick out of Reese could prove excruciatingly difficult. There are others showing interest in Henry, a durable back who posted a 1,438-yard season in 2002, followed by a 1,356-yard year with the Bills before McGahee shuffled into Buffalo. He missed only one game in those two seasons, once playing on a broken leg. Two of the interested parties reside in the Titans division Jacksonville and Houston. The Jaguars admitted they have interest in Henry. Veteran RB Fred Taylor has suffered his share of injuries and is on the downside of a brilliant-when-healthy career. Why are the Titans interested in Henry? Primarily because of the past injury record of third-year back Chris Brown. Brown has missed significant time over his first two seasons and suffered a broken hand in non-contact drills during the team's first offseason session. Brown becomes a restricted free agent after this season, while Henry will be an unrestricted free agent. Reese insists the only way he would deal for Henry is if they can agree on a long-term contract. With NFL teams breaking camp and front office types and coaches taking vacations, don't look for much movement until training camps open.

That guy is probably just reciting the prior incorrect rumour.

If were showing any interest it has to be to get the Titans to bite and burn a 3rd Rd. pick.

The only way that Henry becomes a Texan is if Davis gets hurt in the first day of Training Camp.

Other than that, we have about 20 positions that need upgrading way before RB.

no maybe 21 other positions. ?

That is the only way this bs makes sense... look at the Texans talking about getting Wells some snaps at fullback. How many RB's do we need...

You can ALWAYS cut people or carry 4 RB. Even though I disagree lets say that we think Davis is a good to decent back. I will tell you right now Holling and some 3rd round 25 yearold Rookie are NOT better than Herny and since Wells is a FB I guess he doesnt count. I think if we brough Herny in he would beat DD out but hey maybe they spilt the Carries keep DD fresh and Herny is are goaline back. Since were zone blocking we might as well use the old Denver stragey "You can never have too many good RB"

As far as us getting a TE or OL not counting Verbra do you see any decent Linemen or TE? He is the best and I think everyone feel he about as good as the guys we have.

Also think about this say we give the Bills the Saints 3rd round pick. Would you rather have the T the Saints drafted and that 3rd rounder or TJ and that 3rd rounder or TJ and Herny? I say #3. I will probably get bashed on this post but I sure as heck dont want to see him run for 1,600 for the Jags (if he goes to the Titans that would still be ok they just suck.)

We might be able to keep that 3rd if gave the Bills Morncey (sp?) and like a 4th or 5th rounder?

You may not think so, but I'm saying this to be nice (you seem like a bright youngster).... You are exposing your total ignorance of the NFL and you are showing your lack of understanding talent when it comes to bashing Davis over and over. Also, the statement about Morency is pure and simple bold ignorance. Morency's age has nothing to do with anything when it comes to running the football the next 5 years. He is in the prime of his Manhood.

Wells is a RB fwiw. Just because he has a fluff piece on him on the Texans site about how he may get some touches in the backfield as a FB doesn't make him one yet. I know you are 15 and know everything but if you slow down a bit and try to learn from the others.

Um thats just werid that they turned him into a FB whatever. I was really trying hard not to bash DD but I still think having Herny more effective! I dont know anything about Morency so I will keep my mouth shut but if he is better than Herny we just made the sleeper pick of the year!

Back to this topic after 2adays.

Wells is no more a FB than David Carr is right now. Camp hasn't started yet and that is where his role will be defined. You are making massive assumptions off a off-season fluff piece.

They are pretty much the same back, except Henry cries a lot more and is older.

Before I move on I will say that I am not in the "Davis is great" camp either, so we share that a bit, but I don't put myself in a position to look like a total fool by ignoring his production or minimizing his achievments in his first two years. As a Texans fan you ought to be proud we found a viable back in the second day of the draft instead of creating a user name bashing him just because you would like to see more of a Franchise back. Carry on Pards.

Cuz, we don't have a running back problem and the stats from 04 prove it.

I can explain it again for you if you like... but unfortunately I can't "understand it for you".

Just a comparison not taking either side:

Henry's combined 2002 and 2003 stats his 2 best years, since he lost his job last year.

31 games
Rushing-2,794yds
Recieving-467yds
Total-3261yds
Rushing TD's-23
Recieving TD's-2
Fumbles-18

Davis' 2003 and 2004 season totals his only two years.

29 games
Rushing-2219
Recieving-939yds
Total-3158yds
Rushing TD's-21
Recieving TD's-1
Fumbles-8

You make the call.

That many fumbles by Henry alone would amount to a CAPER's Quote with "over my dead body" somewhere in there, right?
