Vikes sign Henson

3 posts in this topic

I heard from Dallas that the Cowboys didn't figure he would ever play in the NFL.

The Vikings have signed quarterback Drew Henson to their practice squad. The Vikings wanted to add a third quarterback after Tarvaris Jackson was lost for about month because of a knee injury.

Henson will step in and help take some of the practice reps away from Brad Johnson and Brooks Bollinger. Vikings coach Brad Childress has known Henson since he was a kid.

“My wife used to babysit Drew Henson in Salt Lake City,” Vikings coach Brad Childress said. “Dan Henson was the offensive coordinator when I worked there at the University of Utah. I said [to Drew Henson] last night, ‘How old would you have been then?’ I think he told me the fifth grade. I’ve kind of known him for a while.”

Henson, a former University of Michigan quarterback, spent the past two seasons with the Dallas Cowboys. He was released by Dallas in August.

Henson elected to play baseball over football in 2001, signing with the New York Yankees. He decided to return to football in 2004, getting an eight-year deal from the Dallas Cowboys that included $3.5 million in guaranteed money.

He played in seven games with Dallas that season, completing 10 of 18 passes for 78 yards. Henson did not see any action with the Cowboys in 2005.

Henson had a workout with the Miami Dolphins this week. Guard C.J. Brooks was released to make room for Henson on the practice squad.

Another in line of personnel from the past that Childress has put on the payroll. I wish I knew him, I may have had a shot at a reciever position. wink.gif

      Saw a group  like you described a couple weeks back below the Sartell dam while fishing.They didnt have head gear though.They were playing by the dam gates riding the flow from the open side.Then they hung out by the closed side and I learned that its only about knee high on a certain area  that in my mind thought it was much deeper.Looked like fun for sure

      I have a Minn Kota Ulterra and am not having any problems. In last two days I have seen two fisherman struggling out on the water trying to stow their units that failed to auto stow. There is an emergency procedure described in digital manual but it is not very helpful. I have looked for a video of this procedure on You Tube but couldn't find one. Has anyone had any luck finding such a video??

      Back to fun pictures and the reason I love coming to the Tower/Ely area!   There's just an amazing difference in the environment up here.  It's something I miss pretty much every day I'm not here.  And when you have as beautiful of a Saturday as we had yesterday, I just gotta say "Ahhh, this makes everything else worthwhile."   And when I go back through my best fishing memories, SO many have been made here, and yesterday I added another.  These girls in consecutive casts:

      On Thursday I caught many crappies and sunfish that had not spawned yet. None of the bigger ones seemed to have spawned at all. We also caught almost no males.

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.
