Henry's success has come from his great NFL combine in 2007. Since then he's shown to be a pretty freakish athlete but not the best running back out there.
IF we were to sign him as our primary kick returner you don't think that would sit too well with the Rock?

Maybe he was once a punter. Not sure how you could actually take any more playing time away from Betts.

Re: Chris Henry to work out today

betts has not done himself any favors recently with his boneheaded end of the game plays...add that to ineffective running when he's gotten the chances and it equals replacement (talk).

Of course the speed thing wasn't the worse thing for Jeff Fisher to consider which is why he drafted Chris Johnson the following year.

Re: Chris Henry to work out today

We currently have 5 RBs on the roster list.. And yet we continue to burden Portis with carries, regardless of his injuries.. Play Betts couple of times.. Barely play Mason.. Never play Alridge.. And then we bring in Henry? Granted, it's just a visit.. But still, it tells that our coaches are still searching for a running back?

This is one of the most confusing move FO ever did.. I won't be able to fathom this..

I've been trying to fathom this since the thread was posted. Seems like a vey dumb move. I dont understand it at all.

I'll give a surprising defense and say this doesn't sounds like a Vinny or Dan move but a coaching move. Sounds to me like three things. One, Portis ankle spur issues will be an issue all season. Two, the Redskins confidence in in Betts and Mason appears to be waning. Three, the suggestion likely came from Sherman Smith and Zorn went with it.

Exactly. We can't run block, so let's not put the cart ahead of the horse.
