Ex-Bronco Henry's career likely over

The news that Travis Henry has tested positive for marijuana use again and is subject to a one-year suspension means his seven-year NFL career is probably over.

A source close to Henry suggested that Henry, who'll turn 30 this year, will try to get his life in order during this pending suspension and try to play in 2009. The question for Henry is, what team will want him?

He has received no interest from teams since being cut by Denver last month and that was before this news broke. Not only is Henry closing in on 30, an ancient age for running backs, but he has endured a lot of wear-and-tear on his body.

It is very difficult to believe that any NFL team will take a flier on a troubled, worn down 30-year-old tailback next summer.
