Cowboys’ CB Anthony Henry Willing to Move to Safety

Dallas cornerback Anthony Henry says he is willing to move to free safety if that’s what the team needs.

The agent for Cowboys cornerback Anthony Henry said he believes his client still has several good seasons left at the position, but would not object to a potential move to free safety.

Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones has said moving Henry from corner to safety is a possibility. Henry played some safety as a collegian at South Florida. A move there may give the Cowboys better coverage at the position that could allow strong safety Roy Williams to play closer to the line of scrimmage.

“We do believe Anthony has several years left as one of the league’s best cornerbacks,” said Henry’s agent, Jerrold Colton. “But if the Cowboys feel it would be best to move Anthony to safety, he would do it.”

While I applaud Henry’s unselfishness, this seems odd to me. Aren’t competent corners harder to come by that free safeties? The Cowboys’ problems replacing Darren Woodson notwithstanding? And isn’t he making too much to play safety?
