    If things with Ahman Green don't work out, we still have a shot at Travis Henry
    I saw this earlier and wasn't sure if I should post because it was a blog entry, but it seems believable.

    :marionaner: 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!!!!!! :piano:

    I would love to have Henry but the Niners probably already signed him...

    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.

    C'mon guys be positive! 49ers have Frank Gore, & Henry probably wants to be a starter... :marionaner:

    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. :dance:

    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.

    He's fine as a football player but isn't he one toke away from another suspension?

    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...?)
