Travis Henry says he's broke
At the NFL Combine, Henry scored 7 (out of 50) on the Wonderlic exam, which measures intelligence. So, in other words, the number of Henry kids exceeds his Wonderlic score.
His attorney, Randy Kessler, estimates that his annual child support bill is $170,000. Because of that, Henry claims he's broke.
“They’ve got my blood; I’ve got to deal with it [the financial burden]...I love all my kids...I’ve lost everything in this mess I’ve gotten myself into,” Henry said.Henry, who signed a 5-year, $25 million contract in 2007, was cut by the Denver Broncos last year. Henry was arrested on September 30th as part of a cocaine-trafficking case and could spend up to ten years in prison if he is convicted.
Although he says he used protection at first, Henry says four of the women "trapped" him by claiming to be on birth control when they weren't. Clearly, Henry has never heard the phrase that starts "fool me once, shame on you..."
“My counselor asks me, ‘How can you do the same thing over and over?’ ” he said, unable to provide an answer.I think the correct response would be Henry's insane. Doesn't insanity equal doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results?
But at least, Henry never owned "more than three vehicles" at once and only spent $250,000 on jewelry, which he says "ain't a lot." The median per capita income in 2007 was roughly $50,000. So, Henry has spent the equivalent of 5 years of an average person's income on jewelry and claims it's not a "lot."
Henry, who is engaged, says he and his fiancee don't plan on having (more) children. While that is good news, I feel sorry for the ones that he already has.
