According to's Adam Caplan, free agent RB Travis Henry wants to return to the NFL.

Henry will be 34 in October and has been in federal prison for drug trafficking since 2009. He was also suspended by the NFL in 2008 for failing a drug test. It's really hard to see any team even kicking the tires here.

Former Broncos RB Travis Henry was sentenced Wednesday to three years in federal prison for financing a cocaine trafficking operation.

Arrested last October, just months after his release from the Broncos, Henry later pled guilty to the one count of trafficking. He'll be 34 when he gets out of jail, and then faces five years of probation. Henry blamed the crime on needing money to support his nine children from nine different women.

Lawyers for former Broncos RB Travis Henry say he deserves a light sentence in his federal cocaine trafficking case because he was "duped" by friends in the drug trade.

Kind of like the way fantasy owners were "duped" into thinking he could be productive in 2007? Henry has already pled guilty and will be sentenced on July 15. He's facing a possible sentence of 10 years or more in federal prison.

Free agent RB Travis Henry was formally taken into custody late Wednesday for violating the conditions of his bond by consuming alcohol.

Just getting what's left out of his temporary freedom. Henry was out on bond after signing an April plea deal requiring him to serve a mandatory 10 years to life in prison for "conspiracy to possess cocaine with intent to distribute." Henry probably isn't even worth posting about anymore, because he isn't getting back in the league. The 30-year-old's fall has been precipitous since Mike Shanahan signed him to a $22.5 million contract on March 5, 2007.

Former Broncos RB Travis Henry was arrested yet again Tuesday by U.S. Marshals in Auburndale, Florida.

Officials didn't say exactly what the arrest was for, but it's believed to be related to Henry's previous narcotics case. Henry and another man were found with six pounds of marijuana and 6.6 pounds of cocaine last October.

Former Broncos RB Travis Henry has signed a plea deal with Florida prosecutors, accepting a charge that carries a mandatory 10 years-to-life in prison, $4 million in fines, and five years of supervised release.

In exchange for having two counts of cocaine distribution dropped, Henry will admit to conspiracy to possess cocaine with intent to distribute. Henry was arrested on the charges in October. He's safe to drop in dynasty leagues.

Ex-Broncos RB Travis Henry was jailed again Tuesday, this time for contempt of court.

Henry is on trial in Florida, facing federal drug charges involving a cocaine transaction. He also has legal troubles in Georgia where his $3,000 monthly child support order is causing problems.

Coach Mike Shanahan called ex-Broncos RB Travis Henry's arrest on cocaine trafficking charges "a shame."

"Obviously we released him," Shanahan said. "But for him to experience what he's experiencing right now, I don't wish that on anybody. That's really a shame. He's going to spend a number of years in prison."

Ex-Broncos RB Travis Henry was charged with trafficking cocaine in Denver on Tuesday.

He and an accomplice were arrested "as a result of a multi-kilogram cocaine transaction," according to the Drug Enforcement Agency. Henry has been suspended for all of 2008 and this ends his career, if it wasn't done already.

NFL suspended free agent RB Travis Henry for "at least" one season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

This wraps up his career. A one-time Pro Bowler, Henry finishes with a solid 4.1 YPC average. In his second season (with Buffalo), Henry ran for 1438 yards (4.4 YPC) and 13 TDs. After some injury plagued years, he looked rejuvenated with the Titans in 2006, but fell off a cliff in Denver last season.

It was reportedly revealed Saturday that free agent Travis Henry will be suspended for "at least a year," according to the National Football Post.

We can't find this anywhere else, but it's no surprise. Henry tested positive for marijuana before being cut in June. We doubt we'll see him again.
Sun, Aug 31, 2008 02:13:00 PM

Citing two NFL sources, the Denver Post disputes a report that the Broncos knew of Travis Henry's failed drug test before cutting him in June.

"We didn't know about it so that had nothing to do with (releasing Henry)," said a team official. "He missed treatments and some workouts and just didn't get with the program. It finally got to the point where (Mike Shanahan) said good riddance." Henry himself likely did know he'd tested positive, however, which is probably why he quit showing up.

Free agent Travis Henry reportedly tested positive for marijuana before he was released by the Broncos in June.

The team originally blamed Henry's release on his lack of commitment, but there was more to the story. This is probably why Henry stopped showing up - he knew he was done. "He's just too inconsistent as a person," coach Mike Shanahan said at the time. "When you're too inconsistent as a person, you usually aren't going to win championships."
