Is Washington Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett doing a favor for a couple of his New Orleans Saints draft picks from a decade ago?

On Wednesday the Redskins announced the signings of veteran wide receivers Donte' Stallworth and Devery Henderson.

Stallworth was a first-round selection by the Saints in the 2002 NFL Draft. Henderson was plucked in the second round two years later. Both players attracted scant interest on the open market as free agents.

Although Stallworth has experience in the offense of Mike and Kyle Shanahan from 11 games with the Redskins in the 2011 season, he went unsigned last season until the New England Patriots picked him up as a December flier.

Once a deep-threat specialist with questionable hands in New Orleans, Henderson's role with the Saints was gradually scaled back over the past few seasons. The Redskins already have a younger, faster version of Henderson in Aldrick Robinson.
