Carlos Henderson’s Broncos career got off to a bad start and never recovered. First, he missed his entire rookie season with a hand injury. Then he was arrested, which ultimately resulted in a one game suspension for the young receiver. Then Denver drafted two more receivers in this year’s draft.
On top of it all, Henderson was away from the Broncos most of this offseason due to a personal issue. All of it resulted in the Broncos cutting Henderson, the 82nd pick of the 2017 draft, before he ever played a snap with the team. But Denver isn’t giving up on him yet, signing Henderson to their practice squad. Henderson reportedly met with John Elway just before cut-down day to plead his case, and after that the team agreed to give him another chance according to Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic.
