Carlos Henderson: Waived by Washington

Henderson was waived by the Redskins on Tuesday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: Henderson signed with the Redskins just over a week ago and is now back on the market. The third-round pick from 2017 has been a disappointment in his first-two seasons, failing to see the field in a regular season game. He'll look to catch on with another club in 2019.

Henderson signed a reserve/future contract with the Redskins on Monday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: Henderson is a developmental project, and has not made his NFL debut since being drafted by the Broncos in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft. The second-year wideout will spend the offseason working to climb Washington's depth chart.

Carlos Henderson: Let go by Denver

Henderson was released from the Broncos' practice squad on Thursday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Analysis: Henderson signed with the Broncos' practice squad after being waived by the team before the start of the regular season. Since he spent his entire rookie season in 2017 on injured reserve, Henderson is yet to play a snap in the regular season despite being a third-round pick. Henderson's struggles in his personal life are what likely led to his release, and with that, it may be difficult for the wideout to find another opportunity in the NFL at this time.

Carlos Henderson: Signed to Denver practice squad

Henderson (suspension) is joining the Denver practice squad, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Analysis: Henderson's status as a 2017 third-round pick wasn't enough to keep him on the 53-man roster, but the Broncos do want to take another look before completely cutting ties. The 23-year-old spent his entire rookie season on IR with a torn thumb ligament, then had an interesting offseason that included an arrest, a hamstring injury and a lengthy absence from training camp for personal reasons. The arrest led to a one-game suspension from the NFL.

Carlos Henderson: Waived by Broncos

The Broncos waived Henderson (suspension) on Saturday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Analysis: A third-round pick of the Broncos in 2017, Henderson spent his entire rookie season on IR due to a torn thumb ligament. After the campaign, he was arrested Jan. 14 for possession of a controlled substance, which incurred a one-game suspension from the NFL. Hurting his cause further was failing to report to Denver until Aug. 21. The wideout may have to prove that his personal life is in order before he receives another opportunity in the league.

Carlos Henderson: Rejoins team

Henderson (suspension) reported to the Broncos on Tuesday, Troy Renck of ABC 7 Denver reports.

Analysis: The 2017 third-round pick is in a precarious spot after missing his entire rookie season with a torn thumb ligament. A January arrest for possession of a controlled substance led to a one-game suspension, and he missed all of training camp while stepping away from the team to deal with unspecified personal/family issues. In between, Henderson was limited by a hamstring injury during the offseason program, prompting coach Vance Joseph to say that the second-year wideout needed to compete for a roster spot. Henderson has probably made a full recovery from the hamstring injury by now, but he's still on the reserve/exempt list and may not have a place with the Broncos anymore. He said Tuesday that he's working on gaining clearance to practice with the team.

Carlos Henderson: Suspended for Week 1

Henderson (personal, hamstring) will be suspended for Week 1 for a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

Analysis: Henderson was bothered by a hamstring injury during the offseason, then placed on the reserve/exempt list for the start of training camp due to an unspecified personal issue. He's yet to rejoin the Broncos, while rookie wideouts Courtland Sutton (knee) and DaeSean Hamilton both seem to be making a good impression at camp. Despite getting drafted in the third round last year, Henderson likely is in danger of being released before Week 1. It doesn't help that he missed his entire rookie season with a thumb injury.
