The Cowboys have officially signed former Texans cornerback Aaron Glenn.
A three time Pro-Bowler, Glenn was reportedly unhappy with that the Texans traded for former Raiders cornerback Philip Buchanon last week in an effort to get younger on defense.
In fact, Glenn was so upset, he asked the Texans organization for a trade. While a trade was never worked out, Houston helped facilitate Glenn signing with the Cowboys by giving him his release on Tuesday.
24 hours later, the former Texas A&M Aggie has inked a two-year deal with the Cowboys.
Dallas has already been aggressive this offseason when it comes to the secondary, signing free agent cornerback Anthony Henry. However, Glenn could provide depth to a defensive backfield that is lacking quality players on the second team and beyond.
Coming off a disappointing 2003 season that saw Glenn miss five games due to injury, the former Texas A&M star rebounded in 2004, recording 63 tackles and intercepting five passes while also serving as a mentor for rookie Dunta Robinson.
Glenn could serve in a similar capacity in Dallas with younger corners Henry and Terence Newman.
Drafted out of Texas A&M by the New York Jets, Glenn has enjoyed 12 years of success in the National Football League. In nine years with the Jets, and three with the Texans, Glenn has 475 career tackles to go along with 35 interceptions.
Five of those interceptions were returned for touchdowns.
