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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
