The Broncos' Running Back Is a Stud

The NFL regular season starts in 9 days. I've been doing a lot of reading to prepare myself for the upcoming season. I call it prep work. I'll offer a more detailed preview in a different post, but I wanted to focus on a sleeper team -- the Denver Broncos. They have the best cornerback tandem in the league, another great offensive line, and they've just added an excellent running back named Travis Henry. He's perfect for the Broncos -- a slasher who hits the hole hard. I expect big things out of him, but I'm a little worried about off-field distractions. You see, he's sired nine children with nine different women in four states. What worries me is the fact that his lawyer says he wants to be a good parent: "I know these are a lot of kids, and there might be some questions about it," he said, "but he's a really committed father." If he's going to be a committed father to nine children living in nine different homes in four states, can he really be committed to the Broncos?
