Chris Henry Released By Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks have cut running back/full back Chris Henry, according to Field Gulls' Danny Kelly. The four-year player out of Arizona leaves his third team in the past two seasons after stints with the Tennessee Titans, Houston Texans and Seahawks.

Henry began his NFL career with the Titans back in 2007 after being selected in the second round (50th overall pick) of the NFL Draft. He rushed for 119 yards and two touchdowns on 31 carries for a modest 3.8 yards per carry average. Unfortunately, 2007 would prove to be Henry's best year as he took only one carry in 2008 (for three yards) and none in 2009.

Henry spent some time with the Houston Texans later in the 2009 season, but he did not see any action on the field. The Seahawks signed Henry to the practice squad on Sept. 6th last season, and he played on special teams against the Arizona Cardinals on October 24th.

That game would mark his only appearance of the 2010 season and Henry ended his season on Jan. 4th with a foot injury. The Seahawks did sign Henry through the 2011 season on Feb. 23rd, but it appears that the team has changed its mind now. Henry will look to join his fourth team since entering the league four years ago.
