Betts quit last year. I would rather see Rock be second instead of Mason not like he much faster. but then again it seems like Rock may have quit too.

Re: Chris Henry to work out today

I like the move. Either:
(a) it is irrelevant ultimately, or
(b) maybe serve as a warning shot for all of our backs, including CP, to step it up. None of our backs have been balling.

Redskins worked out Chris Henry today and do not plan on signing him.

Re: Chris Henry to work out today

One of the guys on ESPN 980 just asked JZ about Chris Henry. Basically he double talked it. Said they were NOT making any changes....that's not what I want to hear....but...probably BS anyway
He also said they were working to sign CH, as he worked out today

Re: Chris Henry to work out today

Why work out someone if you have no intentions of signing them?

Maybe they were unimpressed. League sources have also said Houston is interested. Maybe he did not want minimum. Who knows, it's the Redskins.

Well...if he was all that, he would probably already have a paying gig?

I assume. I am still a bit fuzzy on this whole situation. I understand that Clinton Portis has bone spurs in both ankles and will need a lighter load throughout the season. I get that. But just a few years ago Betts ran for 1000 yards. Mason has looked impressive in two preseasons. Neither of these guys can get going with just two carriers per game. Then signing Anthony Aldridge last week. It is really baffling they even tried him out.

Ah...just being a Vinny OR maybe even a lil Danny, but thats kinda one in the same..?

Who the hell knows what these guys are thinking, not very clearly thats pretty certain!

I really hope they at least case thought he might have been better than our #3,#4,#5.........backs and would have bumped somebody out of a job. But who the F knows.

Nah. I dont think Henry coming in was Vinny or Danny. That sounds like Sherman Smith and Jim Zorn. Nothing wrong with giving a workout. If ti was Danny or Vinny, don't you think he would have walked out with a deal?

In all honesty, I find much of what I see from the Skins.....deeply disturbing (although not completely). I have to assume that there is much more that I DO NOT see than what I do see, thereby tainting my opinion. To do otherwise would invite the opinion that the organization, and it's mgmt, coaches etc are incompetent....and I REALLY do not want to believe that

Re: Chris Henry to work out today

As I mentioned earlier (I think in another thread), this is what teams do. It's not at all uncommon for teams to work out veterans during the week and just get a sense of what's out there in the event they want or need to make an in-season roster change. This is nothing unusual.

What is unusal actually is that it's reported. More often than not, nothing is ever even reported

My bet is, this was reported because of the known injuries to Clinton Portis, the failure of the Redskins rushing game, the little production from Betts and Mason, and a genuine high intensity media coverage because of the kind of season the redskisn have had. Taken all that in to account, I don't think it is surprising.
