3 Players Allocated to NFL Europe

The Cowboys officially allocated three players to NFL Europe on Monday, including QB Drew Henson.

Dallas will also send wide receiver Tom Crowder and cornerback Lenny Williams overseas.

Henson has been the subject of controversy ever since the Cowboys traded for the former Michigan quarterback more than two years ago.

He was inactive for all 16 games this season, serving as the third string quarterback behind starter Drew Bledsoe and back up Tony Romo. Overall, he's made just one start in two seasons - that coming against Chicago on Thanksgiving Day in 2004. However, he was pulled in the second half and has yet to see the field since.

Last winter, the Cowboys elected to keep him at Valley Ranch to work on his throwing motion, as opposed to sending him overseas to work on his skills.

Crowder was one of the early surprises of the offseason last year. Viewed as one of the fastest players on the team, the former Arkansas standout moved from safety to wide receiver.

He spent the entire 2005 season on the Cowboys' practice squad.

Williams was re-signed by the Cowboys on Monday after spending half the 2005 season on team's practice squad.

All three players will report to training camp for NFL Europe in mid-February.
