CB Anthony Henry's future with the Dallas Cowboys looks secure, but his position at corner does not. This is another offseason that has produced rumors of his move, or eventual move, to free safety.
But I gotta tell you: when I saw him make that goaline hit in the Chargers' backfield the other night, I was excited. That is what a safety does. I hit rewind on my TiVo just to see if Henry was lined up at any safety spot. Not so, but it did look like he kind of stunted with the safety on that play. Interesting play, Wade/Stewart.
With the depth at corner, it would make sense for Henry to make a switch to FS. This year, he'll play more of a safety position on dime and nickel packages to shadow the opponent's TEs, which is what I think he was doing on the goal-line--he saw the TE stay in to block and decided to make a great play. The coaching staff seems to be grooming him for a position switch.
But really, I would miss his aggressiveness on the corner. And I think the Cowboys would too. I just don't see him making the switch if Roy steps up his game. Then, what will happen to Henry next year if the safety position is set and one of these other corners are starting?
