Chris Henry: Will Catch Football for Food


All is quiet on the Redskins Front.  In other news however, Chris Henry announced that, yes,  he’s still available.   His voice mail may be acting up because he hasn’t been getting as many calls as he might have expected.  Also, because he is not allowed to bring camera phones into court, he may have missed a few calls.  So if any of you NFL officials out there are looking for a soon-to-be-suspended wide receiver, you might need to try him again on his new cellphone.  Pretty please? 

Henry has targeted the Cowboys and Saints organizations as the most gullible, saying that he would love to play for either team should their owners suffer some sort of severe impairment of judgment.   The Dallas Cowboys have already said that they are not interested.  Perhaps Chris should have given ol’ Jerry a wine cooler first.  

In all seriousness, how bad do you have to be for the Cowboys to decide that you’re a little too sketchy for them?  They have hired players who walked out into traffic.  They’ve had cokeheads and marijuana drug-lord-wannabes.  They’ve got a guy who can make it rain indoors and a guy who owned enough military hardware to invade a small country.  And yet, we’re watching them back slowly away from Chris Henry. 

As a Redskins fan, let me be the first to say: THANK GOD WE DRAFTED A BUNCH OF RECEIVERS.  We’re no longer looking for a wideout so I don’t have to stress about this issue.  If only for this reason, I think our draft can be considered a huge success.

    The funny thing though RG, is if you look at the arrest record from the year 2000, Dallas is one of the teams with the least number of players arrested. I think publicity makes as much of an impression sometimes than reality. http://www.signonsandiego.com/sports/nfl/arrests.html?appSession=17189230216509&RecordID=&PageID=2&PrevPageID=2&cpipage=1&CPIsortType=desc&CPIorderby=Team

    In fact Washington has one more on the arrest record than Dallas ;-)

    Sure, but that’s because you recruit players who have already been arrested. If you take the players on your roster and total up their arrests over their entire career, I suspect the numbers would be a little different.

    Just because the players didn’t get arrested while they were with Dallas, it doesn’t mean they aren’t still thugs.

    Maybe Calvin Hill has something to do with the change since 2000

    yeah, staubach, you are right my friend. calvin hill was brought in for that specific reason. jerry spends millions on these KIDS and why not see to it that your investment is protected. they say that the biggest waste of money in a persons life is insurance. but tell that to the widow with 3 kids and a $100,000 house mortgage without any!!!! jerry has learned that over the years it pays to take care of the “machine” if you want it to work. alonzo spellman was cast off by the bears. he came here, and jerry sent him to a specialist, and diagnosed him with a mental disorder treatable with medication. had he stayed on them, he could have been a productive human and a good football player. the point is jones takes the time and money to try to bring that out. if that’s a bad thing, excuse me. but a kid with a million$ in his pocket and no-one to guide him is a crime waitin to happen???? these kids have talent and a good coach brings that out of them. but some of them need more than just coaching. they’re human

    but i will say that a criminal is a criminal and if he should be in jail then put him there not on the football field. the pac-mans and henry’s of the world could be just that, but then again you’ll never know till you take that chance. and in jerry’s case, if the cost is minimal, and you got the right people in place to make it happen, hey why not gamble on it?????

  • http://landryhat davedallasfan

    i think the reason dallas has backed off henry, is because he’s plain out right guilty. he’ll be suspended for a year and probably for good? so why waste your time. but if let’s say the charges were dropped, and it was found out that this 18 yearold that henry allegedly assaulted was just some punkass thug lookin for a fight and got one from a loose cannon like henry???? who knows? but the trial will bring that out i’m sure. and they don’t put you in jail or suspend you for self-defence. so this is what jerry may see in his search for talent with some of these problem children. don’t always beleive the worst till you here all the facts. mam

    Please note: I don’t think Dallas is necessarily wrong for taking on high risk/high reward problem players who are talented. In some ways I wish we would be willing to take more risks (like with Pac Man, for example). I just think that if the Cowboys say “Woah, hey. He’s a bit hard core for us. I think we’ll pass,” then that’s the sign that the player is real trouble.

    Redskins Guy. I know we all hate each others teams (which is very healthy might I add ;-)), but nothing would make me happier than a 4-0 crushing of the Steelers by the NFC East this year. as you said, make they cry in their “terrible two’s” towels.Oh do I hate the Steelers most of all….

  • http://riggosrag.com/ Redskins Guy

    Sounds good to me. The NFC East should always be the toughest, meanest, strongest division in all of football!

  • Staubach

    Its a matter of pride ;-)

    Personally, I wouldn’t mind seeing us all sweep the Ravens too. I get too many annoying Ravens fans where I live.

  • WestCoastSkins

    How about we all just sweep the AFC North and call it a day eh?
