I like this situation a lot. Henry was cut, so we're only talking about money here instead of picks. Of course, he comes with his own issues ("substantial" ones), but he had nice production last year and I think he'd fit Denver's system pretty well.

Crossing my fingers that this actually works out... perhaps we'll see a play or two like this:

well if he doesnt resign with the Titans i really hope he goes to Denver, so he can team up with Jay. I think Henry would be a very good fit in Denver and would solve your running back situation

I'm pretty happy with how this worked out. I think his running style will fit well in Denver's offense.

Henry signed a five-year contract that includes $12 million of guaranteed money. He is familiar with Heimerdinger's scheme at Tennessee, so he should fit in quite well.

Actually he never played for Dinger, but I agree that he is a good fit anyways.

Im kinda relieved we got Henry instead of McGahee
Less baggage, less cost, relatively same speed. Henry can handle 20-30 carries a game, which is what we need from a back to take some weight off cutlers shoulders.
I got a little scared off by mcgahee when i heard he danced around too much and was hesitant to hit holes. That is awful if you are in a one cut system.

And as you can see, henry still has the afterburners. There isnt an average speed RB in this league that could hit a hole like that.

And for this highlight i dont think there is a back in this league with his power that could cut out like this

Perfect example of what type of runner he is, and why im glad we didnt get willis.

yea...im extremely happy with the Henry...he has always been a good running back just whenever he had good seasons the team he played for never wanted to pay him...but now on the broncos i think he will better the good, but anyone can run for 1,000..but im extremely pleased with the pick saves a lot of money over willis
