Super Drew Henson

Just heard on the radio that due to Drew Stanton’s injury, the Detroit Lions signed former M QB Drew Henson to a contract. Last I heard Henson was cut by the Vikings and I figured that would end his playing days.

Update: Per the Detroit Free Press:

The Lions closed the locker room to the media Friday, and Henson was unavailable for comment. He is not expected to seriously contend for a roster spot, just to help the Lions get through their final two exhibitions.

Agree with the Freep take. But if he’s taking this position he thinks he can still play (it’s not about the small paycheck). So, perhaps Loeffler can work some magic with the Brighton prodigy.

  1. FINALLY MY CLAIM TO GLORY…I (BACK IN THE DAY)INTERCEPTED, STRUCK OUT AND HIT A TRIPLE OFF OF MR.HENSON IN HIGH SCHOOL. I ALWAYS WONDERED HOW GOOD HE COULD HAVE BEEN IF HE CONCENTENTRATED JUST ON FOOTBALL, HE WAS AN AMASING ATHLETE THEN. HOPEFULLY BEING REUNITED WITH HIS QB COACH CAN RESURECT HIS TALENT. BUT I WOULD MUCH RATHER HAVE STANTON IN THE LONG RUN. UNTIL THEN I WILL ENJOY LIVING IN THE GLORY DAYS OF MY YOUTH
