HOUSTON - The Houston Texans have traded QB Drew Henson to the Dallas Cowboys for a third-round draft choice in 2005. The Texans acquired Henson in the sixth round of last year's draft with the intention of trading him.
"This was a very complicated deal and I want to give credit to everyone involved for getting it done," Texans general manager Charley Casserly said. "We went through an extensive process to get where we are today.
Henson last played football four years ago at Michigan, completing 57 percent of his passes (214 of 374) for 2,946 yards, with 24 touchdowns and only seven interceptions. With one-year of eligibility remaining at Michigan, Henson signed a six-year deal with the New York Yankees. He spent three full-seasons playing baseball in the New York Yankees' organization, before leaving to pursue an NFL career.
