NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 19, 2005) -- Running back Travis Henry has agreed with to a multi-year contract extension with the Tennessee Titans after being obtained in a trade with Buffalo.
Henry will be introduced at a news conference on July 20. He was acquired for a third-round draft pick.
Terms were not immediately available.
The Titans already had Chris Brown who rushed for 1,067 yards on 220 carries, and his 4.85-yard per carry average in his first season as a starter in 2004. But Brown missed five games because of injuries.
Henry, a starter since his rookie season, had consecutive 1,300-yard rushing seasons before being relegated to a backup role last October behind Willis McGahee.
"The combination of Chris Brown and Travis Henry puts us in elite company in terms of talented backfields," Titans general manager Floyd Reese said. "I don't know that it will matter who starts, because I envision both players making significant contributions throughout the season."
Henry is the University of Tennessee's all-time leading rusher with 3,078 yards.
