Just an idea about Henderson

I had an idea today about Devery Henderson and was wondering what some of yall at the b&g had to say. What if........ the Saints traded Michael Bennett, and converted Henderson into the backup running back? It's my understanding that he was a runner who was converted to reciever at LSU anyway. His hands seem to be suspect from what I read, however, when he gets the ball in his hands he is dynamite. It would be a shame to let him get cut and picked up elsewhere, cause he's so talented. I remember him being a very fast, explosive runner when he was running the ball at LSU. If their willing to try McPhearson elsewhere on the field, why not Devery? When they trade Bennett they will need another runner anyway, and Henderson is a blazer. More thoughts please, thanks. (go saints!)

Devery is a little too light in the rear to be a RB. Unfortunately, his "stone hands" are going to get him cut at the WR position. Can you say Eddie Kennison? All speed....No hands.

RE: Just an idea about Henderson

lets say duce's knee does not hold up. what back field would you want?
Bush, Bennett, Stecker
Bush, Stecker, Henderson

Sorry I would not trade Bennett. Our LB are still better than last year. Hollis is an upgrade to sully. bite the bullet this year on D.
now if a ROT is there i would pause but still would not pull the trigger. give up a safty or WR first.
duce still needs to prove he can run on that knee. I do not want to see bush carring the ball 25 - 30 times a game. god help us if we have to rest our hopes on the pass game with the OL such a big ?

RE: Just an idea about Henderson

That's an interesting idea nedly. I mean if he isn't going to work out as a receiver, why not? Might as well make some use of his talents. He did drop a lot of balls at LSU when he was there and everyone knew he was raw as a receiver in college and when he was drafted. Or, we could trade him to another team that was high on him during that draft year. I'm pretty sure we'd be able to get a decent draft pick out of him if he doesn't pan out here.

I think he'll stay at the 3 spot until later in the season when Hass takes over. We still need depth at WR becuase of Horn and Stallworth's injury problems.

I think we will end up with Horn, Stallworth, Henderson, Haas, and Lewis on the roster...maybe even C. Horn or Lyman...Lewis will pick up return duties and wont see much play at WR at all....I think Lewis also stands a chance of getting cut if one of these recievers stands out as a returner in camp and Lewis is still riding that bike...I would hate to see him go but his 15 minutes may be over

he did have over 1100 yds recieving last year...hard to do that with stone hands...he is not great, but that is an unfair assessment.

henderson should be tried as a return man and 3rd down back...if it doesnt work out cut him

henderson is goner

Joe Horn WR 34 6-1 213 11 Itawamba (MS) JC - big $$$ and age, but team leader
Donte' Stallworth WR 25 6-0 196 5 Tennessee - Next Year contract and alot of what if's
Jamal Jones WR 25 6-0 214 2 North Carolina A&T - camp surprise
Chris Horn WR 29 5-11 195 4 Rocky Mountain - payton brought him in, solid camp
Mike Hass WR 23 6-0 208 R Oregon State - hands, fan favorite and a good camp
Marques Colston TE 23 6-4 223 R Hofstra - still have trouble with the TE bit solid camp
Chase Lyman WR 23 6-4 210 1 California - glass but solid camp
Lance Moore WR 22 5-11 184 1 Toledo - NFL europe hold over, with a futures 2 yr deal
Devery Henderson WR 24 5-11 200 3 LSU - killing himself
for dual threat
Bethel Johnson WR 27 5-11 200 4 Texas A&M - cheaper and showing hands
Michael Lewis WR 34 5-8 173 6 None - big $$ and age, fan favorite

This is the group I can see packaging for a trade besides at Safties. Tough once you get past the top 2. this group will be the last and toughest group for cuts. hard to see many making it pass waivers to put on the pratice sqaud. That is how it works ?

What year did Kennison come in the league? 1996. How many big years has he had? 2. How many years has he led the league in dropped passes? The guy is one of the league leaders annually in the dropped passes category. Simply google Eddie Kennison passes dropped statistics & you will see countless hits. Hence, calling the guy "Stone Hands" would seem to me to be a fair assessment. :P As an LSU alumni, I hate to point out those kind of things. Hell....Xavier Carter was of the same mold. World class sprinter...no hands. Face it....both Kennison & Henderson couldn't catch a cold if they were butt naked, hiking in Alaska. They are both blazingly fast, though.

but he still was a VERY productive WR last season...and in the NFL it is what have you done for me lately, so no one cares what his early career was like.
