The Dallas Cowboys didn't pass on a defensive back this time, filling one of their pressing needs when they signed cornerback Anthony Henry on the first day of free agency Wednesday night.

Henry, who started 14 of 15 games for Cleveland last season, is likely to be the starting right cornerback in Dallas opposite Terence Newman.

Last offseason, the Cowboys didn't pursue another cornerback in free agency after Mario Edwards left for Tampa Bay. They ended up starting four players at the position during a 6-10 season.

After being a fourth-round pick in 2001, Henry set a Browns team record with 10 interceptions as a rookie. The last Dallas player with at least 10 interceptions was Everson Walls with 11 as a rookie in 1981.

Henry, who had just seven interceptions the past three seasons, will be reunited with defensive backs coach Todd Bowles. Parcells last month hired Bowles, who spent the last four seasons in Cleveland.

I dont know much about him, but he's supposedly a pretty good corner. I was kind of hoping for one of the corners that Dallas was supposedly looking for in TRD's thread. (LINK), specifically Rolle, Baxter, or Smoot. Hopefully it'll work out, they need a strong corner who can make plays.

Henry is a pretty good corner, he has good speed and good hands and can cover pretty well. He's also a pretty good tackler and can hit, between him and Roy Williams the Dallas secondary could be pretty fierce.
