Via the Cincinnati Enquirer, Chris Henry’s agents, Andy Simms and Dave Lee of PlayersRep Sports, released the following statement about Henry’s tragic death.
“It is with great sadness to learn Chris has passed away. For those who knew Chris, he was nothing like his public perception. A loving and caring individual, he was thankful for what he had in life, and proud of what he had overcome.
Nobody worked harder to rehabilitate his image than Chris. He realized he made mistakes and made positive changes to his life. As a result of these changes, he had become a man that all Bengals, and NFL, fans could be proud of.
We ask that you keep Chris’ family – especially the young children he leaves behind – in your prayers. It is tragic when a life is taken so young. He was a man just realizing his potential, not just in football, but in life.”
