Travis Henry consistently produces, both on and off the field


Travis Henry got banged up in a game against the Cowboys a few weeks back and his status for opening day has been somewhat up in the air. However, it’s starting to look like Henry will be healthy for the start of the season, which is great news for all of his fantasy owners. But, more importantly, it means that Henry will still be the family breadwinner who’s bringing home the bacon to his kids. All nine of them!

Oh, and did we mention that the nine kids were with nine different women!

People can judge me all they want,” Henry said as he watched his team warm up for its preseason game Saturday night against the Cleveland Browns at Invesco Field at Mile High. “But only God can judge me.”

Henry’s personal life was recently revealed after he received a child-support judgment in a DeKalb County, Ga., court. It’s not the first time a professional athlete has been involved in such controversy. Former NBA star Shawn Kemp has seven children with six women and Derrick Thomas, the late linebacker of the Kansas City Chiefs, had seven children with five women.

Nine children with nine women is a new standard.

“A lot of stuff that’s been put out there isn’t true, but I’m not going to get into that right now,” Henry said. “The important thing is I want to take care of my kids really and truly. It’s all good.

Damn, if Henry got as much exposure as Tom Brady, Tiger Woods, Jeff Gordon and LeBron James for fathering a child then ESPN would have to dedicate an entire channel to his procreative efforts.

And for all you fantasy GM’s out there, here’s a word of advice for draft day. While his production won’t be nearly as high, Henry slightly edges out guys like Shaun Alexander, Frank Gore and Larry Johnson if you’re in a point per pregnancy league.

    "Only God can judge me…" — And he will. Good luck with that Travis. He must not read the same Bible as I do but forgiveness exists so he’s got that going for him.

     7Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 8The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature[a]will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.

    Galatians 6:7-8
