New Orleans Saints wide receiver Devery Henderson is a seasoned veteran and has been one of the more reliable wide receivers for the Saints for the past few seasons. However, it appears that Henderson is not off to a great start at training camp.
Henderson has reportedly dropped a few passes and has not been running routes correctly. Henderson might just be a little rusty and there really should be no cause for concern. Henderson has been in the league for seven seasons and I know he will bounce back. Furthermore, the point of training camp is to train and Henderson will have plenty of time to show his true form.
Henderson is expected to be the number two receiver next to Marques Colston and has been a deep threat for the Saints during his career. Once Henderson gets it together at training camp he should flourish this season as the number two receiver.
Since wide receiver Robert Meachem left the Saints for the San Diego Chargers it was expected that Henderson would assume the number two wide receiver slot. This season Henderson’s production should go up, but he did a great job as the number three receiver behind Meachem and Colston. Last season Henderson played all 16 games and recorded 503 receiving yards with two touchdowns on 32 receptions.
Henderson is the probably the Saints’ greatest deep threat and this season he will have more opportunities to catch the long ball. There is no reason to raise any red flags with Henderson’s poor start and I am sure that he will end camp on a strong note. Henderson will be ready to start this season and he will be a big part of one of the best receiving corps in the NFL.
