Devery Henderson is a 31-year-old wideout who wasn't re-signed by the New Orleans Saints this offseason. The Washington Redskins picked up the veteran deep threat, but he was unable to make Mike Shanahan's final roster.
In all likelihood, Henderson isn't nearly as fast as he once was. However, his specific NFL experience makes him, somewhat quietly, a nice fit for the Green Bay Packers.
Henderson never pieced together a 1,000-yard season as a professional. He caught 51 passes in 2009, a career high.
But Henderson played with Drew Brees, an elite quarterback, in a vertical-passing offense over the final six years of his eight-year stay with the Saints.
The former LSU star's career yards-per-reception average is a robust 17.9, and the Packers certainly love pushing the ball downfield.
This elder wideout would be a cheap, stand-in option who could use his downfield specialty to threaten opposing secondaries.
