Another XFL player making the jump to the NFL: DB Dravon Askew-Henry has agreed to a 2-year deal with the #Giants, source said. Expect the cousin of @Revis24, who played for the New York Guardians, to compete for the nickel role.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 24, 2020
Askew-Henry was drafted as part of the Phase 4 XFL draft in the 4th round by the Guardians. He finished the season with 11 tackles and 6 pass defenses. He infamously threw a penalty flag back at a referee after holding call during a game against the LA Wildcats.
He played his college ball at West Virginia where he had 170 tackles, 4 interceptions and 12 pass defenses in 38 games. He later signed as an undrafted free agent with the Pittsburgh Steelers but was cut at the end of pre-season in 2019.
Askew-Henry is the cousin of former New York Jets star DB Darrelle Revis.
