    Our backfield is suddenly VERY crowded. Someone is gonna have to go. I'd say Jarrett Payton is a goner. Damien Nash will have to have an amazing camp to stick around. If LenDale White stays healthy, I cant imagine us keeping both Chris and Travis.

    Something to keep in mind... this is the last year of Chris Browns contract. So if they dont think he's the answer long term, you might as well trade him while he still has some value.

    And Henry is playing for minimum wage. This puts some pressure on both of them, they have to step up and stay healthy.

    It makes the most sense to trade Henry if they can get any value (aye, there's the rub). Brown is seemingly a better compliment to White than Henry.

    I'd trade one of them, personally, but I don't know what kind of value we can get for either.

    There is also the issue that we don't want to hand over anything to White. Make him get in tip top shape and earn the carries imo. Besides, Henry costs us nothing and we certainly can't give away our best running back because our rookie has potential.

    chris brown when he is healyth nd 100% cood be a veryy very good back.... i am in love with the titans nd there is one titan who i dont like nd it is travis henry.... he doesnt deserve to be a titan.... we shood either trade him or release him or do sumthing just to leave it with chris brown nd lendal splitting carries nd then u still got payton nd nash to be the back ups but u wont even need them.... i realli think that the combo or c Brown nd L White cood soon be the best runnig back duo in the leage nd it will happen.....love the titans draft choosings

    Henry is clearly the odd man out....his last name isn't a colour.

    Remember when Thunder and Lightning came to Tennessee.

    pregame crap from PFW

    http://archive.profootballweekly.com/content/archives/features_2000/daily_092900.asp

    and the game summary

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/recaps/2000/10/01/titans_giants/

    Barber carried the ball five times for two yards, and Dayne lost one yard on three carries. Collins was New York's leading rusher with 19 yards on three carries." - lol



    man I miss having a D that would punch the other team in the mouth and make them quit

    Henry's value..

    Since we re-signed him to a smaller contract henry might be worth a 5th rd pick. Someone will take a chance on him to get a decent backup.

    If we did that we need to sign brown to a longer term deal. His contract runs out this year. Brown is a nice change of pace to white and is good catching the ball out of the backfield. He could have a fine career here getting about 1/3 of the carries and being our third down back. I'm sure that is not what he wants though. He is going to want to start somewhere.

    Brown's trade value is diminished a bit by the fact he only is signed for a year. Given he only counts $605,000 against the cap he is more valuable to us just to keep him on.

    Pretty darned exciting. We have white motivated to show that he was worth a first rd pick and brownie motivated to get a nice contract next year. Then we have henry to boot. It would be nice to have steve back so he could enjoy a good running game for a change. We are going to sloberknock some people this year!

    Smash mouth is back on the banks of the cumberland!
