Henry: Pacman like a brother
Wednesday on "The SIRIUS Blitz": on SIRIUS NFL Radio, hosts Adam Schein and Solomon Wilcots spoke with former Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry. Henry discussed, among other topics, his current legal situation, departure from the Bengals and his former college teammate at West Virginia, cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones.
Wilcots: Where are you right now with the legal process and where are you right now with seeking another team to call home?
Henry: Well, right now with the legal thing I’m pretty much waiting for my last court date which is next month. And other team wise, I’m just sitting back waiting to hear something from somebody.
Schein: If I’m a general manager why do I believe, if I sign Chris Henry, that Chris Henry will stay out of trouble?
Henry: Because, I mean, I would have to sit down and talk to him and explain what type of a guy I am and just let them know what I bring to the table as far as playing ball and hopefully he can believe in me and give me a chance.
Schein: How are you doing mentally?
Henry: I’m fine, you know? Only I know that I really ain’t in the wrong for anything. I’m fine. I’m kind of hurt being released from the Bengals because I really did think I was going to be here for a long time. Like I said, just trying to stay positive and trying to see where I’m going to be at in here the future. Hopefully I’ll be still living my dream, playing ball.
Wilcots: Are you able to leave the house to go work out? Are you able to go run routes? What football related things are you able to do at this point in time?
Henry: Actually I’ve been totally locked down in my home. Only working out I’ve been doing is push-ups every day.
Schein: Have you had any contact with your former college teammate, Pacman Jones?
Henry: Yeah, me and Pacman talk all the time. He’s like my brother and we’re always talking.
Schein: Are you convinced that his demons are a thing of the past?
Henry: Yeah. We were young and got caught up in making some mistakes and, you know, people mature and learn from their mistakes. I think we’re both going to be fine.
