Wasted: Former NFL RB Travis Henry Sentenced to 3 Years in Prison for Cocaine Trafficking


Travis Henry, wasted talent, wasted career … just plain wasted!

Travis Henry, the former NFL Buffalo Bill, Tennessee Titan and Denver Bronco running back was sentenced to 3 years in prison for his role in financing a drug ring that trafficked cocaine from Montana to Colorado. U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull sentenced Henry to three years in a Florida prison and another five years probation.


Travis Henry: Poster child for NFL wasted talent

Judge Cebull waived the fine, stating that Travis Henry could not afford it as  according to court documents he had fathered 11 children from 10 women.

Henry, 30, was arrested last October for financing a drug ring that moved cocaine from Montana to Colorado. Henry was caught with six kilos of cocaine by undercover agents and later pled guilty to a single count of trafficking cocaine.

Henry was arrested by federal drug agents last October — just a few months after he was released by the Broncos one season into a four-year, $22.5 million contract. He was cut after allegations of drug use and a perceived lack of commitment to the team.

Cebull said it was Henry’s addiction to marijuana that destroyed his career and landed him in jail.

Henry accepted plea deal admitting to a single cocaine conspiracy charge.

Ex-NFL Player Sentenced in Drug Case

For Henry’s sake he best hope he has changed. He hardly has too many life-lines left.

During the sentencing Henry told the judge he is no longer the same person that he was back when the crimes were committed and all he wants to do is educate kids about the harsh realities of drug use.

      11 children with 10 different women? Why? After say the 3rd, 4th, or 5th time would you not use protection? I am sure he is a great father to all of them and pays all child support …. Not. While educating kids about drugs, he might want to throw in a public service announcement regarding wrapping the rascal and std’s.

      he’s thinking with the wrong head. he could care less about all those kids who will wind up suffering because of an ignorant father. and he probably doesn’t have 20.00 in the bank to help care for them either.
