    ...has the Jags picking up the RB for a 3rd round pick (conditional 2nd).

    Link


    I guess Henry's physical will be the key. There were concerns that Travis had some ligament damage there. I'm bummed that the Jags were able to pickup Henry this late. I didn't think the Jags were playoff contenders with their current RB situation.

    I really thought that Fred was going to be fine...but I think he will be back by mid-season...having Henry will definately help us in the first half. I look forward to seeing more news on this. The media in J-ville hasn't said a word about this. I know it's really all just rumors at this point, but it would be great to see Travis in a jags jersey. :jam:

    If true it definately improves the Jags running game. I'm wondering how Taylor will react to this if it occurs. Henry has stated many times he wants to go to a team where he can be a starter, and if he performs well while Taylor is out he might not give back the starting position.

    Henry will perform well wherever he goes. The key is staying healthy.

    Travis is in the last year of his rookie contract & becomes a free agent after this season. Taylor still has 3 seasons left on his contract, which is cap friendly. The Jags could sign Henry as a FA, but I expect them to keep Taylor & look for his eventual replacement in the draft.

    Henry was signed to an extension a couple years ago. I don't think he's a FA after this season and I know that he's not playing out his rookie contract.

    According to fanball.com did sign an extension in '03, but it expires after '05.

    The NFLPA website shows that 2005 is the last season of Henry's contract.

    Chris Mortensen is on Mike & Mike right now and said a deal for Henry with the Titans could be done by today.

    Or it could mean the Jags get left out in the cold with a gimpy Taylor & several stiffs at RB. And that would make me sad. :crying:

    Fred Taylor is easily a top 10 back (if not top 5) when healthy. Unfortunately he has had injury problems throughout his career that have taken out large chunks of his playing time.

    Travis Henry seems like a solid back that could step in and start. I'm just not sure the Jags should overpay for a guy that probably won't be a starting for them in 2006.

    Fred Taylor is a better back that Henry when healthy...I hope by this pick-up, it will motivate Freddy T. to get back on that field and prove that he is the premiere running back of the Jaguars.
