Looks like Travis Henry wants out. Can't say that I really blame him for it. He's still got some good years left. Much to his credit, he didn't do this down the stretch and waited until their season was over.
Originally posted by MayhemI would say Miami, but does Buffalo trade him to a divisional rival?
Lucky for Travis, the weather is much nicer in Phoenix then in Buffalo. And if not there, in San Francisco or in Tampa.
I'd say if they can swing a Cardinals deal, that allows the Bills to send him to a place where he's least likely to exact any revenge. I'd take him for the Dolphins in a heartbeat, but I don't think Buffalo is dumb enough to trade him to a team they play twice a year, either.

I don't know how quick I would be to bring Henry to Miami. If no other top level backs are available via free agency or the draft (and I for one have my eye on Cedric Benson), perhaps. Henry is a very good player when he's healthy but he seems to get injured quite a bit, making his reliability a big question. Yes, he plays through injuries, but it seems that he is always playing through injuries, meaning he's not a 100% back that you can count on and build your team around. If I thought he would be healthy, I'd bring him in in a heartbeat.
No way he lands in Tampa, though...Chucky loves Pittman.
I think Henry could easily end up in Indy if James goes to Miami. They probably wouldn't have to ask Manning and Harrison to restructure their contracts to sign or trade for Henry, where as they would certianly have to do that to resign James.
They're not making an exception for T.O. They did the same for the Raiders a few years back for a player who's name utterly escapes me at present, and they may well do the same for the Northcutt situation.
