Cheese back to Tennessee??? Eh, Guess Not.

Henry trade talks finished
"The Titans made a run at disgruntled Bills running back Travis Henry during last weekend's draft, but they failed to offer enough to entice Buffalo to part with Henry. "His name did come up, but it is very unlikely anything else will be made of it," Titans coach Jeff Fisher told The Tennessean. "As far as I'm concerned, it was a draft day issue." The Bills were seeking at least a third-round pick for Henry, but Bills president and GM Tom Donahoe told Buffalo reporters that no one offered such a deal during the draft."
Now this would've been sweet. Travis Henry was one of the lynchpins, along with Peerless Price, Travis Stephens and Tee Martin, of the 1998 Tennessee National Championship Team. He's had a nice career so far with the Bills, but got hurt last year and spent most of the season on the bench watching Miami grad Willis McGahee (feh!) steal his spotlight. Bringing "The Cheese" to the Titans would have been a great fit, and I think any former UT players they can add to their roster can only help.

But alas, not to be.

Hopefully Travis will land somewhere he can make a contribution. Just not anywhere in the AFC South. :)
