Marker Henry gives Titans extra opportunities [4:56 AM]
Nashville Tennessean reports: 'Bills President Tom Donahoe portrayed the long-running negotiations as painful. "It's probably been almost as difficult as childbirth, at least from what my wife tells me," he said. "But we're really glad it's over. ... Tennessee has shown the most consistent interest in Travis throughout the whole process. ..."'

Marker Bills, not Titans, say Henry deal done [4:56 AM]
Nashville City Paper reports: '“We don’t want to make the trade unless can make sure of some kind long-term benefit from it,” Reese said. “He’s 26, so he’s probably not going to play for another eight to 10 years, but we do need some kind of assurances that he’s going to be here for a little while."'

Marker Bills pin blame on Jags [4:56 AM]
Florida Times Union reports: 'According to a league source, the Jaguars had worked out a long-term contract extension with Henry last week and offered a third-round pick to the Bills as compensation. After realizing the Titans had made the same offer, the Jaguars were prepared to counter with a second-round choice but said they never got the chance because Donahoe stopped returning phone calls before finishing the trade with Tennessee.'

Marker It’s still full speed ahead for Beebe [4:56 AM]
Green Bay Press Gazette reports: '“You can’t teach world-class speed,” Beebe said. “I can’t make everybody a 4.2, 4.3, 4.4 in the 40. But certainly, if a kid’s a 5.0 flat, I can get him to a 4.8, and in NFL standards, that’s huge. Even at the high school level, grade school level, if you can make a kid faster and quicker, now he starts instead of just sitting on the bench. We get kids those numbers so they can get noticed and get their name back on that chart.”'

Marker Henry Dealt [9:33 PM] reports: 'Travis Henry was granted his wish as the Buffalo Bills dealt the disgruntled running back to the Tennessee Titans. The Bills reached agreement in principle to trade Henry to the Titans for a third round pick in the 2006 draft. The deal is contingent on Henry passing a physical.'

Marker Bills Line Starting to Take Shape [9:30 PM] reports: '"There's some (cohesion), but I think it still has to grow," Mularkey said. "We've been tinkering with it since we've been here. Some of that, the problem is that with the five guys you've got to get them here all at the same time. The first year here, that wasn't the case for one reason or another, whether it was us making moves or putting different guys at different positions … This year, having two new linemen I think we've got a lot of work done with them here, but I think that's going to grow as we get into camp without question. The more they're together the better they're going to be."'

Marker Patience Key In Henry Deal to Titans [9:29 PM] reports: '"I certainly want to thank Travis Henry for what he did while he was here in Buffalo," Donahoe said. "He was a warrior and an outstanding player for us. It became obvious to us toward the end of last season and at the conclusion of the season that Travis just did not want to be here. We really are not interested in having players here who do not want to be here. It just creates a distraction."'

Marker Bills clear crowded backfield; deal Henry to Titans [4:37 PM]

Marker Buffalo Bills NFL Preview [4:33 PM]
CNN/SI reports: 'Losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers' second- and third-stringers 29-24 last January forced the Bills' front office to do some soul-searching. The conclusion? While Buffalo's defense and special teams were playoff-caliber, the offense was not. And while it looks like a giant leap of faith turning the keys over to an untested quarterback in Losman, the feeling on the staff is that he can do no worse than the tired warhorse Bledsoe. And he has the potential to do much better, particularly when plays break down, because of his superior mobility. Buffalo was literally a play or two from making the playoffs in 2004. If Losman makes one or two more than Bledsoe, he and his strong supporting cast will crash the party in '05.'

Marker Bills Acquire 2006 Draft Pick [4:32 PM] reports: 'The Buffalo Bills announced Monday that the team has acquired an undisclosed draft pick in the 2006 NFL Draft from the Tennessee Titans for veteran running back Travis Henry.'

Marker Nothing misleading [12:35 PM] reports: 'There are reports the Jaguars attempted to sweeten the deal with an 11th-hour offer of a second-round pick, but those reports remain unsubstantiated and it's possible a second-rounder wouldn't have gotten the deal done either. Go back to reason number one. It's the overbearing consideration in all of this. Buffalo didn't want to trade Henry to the Jaguars. That's the bottom line.'

Marker Fast start sets up a spectacular finish [8:53 AM]

But if the Titans don't manage an extension, they'll play this season with two solid running backs in Henry and Chris Brown and sort the rest out later.'

Marker Henry happy about Tennessee return [5:01 AM]
Nashville City Paper reports: '“I haven’t gotten a chance to meet Chris Brown, but as far us co-existing, I think it’ll be great. Everybody’s just got to know their role,” he said in the TV phone interview. “Whatever role the coaches give me or give him, it’s a team sport first. I’ve been in a situation a couple of different times where there’s more than one back on the team, and competition makes you better overall. I feel like if both we both understand that and the coaches let us know what both our roles are, then things should go good.”'

Marker Titans say team still negotiating with Bills' Henry [5:00 AM]
AP reports: 'However, Titans' general manager Floyd Reese said through a spokesman Sunday, "It is still an ongoing process." He said no terms have been reached for a trade or for a contract extension.'

Marker Jags may have missed big opportunity [4:59 AM]
Florida Times Union reports: How did Henry slip through the fingers of the Jaguars? If indeed, as is being reported, he has, by agreeing to contract terms with Tennessee. What happened? Was it money? Bad breath? Did Fred Taylor have a Henry voodoo doll?'

Marker No Bills on the NFL's long list of bad actors [8:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'How refreshing that somehow, someway, the Bills have steered clear of trouble, avoided the courts, done their home city proud. Just look around the league. Upstanding behavior isn't something that should be taken for granted.'

Marker Screen passes [8:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills hit their bye week and midseason with a 5-3 record, which includes a 2-2 road mark. They won only one of three AFC East games, but the playoffs seem well within reach.'

Marker Henry closer to exit [8:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'But a league source said Jacksonville hadn't heard from the Bills in days despite repeated attempts to contact them. Jacksonville wanted Henry so badly it might have given up a second-rounder if given a chance to make a counter offer, the source said.'

Marker Wilson trying to catch NFL dream [8:24 AM]
Arkansas Democrat Gazette reports: 'Wilson, who went undrafted after a solid career at Arkansas, already has seen that dark side of his fledgling career. So given another opportunity to stick with an NFL franchise, he understands what’s at stake when he reports to the Buffalo Bills training camp later this month. "You don’t know if or when the next opportunity is going to come," Wilson said. "You work out with the hopes of another opportunity, even though the opportunity may never come. So you just try to find your niche and find a home."'

Marker Oh, Henry! Titans reportedly deal for RB [8:03 AM]
Murfreesboro Daily News Journal reports: 'In making the deal for Henry, Tennessee not only will strengthen its own lineup but also will keep a division rival from doing the same. According to the report, Jacksonville already had agreed to terms on a contract extension with Henry, who is scheduled to make a base salary of $1.25 million in this, the last of a five-year contract he signed with the Bills. The Jaguars, however, were slower to meet Buffalo's asking price of a third-round draft pick, and it's possible that the Bills gambled that Tennessee, which overhauled its roster this offseason, will finish with a worse record than Jacksonville and, therefore, the Titans' third-round pick will be a better overall choice.'

Marker Inside slant [6:11 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'Tennessee and Seattle remain in the picture for Henry but no team has done as much work on a deal than Jacksonville. The big hurdle remained signing Henry, who has one year left at $1.25 million, to a long-term extension. The Bills remain adamant about getting a third-round pick in exchange, and could be holding out for a provision where by that pick becomes a second-rounder were Henry to reach specified statistical marks.'

Marker Notes, quotes [6:09 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'The Bills linebacker corps is very deep, but the club is interested in how free agent rookie Liam Ezekiel performs in camp. Ezekiel, 6-0, 249, played Division I-AA ball at Northeastern but dominated his competition and is incredibly strong, doing 33 reps of 225 pounds during his workouts.'

Marker Henry deal gets Titans tough back [4:21 AM]
Nashville Tennessean reports: 'Henry, who could not be reached for comment yesterday, is expected to be in Nashville tomorrow to be introduced as a Titan.'

Marker Oh Henry! [4:20 AM]
Nashville Tennessean reports: 'Let's be clear about one thing: The arrival of Travis Henry does not make the Titans a playoff team. Far from it. With or without Henry, this team is still closer to 5-11 than it is 11-5.'
