Jags to acquire Henry
 
AP reports acknowledging their concerns about RB Fred Taylor's availability this season, the Jaguars are close to completing a long-discussed trade for Buffalo Bills RB Travis Henry. Jaguars HC Jack Del Rio said Thursday in a statement released by the team that a deal for Henry, a Pro Bowl selection in 2003, could be completed "in the next few days or week." "The fact that we have an opportunity to acquire a running back of this kind of talent is something we have to look at so we're looking at it,'' Del Rio said in the statement. "This may or may not happen, but we're protecting our interests, and any time we think we can acquire somebody who can help us, we're going to do that." The Jaguars are pursuing Henry, who at 26 is nearly three years younger than Taylor, despite what Del Rio described as an encouraging workout by Taylor earlier this week.

For our VA Saint fans, I guess this move will move Pearman further down the depth chart. Can't say it wasn't unexpected... I wonder what role he will have with this team now because there are a lot of backs on that team.

definitely worth a late selection in a fantasy draft
