Cowboys to Obtain Aaron Glenn

The draft is over, but the Cowboys' front office continues to grind. The Houston Chronicle is reporting this evening that Dallas has reached a contract agreement with Houston Texans cornerback Aaron Glenn. The Texans will grant Glenn his release in the next few days, at which point he will join the Cowboys.

Glenn will most likely fill the nickel back spot and give Dallas depth behind starters Anthony Henry and Terrence Mathis. The Cowboys took three cornerbacks in the late rounds of the '04 draft but Bruce Thornton is coming off an ACL reconstruction and Jacques Reeves and Nate Jones both struggled adapting to the NFL game.

The acquistion of Glenn probably spells the end of Pete Hunter's time as a Cowboy. The three year veteran was upset by the Henry signing and refused a team request to move to free safety.

Update: The Cowboys had competition for Glenn from three other teams, including the New England Patriots.
