Devery Henderson Is Deaf To His Doubters

 New Orleans Saints wide receiver Devery Henderson (along with DE Will Smith) is the longest tenured player on the team. During his 8 year career, there have been tons of doubters and harsh critics of Devery’s game. Many suggested that he be cut, or traded, or not resigned. Many are now eating some crow. Devery is deaf to his doubters. He quietly does his job, and so far in this 2011 season, does it extremely well.

His back to back 100+ yard games to start this season has Henderson ranked in the top 10 of league in receiving yards. The absence of Marques Colston due to a collabone injury did not slow down the Saints offense in Sunday’s win over the Bears. A big reason why, Devery Henderson.

John DeShazier of the Times Picayune and nola.com has more on how Henderson tunes out the doubters, and continues to be a trusted asset of the Saints coaching staff. Click here for the story.
