Henderson spent the majority of his career as a second or third in line wide receiver on depth chart playing behind guys like Marques Colston, Lance Moore, and Joe Horn. However, he took advantage of his limited snaps and is currently ranked sixth on the New Orleans Saints all-time receiving yards list.
Henderson hauled in 245 receptions, 4,377 yards, 174 first downs, and 20 touchdowns in his NFL career while averaging 17.9 yards per reception. Henderson also ran the ball a few times accumulating 119 yards, eight first downs, and a touchdown.
Devery Henderson was a playoff star for the Saints as well.
In eight career playoff games, Henderson hauled in 31 receptions for 464 yards and four touchdowns. Henderson averaged fifteen yards per reception and had only eleven receptions that were not the first down.
Henderson’s lengthy tenure and successful play rank him as the second-best player to wear the number 19 jersey for the New Orleans Saints.
