Default Drew Henson Released

Drew Henson was released by the Cowboys on Thursday. Do you think we should sign him? I think he could be groomed into a solid #2 for us...

I'm content with Charlie as our #2. Plus I'm not exactly sure Henson is content with being a #2 in the league. I believe that was half his problem in Dallas.

To answer your question - no, absolutely not.

I'm not a huge Charlie fan, but he looked pretty good to me in the Vikes game and seems to enjoy a very good rapport with Ben both on and off the field. We're more than likely going to have Omar waiting in the wings and I just have a good feeling about this kid. I'm comfy with our QB depth at this point.

Just curious, SteelermaniacXL - why do you feel so strongly about Drew Henson? I don't know all that much about him, but I'd like your take on him, please.

Maybe he could get a tryout at center for the Brownies.

Yeah, I heard he was a pretty good baseball player. A pitcher I believe. I'm content with Batch as our # 2 guy.

I wouldn't want Henson -talk about a step backwards from Charlie. But I'm not very comfortable with the idea of relying on Batch to stay free of injury. He can move the offense down the field well. It's just the momentary laspes that results into interceptions that frustrate me.
