IRVING, Texas — The NFL is continuing last year’s decision to have retired players announce second-round selections for their former teams, and Chad Hennings will do the honors for the Dallas Cowboys on Friday in New York City.
Hennings played his entire nine-year career with the Cowboys and was a rookie on their 1992 Super Bowl team. Dallas originally drafted him in the 11th round of the 1988 draft, and he joined them four years later after fulfilling his service commitment with the Air Force.
A member of all three championship teams in the 1990s, he played in 119 games and had 27.5 sacks at defensive tackle.
Ring of Honor inductee Charles Haley announced last year’s second-round pick, linebacker Bruce Carter.
