Travis Henry wants to make a comeback

Here’s something we didn’t think we’d be writing about on Monday morning.

According to Adam Caplan of Sirius XM Radio and, former NFL running back Travis Henry is trying to make a comeback for the 2012 season. Henry was last seen when he received a three-year federal prison sentence for his role in a drug trafficking organization in 2009, a sentence that has now come to an end and one that apparently left Henry feeling like he could make a return to professional football.

It’s fair to wonder if Henry wasn’t using some of his own supply when he came up with that plan.

Henry turns 34 in October and has plenty of baggage that isn’t related to that prison term. Henry was suspended for a year by the league in 2008 because of positive marijuana tests and he fathered at least 11 children with 10 different women, leading to a lot of issues with child support payments during his playing career. Those needs haven’t gone away, which likely leaves Henry in need of money but, again, it is hard to see a team opting for Henry when younger backs who haven’t spent the last few years in prison are available.

Henry ran for 6,086 yards and 38 touchdowns during his seven years with the Bills, Titans and Broncos.

    Guy is Cromartie’s Yoda.

    11 children means lots and lots of child support. “trying to make the NFL” beats getting a real job.

    Maybe he and Cromartie can open a Daddy Daycare franchise.

    Apparently you can’t say, “What does Tiki think about this?”

    Considering that Mr. Goodell doesn’t care if felons play in his league, one can’t blame a guy for trying. What else is he supposed to do? Wal-Mart and the likes of, won’t hire felons. The NFL is the only place one can turn.

    “…he fathered at least 11 children with 10 different women”

    Dude makes Cromartie look like a priest.

    Maybe his lawyer Saul Goodman knows a guy who knows a guy that can get him a try out

    So strange how gigantic bills cause people to realize their mistakes. Guess what, Trav? Nobody wants you.

    Dude makes Cromartie look like a priest.

    Not condoning his route to procreation but when you list priest with children, I get an uneasy feeling….

    would you rather read 11 children molested at 10 different parishes?

    I didn’t ask Mr Henry how many kids I should have, by how many different women so I don’t feel he has to ask me, or you for that matter…………
