Originally posted by Mayhem Barring any hang-ups, it looks like Travis Henry (sports.espn.go.com) will be heading back the state in which he played his college ball.
As a Titans fan not having a lot of faith in Chris Brown carrying the load at RB, I love this pick-up, especially since I followed him at UT.
Definitely a nice trade for the Titans. I'm surprised Buffalo only wanted a 3rd round pick for him. Maybe they shouldn't have made it so obvious that he was on the block?
Is there a more overrated GM in pro football than Tom Donohoe?
The Bills didn't have much choice in this one.
1> Henry's value dropped like a stone when he was replaced as a starter last year by McGahee
2> Henry has had injury problems the last couple of years, making his value much less than it once was
3> Henry had made it clear that he wasn't showing up to training camp this year, providing the Bills with nothing-more than a distraction
The only time Henry had more value was last off-season or very early last year when it was obvious that McGahee was OK. He only would've been worth more if some team was completely stuck with no RB due to injury and the Bills really had to make this move before camp starts.
In listening to WGR(Buffalo's sports station) yesterday, they are not overly thrilled although they knew he had to go. Since 1981, only 1 Buffalo third-rounder has ever had anything resembling a career in the NFL (Jonas Jennings).
I wish Henry luck in Tennessee. He deserves better than what happened in Buffalo....
EDIT: Oh ya, in response to your question about Donahoe, probably, but he has built a decent team so far. The only big question mark for this season is QB, and they had to try Losman at some point...

In all seriousness, it's incredible that Bears Management didn't see this coming. You really needed to have someone experienced in camp, just in case. On a side note, are the broadcasts sponsored by Chase this year, since BankOne is no longer?
