Seems that as long as former Bengals wide out Chris Henry can land a job with another team, his time under house arrest will be lessened even to the point where he may be able to play. A judge ruled on Monday that Henry will be released from house arrest and court-ordered electronic monitoring so that he can go and try and revive his NFL career with another club.
Henry’s attorney, Perry Ancona, told a judge that his client had a tryout with a team, asking him to be allowed to get off house arrest to go. The team was not identified. The 24-year-old Henry was released last month after an issue in March where he was accused of assault and criminal damaging. Henry has pled not guilty to the charges.
He spent the first eight games of the 2007 season suspended for prior arrests. When he was able to get on the field last year, he caught 21 passes for 343 yards and two touchdowns. He has a career 88 catches for 1370 yards and 17 touchdowns. He caught 9 TD’s in the 2006 season.
