Cowboys sign Henry


Recommended Posts


DALLAS - The Dallas Cowboys addressed a major defensive weakness Wednesday by signing unrestricted free agent cornerback Anthony Henry.

Henry, who spent his first four seasons with the Cleveland Browns, will try to improve a Dallas pass defense that ranked near the bottom of the league in 2004.

The Cowboys were 20th in the NFL in pass yards allowed per game at 232.4 and only three teams gave up more than their 31 passing touchdowns.

Henry started 14 of 15 games for the Browns last season and led the team with four interceptions and 11 passes defensed. As a rookie in 2001, he led the AFC and tied for the league lead with 10 interceptions, matching a club record.

For his career, Henry has 17 interceptions in 61 games, including 39 starts.

Cowboys signed cornerback Anthony Henry, formerly of the Browns to a five-year contract with a $10 million signing bonus.

We trust Big Bill, but a $10 million signing bonus for Anthony Henry? The Ty Law rumors can stop now, as Henry should start opposite Terrence Newman.
