Was looking at Over the Cap yesterday, there are currently 26 players scheduled to be off contract at the end of this season, mentioned in another thread yesterday this team could have a vastly different look in 12 months time.

 

For those interested scroll down after clicking the link below it has the JRob interview from today.

The franchise tag would be  10-12 million for Henry which is pretty reasonable and cheaper than giving a big contract.

 

I don’t think you should resign RB’s for more than 5 or 6 million a year, though. They’re too easily replaced and wear down in their second contracts 99% of the time.

True, but Henry is a guy who can really take a beating and due to his excellent physical condition and limited wear for his first 3 years in the league, he may be an exception to this. Henry never wears down and is in amazing shape. 

 

So you may just tag him for the year and then extend him after if you're going to, in order to see him produce consistently for another year.

You have to exercise it even if you don’t think you’re actually gonna pay him it. 

Not necessarily - not if they are planning to move on from him and want the compensatory pick.

Potentially. He's never been injured but all it's gonna take is one injury. If Henry loses his speed I don't know if he's that good anymore. Gore was a monster before his injuries and then was scrappy enough to get 1k every year afterwards.

I want to see a full year of consistently good production from Henry before I consider extending him for big money.  4 games are one thing and 16 is another.  He got to 1k yards, barely, last season with some of the most dominant games we've ever seen towards the end of the season.  He was terrible early.  He's got to put together a ~1500 yard season and prove that he can be a bell cow guy who is also dependable to pass block and can catch the occasional ball out of the backfield.  If he can't do that, I think you take the comp pick and move on.  I like Henry but he's too one dimensional and inconsistent as of this moment.  

Henry might be a good candidate for the transition tag

Absolutely.  I would actually be kinda surprised if they extend him unless he just blows up this year.  I know they like him but they have to recognize his flaws.  Transition tag seems like a solid strategy with a guy like that.

He won't get a lot of money since he's not a 3 down RB regardless of his rushing stats

You don't think so?  I really haven't thought about it but you're probably right.

Henry is fine as a receiver. He’s not as fluid as Lewis but he can catch alright. 

 

If hes smart. Most of this offseason will be dedicated to foot speed, routes, and pass pro.
