Raiders Sign John Henderson

According to Adam Schefter, the Raiders have signed former Jaguars defensive tackle John Henderson.

Henderson is likely to be in the rotation, but don’t be surprised if he plays behind Desmond Bryant.

Good veteran defensive tackles are very underrated commodities. Keeping those big guys fresh is probably the most important thing for a football team.

Henderson is likely to play the 1-technique spot.

If you are confused as to what that means here is a good breakdown of the defensive line positions.

zero technique – would mean a nose tackle aligned nose-to-nose with a center.
1 technique – lined up in the middle of the A gap.
2 technique – nose-to-nose with the offensive guard.
3 technique – lined up in the middle of the B gap or outside shade of the guard. He is responsible for maintaining outside leverage and not letting himself get hook or reached blocked by the offense.
4 technique – lined up nose-to-nose with the offensive tackle.
5 technique – the defensive lineman had his nose on the outside shoulder of the offensive tackle.
6 technique – was nose-to-nose with the offensive tight end.
7 technique – nose on the inside shoulder of the offensive tight end.
8 technique – aligned on air outside the outside shoulder of the offensive tight end.
9 technique – nose on the outside shoulder of the offensive tight end.

  • The "we need the cash" thing is also bogus because Peyton's money was base salary. Paid out in installments.
