Cornerback. (2005–08). Anthony Henry. 15. player. 123.

Cornerback Anthony Henry started his NFL career as a fourth-round selection out of South Florida in 2001. He would spend the first four years of his career playing for the Cleveland Browns. And Henry would start his career with a bang, racking up 54 tackles, seven passes defended, 10 interceptions and a defensive touchdown during his rookie season.

Henry would tie the league-lead in interceptions in 2001, despite the fact he started in just two games for the Browns. The year before hitting free agency, the 6-foot-1, 207-pound cornerback would post an impressive 76 tackles, eight pass defends and four interceptions.

Henry would sign with the Cowboys as a free agent in 2005, inking a five-year, $25 million deal. And in his first season in Dallas, Henry would rack up 48 tackles, 11 passes defended, three interceptions and one defensive touchdown.

During his four-year career in Dallas, Henry’s best season would come in 2007 when he would record six interceptions helping the Wade Phillips’-led Cowboys to a 13-3 record. Unfortunately, Dallas would be defeated by the eventual Super Bowl Champion New York Giants in the Divisional Round of the NFC playoffs.
