RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Erin Henderson.
Entering his eighth professional season and second with the Jets, Henderson has been little more than a backup linebacker to this point in his career. He played in just over a fifth of the teamís defensive snaps a year ago, but with the departure of former starting linebacker Demario Davis this past offseason, Henderson could see a slightly larger role in 2016.
Following two drunk driving arrests in a span of three months, the Vikings cut Henderson in the 2014 offseason. He'll look to bounce back in 2015 as a reserve linebacker with the Jets after a year away from the NFL.
Henderson is expected to start at middle linebacker. He is a productive tackler when he is able to stay on the field. He logged a career-high 80 tackles and 3.0 sacks in 2012 across 14 games.
Henderson will start at the weak-side linebacker spot after taking over the job in 2011. He puts up decent tackle totals, but doesn't rush the quarterback which limits his value in IDP formats.
Henderson is the leading candidate to start at weakside linebacker with the Vikings apparently not likley to re-sign Ben Leber.
Henderson will backup Chad Greenway on the depth chart, and will contribute on special teams. In ten games last season, Henderson had 15 tackles.
Henderson will attempt to make Minnesota's 53-man roster as a backup linebacker, and his chances certainly won't be hurt by the fact that he is the younger brother of the Vikings' top linebacker E.J. Henderson.
