  • Henry almost out of drug program

    Saw this over at Denver Post and thought I should post it. Maybe his signing isn't as risky as some made it out to be. Searched and didn't find this posted yet, but sorry if it has. Stay Clean Travis!!

    Henry may end up carrying clean slate

    One risk involved in the Broncos' signing of Travis Henry will be erased later this year if the running back continues to stay clean.

    Henry will rotate out of the NFL's substance abuse program after the third game of the 2007 season if he doesn't have any drug violations. If he does have a violation before then, Henry would be suspended for the entire season.

    Players rotate out of the program after two seasons if they don't have any further violations.

    Henry was suspended four games in 2005, his first season with the Tennessee Titans, after testing positive for marijuana.

    Henry, 28, was signed by Denver on Monday and will be the team's primary tailback. Henry is Denver's most experienced and most expensive tailback since Terrell Davis. Henry signed a five-year contract worth $22.5 million, with $12 million in guarantees.

    "I'm just focused on being a good Bronco and helping the team win," he said Monday.

      I hope so. This article gave me a sense of relief because I was real worried about Henry getting a year long suspension. However, if he's clean after week 3, he's out of the leagues substance abuse program.

            Hopefully someone can fill me in...

            If, after weak three, he has not smoked any weed, or used any other illegal substances, he will be taken out of the league abuse program. What does that mean?

            If he's caught, no year suspension? Back to square one?

            Thanks.

              Found this from the NFLPA's drug policy .pdf.

              Stage Two, the date upon which a player fails to comply with the
              Treatment Plan or fails to cooperate with testing, treatment,
              evaluation or other requirements imposed on him by this Policy,
              both as determined by the Medical Director or has a Positive Test.
              Notwithstanding the foregoing, without any notice a player will be
              automatically and immediately advanced to Stage Three if while in
              Stage Two he has any of the following:

              (1) two Positive Tests; or

              (2) two instances in which he fails to cooperate with
              testing, treatment, evaluation or other requirements

                    Sure thing.

                    After reading a little more, once a player fails a test in Stage 2 (Which Henry is in) they get moved up to stage 3 and get a 1 year suspension (Ricky Williams). Once a player is in Stage 3, they stay there for the remainder of their NFL career. If they stay clean in Stage 2 for 24 months, they get a fresh start, but if they get into stage 3, they throw the book at them basically.

                    Lets hope Henry doesn't have another failure, because if he stays clean, he's free and clear after week 3. That will be big if that happens.

                        No one else thinks its a big story that our new RB will be out of the NFL's substance abuse program if he's still clean by week 3?

                          Hehehe, yeah, I don't think it's such a big deal. It sure isn't performance enhancing like steroids, and it doesn't make people commit violent crimes, like alchol does.

                            Oh great, another pot head.

                            Travis Henry = Bobby Humphries.

                            Maybe Henry & Ricky Williams can get together in front of the Pentagon and try to lift it up with thier mojo.
