Devery Henderson

This is a question for the people that have been at practices and stuff. ... and let me preface this by saying that I've always been a fan of Devery, all the way back to his days at LSU,,, but,,, does he look a little heavy this year? While I was watching the game the other night it just looked like he's gained a little weight and lost a little speed. Maybe just my imagination.

He's 30 and apparently the longest tenured player on the team (I can't believe it's been that long.) I didn't notice him looking heavier so far.

What impressed me last night was AGAIN Devery delivered on his route, was in the right place at the right time, and he scored. I believe he is one of the most under appreciated player on the team. He constantly shows up at the open receiver with extra coverage on the main starters.

Sounds like he got off to a slow start at camp, and started to pick up the pace lately.


Short answer - haven't noticed

Re: Devery Henderson

Thanks. I haven't seen them in person yet so I don't know. It was just something everyone I was watching the game with commented on. It might have just been that he's wearing a little extra armor to protect his ribs. I'll see for myself at the redskins game.

He could have beefed up too. Slimmer WR's start building muscle in their mid to upper NFL years.

Devery's always been muscular. He was a running back at LSU before being converted to a wide receiver as a junior.

Having three small children at home can probably do that to you.

Re: Devery Henderson

Maybe he thought he needed a little more muscle mass to help with going up against bigger corners/safeties...

That's Graham's and Colstons's job. Devery has always been our spread-the-field-with-your-speed receiver.
