Redskins dump veteran WR Devery Henderson

Redskins released WR Devery Henderson.

Henderson, who signed a non-guaranteed one-year, $840K contract in June, was lagging behind Leonard Hankerson and Aldrick Robinson. Perhaps he'll get another shot with the Saints, who are desperate for a burner to run vertical clear-out routes after losing Joe Morgan. Henderson averaged 29.3 catches for 427.6 yards and scored four touchdowns in that role for New Orleans over the previous three seasons.

Coach Mike Shanahan said WR Devery Henderson came into training camp out of shape.

Henderson knew he'd be on the bubble, so it's really surprising he would show up huffing and puffing. Shanahan said he felt like he owed it to the veteran to tell him now that he had no chance to make the team. The Saints and other teams should tread lightly if they're going to kick the tires on Henderson.

It's a great sign that we can release a WR who recently helped the Saints.

Mixed metaphor. And isn't kicking the tires supposed to convey the idea of being cautious? Oh well.
