    TITANS TO TANK HENRY

    The Nashville Tennessean reports that the Titans will cut running back Travis Henry on Saturday, in order to avoid a roster bonus of $8.3 million that comes due on Monday.

    The move will leave the team without Henry or Chris Brown under contract. Lendale White, a rookie in 2006, is the other tailback on the team.

    Thus, the Titans likely will be in the market for help at the position.

    Another option if they actual do cut him loose, has ran well for the Bills and the Titans, neither have the best line in the world.

    I definately think GB should go after Henry if Ahman wants too much.

    I agree all the way. He's very similar to Green in many ways. He's coming off a 1200 yard year. He's been productive with two different teams. He makes a lot of sense if you can't get Green.

    ESPN Insider has confirmed that his Agent has been contacted by the Packers.

    He was suspended last year for violating the leagues drug policy.

    He is one more violation away from a year suspension. Might be to much of a risk to pin all our RB hopes on him.

    That substance violation was in 2005, and played very hard last year. But I agree it could be a risk, but we pinned our hopes to Robinson last year:)

    I'd hardly say we pinned our hopes to him...

    But on the subject of Henry, I think he's just an absolute stud. My guess is TT will wait on this year's FAs, at least a week, but if TH makes it that far, I'd be just elated if the Pack brought him in.

    steve, I think the expectation around the league is that he will resign with Baltimore.

    Hasn't been so productive as of late, and there are the legal issues he has.

    I'm excited about this guy, but I don't think it's likely that we sign him.

    Here's the lowdown on Henry. He'll be 29 in Oct, but has shared carries quite a bit in his career. Let's get excited, people!

    I'm not excited at all. Dude can't stay healthy to save his life. Which is a shame because I'd be chasing him with a loaded gun if he came here.

    Green+Lynch would be a delicious combo.

    The Packers, Houston and Oakland also talked Henry's agent, Hadley Engelhard, on Saturday, but the Packers are waiting to see what happens with Green before making any moves and didn't set up a visit with Henry.

    Why don't we try to convince Tiki Barber to come out of retirement?

    Easy there ref, last time I saw Ricky I swear he looked as if a hard tackle would snap him in two.

    He has lost a lot of his muscle mass and desire.

    Well check off Henry in a Packers uni....

    Running back Travis Henry agreed to a five-year contract that include $12 million worth of guaranteed money with the Denver Broncos. Henry was scheduled to visit Oakland, Green Bay and the New York Giants and those visits were cancelled after he reached the deal with the Broncos.

    Ted plan "C" time:)

    Yeah, 12 mil guaranteed? Insane. I hate the idea of overspending for players with ?? i'm OK with passing on him. Maybe we can trade for Willis? :shrug:

    Ted's still on plan 'A'. We have the money. If TT thought he was worth it we could have signed him. Henry's no better than Green, and only one year younger.

    Ted's got it covered folks, trust me. Better yet, trust him.

    Well I hope plan a isn't Vernand Morency and a rookie:) Oh and don't forget about a bargin stop gap, say maybe Stephen Davis.

    In all seriousness, there is alot of time left, but we can't alway bargin shop, we need some more talent on this team. I trust and hope he has a plan, but don't try to tell me that he thought Green won't be in Green & Gold this year. He has to be on his secondary thought now with regards to a running back.
