    Henson signs and other items
    Wednesday, September 27th, 2006 by Judd Zulgad

    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.

    You just know, somehow, it will end with Matt Millen signing Drew Henson to a huge, bonus-laden contract. ::) ::)

    Why not? It started with Jerry Jones signing Drew Henson to a huge, bonus-laden contract.

    Guys, he's a third-string QB. Enough said.

    Hey. At least he tried. He wasn't going to leave Michigan till Steinbrenner threw him money. And Jerry Jones didn't have to sign him to that contract.
    Now, Todd Marinovich. There's your poster boy.
