The New Orleans Saints Need To Let Go Of Devery Henderson
The New Orleans Saints have had one of the most dynamic offenses in the NFL for the past few seasons. Quarterback Drew Brees leads a deadly passing game and has many weapons to throw it to down field However, like any team there is always a weak link, and for the Saints this past season that weak link was wide receiver Devery Henderson.
Henderson had a horrific season as he only had 22 receptions for a career low 316 yards and one touchdown in 15 games. Henderson’s production was supposed to increase with the departure of Robert Meachem but his production actually decreased and he had arguably the worst season of his career.
Henderson is set to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason and it is very unlikely that the Saints will re-sign him. It is time for Henderson and the Saints to part ways after nine seasons together. A change of scenery might do the Louisiana native some good and he should go to a team that will give him a chance to rejuvenate his career.
Despite his terrible season Henderson is still a very valuable receiver and could go to a team and really help out their offense. Henderson is still a deep threat option with great hands but it is evident that his time in New Orleans is up.
The Saints are probably the deepest at wide receiver and with the emergence of Joe Morgan it makes letting go of Henderson a lot easier. Morgan will likely take Henderson’s spot in the Saints’ offense as the situational deep threat speedster. Henderson had some good years with the Saints but it is time for him to begin the next chapter of his career.
