Redskins Add Two New Wideouts

The Washington Redskins added some more depth today at the wide receiver position. Donte Stallworth and Devery Henderson are now trying out at Redskins camp.

32 year old Stallworth has played for six different teams over his ten year career. He played for the Redskins back in the 2011 season. That season Stallworth caught 22 passes for 309 yards and 2 touchdowns. Last year Stallworth played in one game for the New England Patriots, catching 1 pass for 63 yards and a touchdown. Stallworth’s best season came back in 2005 with the Saints when he caught 70 passes for 945 yards and 7 touchdowns.

This will be the second team in Henderson’s career that he will play for. The 31 year old has played in New Orleans since 2005. Henderson’s best season was in 2009 when he caught 51 passes for 804 yards and 2 touchdowns. Henderson has spent most of his career as a second or third option for the Saints. Marques Colston has been Drew Brees’ main option since he came to New Orleans.

Both of these receivers come from the SEC, which has not always produced the best crop of receivers. Stallworth was a first round selection out of Tennessee in 2002. Henderson was second round selection out of LSU. These receivers were teammates in 2005 for the Saints. The two combined for 92 catches and 1,288 yards and 10 touchdowns.

I am sure the Redskins would take that kind of production for this upcoming season. Neither player is guaranteed a spot on the roster, especially since they now have 12 receivers in their OTA’s. These two guys bring a deep threat for Robert Griffin to throw dow =n the field to. Pierre Garcon is a great receiver to throw to over the middle, and adding a couple of deep threats helps to open up the field over the middle. One if not both will impact the team in a positive way.
