Broncos Release Running Back Travis Henry

New, comments
I know this news is a bit dated this afternoon but we've had so many laughs at Travis Henry's expense that I figured we need to post something about his release.

Running back Travis Henry was released by the Broncos this morning because coach Mike Shanahan said he questioned Henry's commitment. The Broncos opened a team minicamp today at Dove Valley, and the roster was updated this morning without the seven-year pro.

Said Shanahan in a release: "We did not feel his commitment to the Broncos was enough to warrant a spot on this football team."

It will never cease to amaze me the number of people in this world who blow once in a lifetime opportunities. Despite earning millions of dollars, we know that Henry has a huge monthly child support bill and conceivably no way to earn an income at the moment. He's gone from future NFL star to regular dude with money issues, all in the course of a couple of seasons. Ouch.
