Saints | D. Henderson - could be all - or nothing

Sun, 23 Jul 2006 19:23:56 -0700

Mike Triplett, writing for the Sporting News, reports New Orleans Saints WR Devery Henderson could be attempting to lock down the team's No. 3 wide receiver job in training camp, or he could be on the outside looking in. The Saints are overcrowded at the wide receiver position, especially after they acquired WR Bethel Johnson in a trade with the New England Patriots. Henderson and Johnson are downfield speed receivers, so there might not be a need for both of them on the roster. Henderson will have to start over with a new quarterback and a new offense this year after having an up and down 2005.

Here, you learn the principles of the routes and it makes it easier on you. What I have been able to gather with the Saints is that you learn more and that they are more patient with you."

Patriots | B. Johnson to battle for roster spot

Mon, 22 May 2006 05:56:14 -0700

Mike Reiss, of the Boston Globe, reports New England Patriots WR Bethel Johnson will find himself in a battle for a roster spot in training camp. The Patriots are seeking a No. 2 receiver following the free agent departure of WR David Givens, and the speedy Johnson would like to be considered for the role. But with just 34 catches (including playoffs) over the last three years, he hasn't emerged as he'd hoped. He was inactive for both of the Patriots' playoff games last season. Johnson said an injury suffered early last season also stopped him from having ''a chance to get going, to get off the ground like I wanted to. All I can do is pray it doesn't happen again. Injuries can set you back big." Johnson has been participating in the Patriots' offseason program and feels healthy. He also doesn't feel forgotten by the team. If Johnson is to reverse his career course, it would be perfect timing for the Patriots. The team has WR Deion Branch atop the depth chart, with WR Reche Caldwell (fifth year), rookie WR Chad Jackson, and veteran WR Troy Brown among those fighting for playing time.
