welcome to Denver, Travis.

The Broncos went out and got the #2 on the list I compiled last night. Again, Travis Henry has had fumble trouble for a good portion of his career, but he's got the capability to be a feature back, and that's really what the team needs at this point rather than trying to compile two or three backs, despite the league trend towards two-back systems.

Again, at least Jay Cutler will have a backfield to go to next year, and while it would have been awesome to pry Willis McGahee from the Bills, the cost probably would have been too high, while a $12 million signing bonus on a five-year deal for a feature back isn't too bad.

I actually think this was the best (and most cost-efficient) move. Rhodes would have been my second choice. No lie.

Definitely a great signing for the Broncos. Henry showed last year he still has some life left in him, and obviously he should only benefit from playing in that system.

Not as good as McGahee as you said but also not a bad signing, er... as you said....
