    I hope something is worked out long term though.

    If anyone on this team deserves to get paid its definitely Henry. I know he is seeking a deal closer to Zeke, hopefully he comes down from that. RBs, just aren't valued as such in today's NFL, but he is owed a long term arrangement in my book. Hopefully the team doesn't mess this up because this has the potential to be very bad and very disruptive.

    Rams want out from Gurley
    Cards got out from DJ
    Jets want out from Bell
    Falcons got out from Freeman

    Every team that paid their RB big money is regretting it. JRob is being smart.

    Have said this since day one and still get
    Bashed for taking this stance. Running backs aren’t as durable as they once were and the NFL knows it’s not that hard to replace them now.

    With Henry it's not about durability as much as he needs to improve his pass catching to be in the same group as Zeke, Gurley and Bell

    Since you made that statement, can you show us with numbers? How many times was Henry targeted and how many catches and how many drops, compared to the others.

    He had at least 2 drops last yr

    But this idea hes not a capable receiver out of the backfield is silly

    Just dont ask him to line up in the slot like other RBs sometimes do and hes more than good at catching RB routes

    24 targets, 18 receptions, 2 tds.

    what is that? 75%

    wow, that is terrible. How could we possibly want a RB that only catches 75% of the passes thrown to him. Lets remove that franchise tag.
