Devery Henderson released by Washington Redskins

The Washington Redskins brought in wide receiver Devery Henderson this offseason, hoping he could provide some veteran depth in case of injuries. They quickly decided they didn't need him.

The team announced Wednesday that Henderson was released. The next logical question: Will Henderson wind up back in New Orleans?

The Saints have been looking for help at receiver following the season-ending injury to projected No. 3 wideout Joe Morgan. That's a role Henderson held with the Saints for many years, although the team was hoping to get younger at the position this season. (Henderson had just 22 catches for New Orleans last year.)

Fifth-round draft pick Kenny Stills is the favorite for the Saints' gig now, with veterans like Steve Breaston and Patrick Crayton recently added to the mix.

Henderson always has been a one-dimensional player, but he was very well liked within the Saints' organization as a smart and quiet team-first guy. It wouldn't be a shock if he returned to the Saints.
