Henderson is 31 and has showed signs of wearing down. No other team made a big pitch for Henderson. Still, Williamson thinks the one-year deal is worth Oakland’s while.
Williamson: "Oakland’s run defense was atrocious last year. The Raiders are makings strides to get better there. This is another step in the right direction. Henderson is a big, wide body that will clog up the interior. I don’t think you will see him on passing downs, but he will help against the run for 25-35 plays a game. He is not a difference maker at this point. But he could be an above-average player for Oakland. I like this signing."
