Henry says Bills showing faith in him

Travis Henry signed a one-year contract extension that would keep him in Buffalo through 2005. Henry will make $1.3 million in salary during that final year.

"They're showing good faith in me," said Henry. "My agent set it up. I wasn't looking for a long-term contract, but I was looking for some more assurances from the team. And it allows me to make some extra money."

Henry said the reason he wasn't looking for a long-term contract was because he thinks he can improve upon the 1,438-yards-rushing, 14-touchdowns season that earned him a Pro Bowl berth in 2002, thus increasing his value more than what it currently is, and perhaps allowing him to cash in on a bigger payday in a few years.

"I've got the extension, but I still get the chance to prove myself," said Henry.

Henry has been in Buffalo all off-season working out. He's going back to Frostproof, Fla. this weekend to celebrate Easter with his family, but will be back early next week.
