Aaron Wilson, NFL reporter, reports that the Dallas Cowboys will host Ra’Shaun Henry, a former Carolina Panthers wide receiver, for a workout Wednesday. This week, the former Virginia star also trained with the San Francisco 49ers.
After two seasons spent with the Cavaliers, Henry was undrafted. After the draft, he signed with the Panthers but did not make it to the regular season. Carolina removed him from their practice squad in September 5.
Ra’Shaun Henry graduated from St. Francis and transferred to Virginia. He had 41 receptions, totaling 809 yards and seven touchdowns in 21 games.
If he joins the Cowboys, the 6-foot-3, 190-pound wideout might find a place back home in his home state. Henry hails from Killeen. Dallas moved to waiver a wide receiver Tuesday. A spot on the practice team could soon be available.
On Tuesday , the Dallas Cowboys released rookie receiver Dennis Houston. This move leaves a spot open on the 53-man roster for fifth-year receiver Michael Gallup who is returning from a knee injury.
Houston attended Western Illinois college and was undrafted in the offseason. He signed with the Cowboys in May. Houston played 60 offensive snaps in the opening two weeks, and he caught two passes for 16 yard.
Dallas is yet to fill the vacant roster spot. After Dalton Schultz’s injury, backup quarterback Will Grier was promoted along with center Alex Lindstrom. Tight end Sean McKeon is also considered for the vacant spot.
Gallup is expected to return to action for the Cowboys’ Week 3 matchup against New York Giants. Gallup injured his ACL in January last season. He has been trying to get back to the No. 1 position and has made progress. Cowboys’ offense, 2nd receiver.
