He is asking to be reinstated. What teams do you think will be interested in him?

I mean those seriously. I agree with CS85; not knowing him personally, I can only imagine what drives a guy like this. But looking at it objectively, he is an NFL talent, and it is the only thing he is qualified to do. His only chance of righting his life is in the NFL. IF he has any chance at all, those are the places I think he can make it happen.

Outside of any fan-talk, it is ALWAYS a tragedy when a young person goes bad. I hope he can find the sense of personal responsibility within himself to turn his life around. You guys know, I'm not a Christian; but that is the very heart of Christian doctrine, that no one is beyond redemption. I don't need to be a Christian to believe that. All lives have value. It is up to the person living to realize that value, and this kid is throwing his away. How sad.

I'd add the Bengals. What if Chad decides not to play or whatever? Do you think the Bengals would hesitate to resign him if they have a need?

I don't.

I don't.
Although I don't think it will happen, the Bengals very well could resign Henry, but it won't have anything to do with Chad Johnson. Mike Brown has always had a soft spot for guys like Henry and Odell. Henry has already expressed his desire to play for the Bengals again, and Mike Brown was the first person to reach out to him after he was released. Being that Henry wasn't found guilty, I could see Mike thinking twice about the decision to cut him.

The reason I don't think Henry will be back with the Bengals is because I don't know if there's room. Cincinnati will keep 6 receivers on its roster, and you have Chad, TJ, Simpson, Caldwell, Holt, Chatman, Maxwell, Urrutia, Purify. It seems like the team is ready to move on without him.

I hope you're right. Like I said, although it's really easy to kick the corpse of the morality of the Bengals organization, it's got to stop at some point.

But they'll take W's at just about any costs still, it seems...

In this draft they took Jason Shirley....who puts them back under the character microscope..... Shirley only played three games last year because of off-field incidents, highlighted by running his car into an apartment building in a DUI charge.

Not terribly unexpected:

Henry interested in several teams, including Bengals
By James Walker
ESPN.com
Updated: July 17, 2008, 3:00 PM ET

Now that former Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chris Henry's legal issues are behind him and he could possibly be reinstated, the question is: Where will he land next?

According to Henry and his agent Marvin Frazier, a return to the Bengals is a possibility.

"We have interest in several teams, including Cincinnati,'' Frazier said Thursday.

Frazier says it's still early in the process, but the Bengals have shown preliminary interest in Henry since his assault charge was dropped in Hamilton County (Ohio) court earlier this week. Perhaps expecting a suspension following Henry's fifth arrest, the team released Henry before the legal system ran its course.

But Henry says he wouldn't hold any grudges against the organization that drafted him in 2005. In fact, he would welcome a return to the Bengals with open arms.

"Going back to the Bengals is possible,'' Henry said. "I wouldn't mind it happening because I loved playing in Cincinnati. I got real close with all the guys out there and I planned on being out there for a long time. I really had a good time playing ball out there in Ohio."

The Bengals, in a prepared statement issued by public relations director Jack Brennan, said they could not respond to Henry's comments about a potential return.

"Chris is presently under NFL suspension, and until such time as he may be reinstated, we are not in position to comment," the team said. "Even in the event he is reinstated, he is no longer our player, and rarely if ever do we comment on any player who is not under contract with us."

Henry says he's been working out and getting back into football shape. He has no doubts that he can help a team this season. He had 88 career receptions for 1,370 yards and 17 touchdowns as Cincinnati's No. 3 receiver behind Chad Johnson and T.J. Houshmandzadeh.

Henry still has to meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to seek a lifting of his suspension. A date has not been set, but a meeting could take place within the next two weeks.

"All we could say is this would be reviewed at the appropriate time, and all factors would be considered," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Monday, when the assault charge against Henry was dropped.

Overall, Henry, 25, knows this is an important time for him, wherever he signs, and he's looking at this opportunity as a new beginning in his life and football career.

"That's what I'm trying to make it,'' Henry said. "I'm just focusing on what I need to be doing off the field so I can keep doing what I do on the field. I just have to be smart and handle myself like a professional at all times. Off the field, if I'll handle situations like I'm supposed to everything else will take care of itself."

He was suspended by the NFL for eight games last year. When he returned for the second half of the season, he caught 21 passes for 343 yards and two touchdowns.

Henry had nine touchdown catches in 13 games in 2006, when he was suspended by the league for two games and benched for another by coach Marvin Lewis because of misconduct.

Henry's legal problems include arrests for possession of marijuana in northern Kentucky, carrying a concealed weapon in Florida, drunken driving in Ohio and providing alcohol to minors in northern Kentucky.
