... I don't feel sorry for the guy. Seems like the odds are really high he ends up with a long stint in the Big House before he steps on the field for an NFL game.


It is not a good time to be Chris Henry.

First, the professional athlete was arrested for the third time March 31, accused of punching a man and breaking a window on his car.

Then, the Bengals cut him, costing him a $520,000 salary.

Then, his house was foreclosed on – and then vandalized.

This week, he is in Hamilton County Municipal Court charged in connection with the March 31 incident.

As he was in court Wednesday, the sport utility vehicle he parked near the courthouse was repossessed.

The jury began hearing Henry’s criminal case Wednesday. The case may conclude Friday.

It's hard to feel sorry for him, for sure. On a more serious note, I brush up against people who are on hard times pretty often. Such a cascade of events is not that surprising, really. Especially when a person is not educated enough to know that the things he has are not necessarily things he owns. I mean, why on earth would he have needed a loan to buy a car in the first place? That's just a dumb kid letting the car dealership roll him for more cash.

I was wondering what was taking so long. I figured there must be a disagreement in the jury room. My guess is the NFL suspension will continue until this thing gets a verdict one way or another, so this hung jury costs him quite a bit where 2008 is concerned.

Now Henry says he may want to play for the Bengals again.

No thanks the Bengals have enough trouble.


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.

Take it for what it's worth, but I overheard a county prosecutor talking about this case earlier in the week. He said the police did a pretty terrible job handling the investigation. Also, during the trial, Henry's main witness appeared to be the most credible.

Everything that has gone wrong in his life is his fault. If the first arrest wasn't enough of a wake up call he's had opportunities since. I'm sure the Bengals reached out and tried to help him but he just kept screwing up. I can't feel very sorry for a guy that wasted his potential and ability. It really takes a special person to take All Pro NFL talent and waste it by continually getting in trouble with the law. The guy graduated from high school, he should be intelligent enough to reach out and get help if he can't handle the fame and fortune.

No thank you. He's a very good player, but let some other team deal with his troubles.
