I really don't know why we went away from him so much last year (maybe there's a real reason: i.e. undisclosed injury), but I still think he's a value to this offense.
Teams played a soft zone against us, eliminating the big play, and we didn't have the run game to make them put 8 in the box.

Devery and Meachem were both victimized by this.

devery has turned it around before but i'm thinking kinda like danno, the running game was not a solid threat to bring the safetys up. and the jurys handed the death sentence on his return skills. its not in his blood to return.

All of these players did their part in securing a post-season campaign for the Saints. My favorite dark horse on the list is Adrian Arrington. I think he's phenomenal. He has fresh legs, he's quick, and he's hard to cover. I don't think any of these receivers should be let go and I think Drew Brees simply had an off year. I hope all these receivers come back and although Devery had a sub-par year, he's a good blocker.

I predict that Drew Brees will throw for 4,500 yards with 37 touchdowns and 15 interceptions this next season. Therefore, ALL the receivers will look better.

IMHO, if any receivers from this year's squad doesn't make it back next year it's Devery Henderson and Courtney Roby. Henderson was mostly ineffective last season, and the return game needs to be addressed. I think it's time that Adrian Arrington take the leap to be a full-time player on the active roster. I've been waiting for this guy since he was drafted. I see Colston, Meach, Moore, and Arrington being the main wide receivers and fresh legs coming up in the return game.
