After buying in bulk on defensive tackles during the draft, the Jaguars have released defensive tackle John Henderson.

Niners will pick him up.
Really? As a backup NT? Or as an out-of-position 3-4 DE? Seems a waste of Henderson, who has excelled in a 4-3 scheme in the past.
I understand that Henderson was perhaps overpaid for his contribution level, but, like Flozell Adams who was cut for similar reasons, it seems like he's still a pretty good player who could really upgrade some of the weaker DLs in the league, no? (I'm thinking of places like St. Louis and perhaps Atlanta)
Atlanta would seem like a strong possibility. There's some evidence that the Jacksonville defensive players really liked Mike Smith, as a number of them have moved to Atlanta after being released at least in part due to "attitude issues".
I wonder how well he got along with Gregg Williams when the two were in Jax, and whether he wants to play for Williams again...
Sports talk radio and sports message boards are the killing fields of intellectual discourse.
I was just thinking that...
My thoughts exactly, woudl be great for the Saints to put him in situationally and knock Ellis around in practice.
Obligatory Youtube about John Henderson's pregame ritual, being slapped. I love his post-slap ranting - "We gon' make blood come out they mouth!"
Love the commentary at the end of the video:
Eisen: Marshall, have you ever seen a pregame ritual where one man asks another man to slap him hard across the face?
Faulk: I have not, Rich.
That is awesome. I have always thought this guy was fantastic but seeing that makes me really root for the guy. I would love the Bears to sign this guy.
It's like a real life Terry Tate. The pain-train's coming, woo-woo
Because saying good-bye to their last giant DT was so successful...
Seen him play. He does nothing special.
The Panthers can always use a decent DT.
Really, really dislike this call. Rookie D-linemen always seem to struggle in their first year. Henderson's best days are behind him, but I think this is one of those positions where a solid veteran can be really helpful while the new guys get acclimated.
The Vikings need offensive line help, while the Bears, Lions, and Packers have significant defensive concerns.
