Former New Orleans Saints wide receiver Devery Henderson will appear at the Saints Hall of Fame Museum Sunday from 1:25-2:40 p.m. to sign autographs, prior to the Saints game against the Carolina Panthers.
A native of Opelousas, Henderson starred at Opelousas High School before becoming an outstanding player at LSU, where he was part of a national championship team in 2003.
Henderson was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the second round of the 2004 draft and played eight seasons for the Saints (2005-2012).
He caught 245 passes for 4,377 yards and 20 touchdowns. On Oct. 8, 2012, Henderson caught a touchdown pass from Drew Brees, who broke Johnny Unitas' record of 47 straight games with a touchdown pass on the completion in a 31-24 victory over San Diego. Henderson averaged 17.96 yards per catch, which was the highest average among all active NFL receivers with at least 200 catches as of 2012.
The Saints Hall of Fame Museum is located at Gate B on the Plaza level of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The museum is open three hours prior to each home game and for 45 minutes following each home game. Admission on game day is free of charge to all holding tickets to the game.
The museum is open by appointment on weekdays between 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at a cost of $7 per adult, $5 for seniors, children under 12 and military. Those under the age of three are admitted free.
