    Travis Henry to Colorado


    On the same day that running back Travis Henry was due to receive an $8.3 million roster bonus from his former team, the Titans, Henry hauled in $12 million in guaranteed money from the Denver Broncos as part of a five-year deal, according to Adam Schefter of the NFL Network.

    Henry was released by the Titans on Saturday after Tennessee opted not to pay him the big-money roster bonus.
    Per Schefter, Henry was also scheduled to visit the Raiders, Packers, and Giants.

    So Henry becomes the latest tailback in a line of performers who have benefited from a perfectly-executed blocking scheme, which we probably should refer to as the "Nancy Kerrigan," since it is premised in large part on taking defenders out at the knee.

    Though Terrell Davis gets borderline pissy when the issue of player versus system is raised, we're convinced that Davis, a second-day pick a decade ago, would have been just a guy in any other offense, and that the holes created by the Broncos' line allowed him to become who he was until one of those linemen ironically took him out at the knee while pursuing a defender after a turnover.

    Others who have performed well in this offense include Olandis Gary, Mike Anderson, Clinton Portis, Reuben Droughns, Ron Dayne (for a game or two), Tatum Bell, and Mike Bell.

    Henry, as we've recently mentioned, was suspended for four games in 2005 for violation of the substance abuse policy.
    He was acquired that same year by the Titans from the Bills in a trade.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Not a bad signing, he had a solid year last season.Broncos are looking pretty scary out in the AFC.
