Henry's Child Support Judgments Won't Draw NFL Discipline

Broncos running back Travis Henry's child support judgments might expose him to catcalls across the league this season, but they don't put him in line for disciplinary action by the NFL.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported over the weekend that court documents in a Georgia child support case show Henry, 28, has fathered nine children by nine women in four southern states and has been ordered to pay child support for seven of them.

He also had to borrow money from his former team, the Titans, to fulfill one of those judgments, according to court records.

Titans Agree To Terms With DT Corey Simon

The Tennessee Titans agreed to terms on a contract with free agent defensive tackle Corey Simon today. The 6-foot-2, 320-pound lineman joins the Titans after spending the 2005-06 campaigns with the Indianapolis Colts. He played his first five NFL seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. ?Corey brings a combination of run-stuffing size and pass rushing ability to the defensive tackle position,? said Titans General Manager Mike Reinfeldt. ?Prior to last season, he has been a consistent and productive player who contributed to playoff teams and we are excited to see him get a second chance here with the Titans to prove he still has that ability."

Henry Borrowed Money From Titans To Pay Child Support?

The Titans had no comment Sunday about a published report that they loaned former running back Travis Henry $9,800 for child support payments.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that Henry, 28, fell behind on support payments for a child in DeKalb County, Ga., to Jameshia Beacham, 29, that were mandated by a previous order. Threatened with jail, he borrowed the money from the Titans to pay the bill, according to court records.

Henry, a former University of Tennessee star, played for the Titans in 2005-06. He was acquired in a trade with Buffalo in the summer of 2005, and received a base salary of $1.25 million that season.

Last year Henry made the NFL veteran minimum of $585,000.

The newspaper reported that Henry, 28, has fathered nine children by nine women in Tennessee, Florida, North Carolina and Georgia. He has been ordered to provide child support for seven of them, according to court records involving the child living in DeKalb County.

Henry, who now plays for the Broncos, has a $25 million contract and a base monthly salary approaching $50,000. Court records show that he spent $100,000 for a Mercedes and $146,000 for jewelry.

Titans' Young Finds His Groove In Win Over Bills

Playing only the first half, the Titans' Vince Young went 13-of-19 for 162 yards passing and a touchdown, and also scored a TD rushing in a 28-17 preseason victory over the Bills.

It was a much-needed performance from Young and a starting offense that had failed to produce a score in eight possessions in a 27-24 win in sloppy and wet conditions at New England last week.
