Former NFL player Travis Henry is trying to make a comeback at 34 years old.

Travis Henry hasn't played in the NFL in nearly five years yet wants to make a comeback. Adam Caplan of the SidelineView.com reports that the 34-year old Henry is indeed making a comeback but I can already tell you how this will go -- it's not going to work.

Henry is 34 years old and hasn't played in the NFL since the 2007 season. Not only that, but he has a number of off-the-field question marks.

He was sentenced to three years in prison in 2009 as part of a drug trafficking bust. He also tested positive for marijuana before the 2008 season which led to a suspension.

He also reportedly has 11 children with 10 women which is probably the biggest reason he wants to return -- he probably needs the money.

Even if Henry were younger and in tip-top physical shape, he'd have a tough time getting a job after several years out of football. The fact that he's 34 years old and has other baggage makes it even less likely he'll ever return to the NFL.
