According to several reliable sources, the Dallas Cowboys have signed former Cleveland cornerback Anthony Henry.
Henry's agent became upset during the regular season that the Browns didn't call him to negotiate a new contract.
And now apparently, his client has decided to sign with the Dallas Cowboys. The deal is said to be a five-year, $25 million deal that included an $11 million bonus.
An announcement from the Cowboys is expected as soon as Thursday.
Dallas has been in deseparate need of a cornerback since the departure of Mario Edwards last offseason. Edwards, who had often been critisized for giving up the big play, was more of an asset to the team than initially realized.
The Cowboys defense was the top ranked in the league in 2003, but that number slipped into the middle of the pack last season. Part of the reason was due to several holes in the secondary.
The Cowboys made it be known that they wanted a veteran corner to start opposite of Terence Newman- and Henry appears to be that player.
In four years with with the Browns, Henry intercepted 17 passes. He recorded four interceptions last season, to go along with 76 tackles.
