    Broncos sign Henry to five-year deal
    By Terry McCormick, tmccormick@nashvillecitypaper.com
    March 05, 2007

    Two days after losing their leading receiver to free agency, the Tennessee Titans lost their leading running back from 2006.
    Travis Henry, released on Saturday after he and the Titans could not agree on an extension to replace the $8 million roster bonus he was due today, instead signed a five-year deal worth $12 million in guaranteed money with the Denver Broncos

    Well...I guess the Donks improved themselves from what they had yesterday.

    But I don't think they've improved themselves from last year at all.

    The Broncos are trying everything they can to keep pace with us and it seems they may be in a bit of panic mode as they are not the top dog in the AFC West anymore.

    Yeah, Denver and NE both seem to be a tad desperate. Henry. Yawn. He had 1200 yards last year. Big deal. We're still better.

    Personally, this doesn't excite me or worry me .. It is interesting to see the Donks sign a RB rather than building within.

    And, what the heck is going on with these FA signing so far! Is it just me or is everyone being overpaid ??

    why do I care about this? Henry's a decent back but he's nothing special. He maybe a little better then Tatum Bell but isn't a big name.
    We'll shut him down

    and if we're making the broncos panic then that's great news

    Henry used to be a fumbling machine in Buffalo, one reason they ditched him for MaGahee.

    :lol: @ the Broncos, this signing does nothing for them.

    To quote Whitney Houston on AJ wanting a 1st and a 3rd for Michael Turner ............................... "He** to the naw." We do have a Pro Bowl caliber CB/PR that we could throw in there to spice up the deal. Only problem is, you might have to get him out on work release between 1 and 5 on Sunday's this fall. What do ya think??

    Don't let Leisure respond to this :lol:


    AJ wants a 1st and a 3rd. Especially from an AFC team. If it would be an NFC I think AJ would just settle for the 1st. Just my opinion

    I think that he would settle for a 1st, he only tagged him with the 1st and 3rd to be able to dictate where he goes. JMHO.

    Sorry guys I disagree, I just can't see anyway that AJ would "just" settle for a 1st from teams like: Denver,Balt and the Jets.

    Thus the whole "dictate where he goes" remark.

    Can they put clause in trade that will limit what the team trading Turner can do? Say limit a team from trading him back into our division?

    A higher first is more valuable than a lower first and a third. So if a team with a top 15 pick comes calling, I think AJ might pull the trigger.
