The Redskins added three players on Thursday as they wrapped up their offseason programs.

As expected, they signed wide receiver Donte Stallworth, who was with the Redskins in 2011. They also added veteran wide receiver Devery Henderson, a former teammate of Stallworth’s with the Saints, and kicker John Potter.

To make room for two of the new players, the Redskins waived-injured defensive tackle Doug Worthington (biceps) and tight end Deangelo Peterson (knee).

The team has to announce one more roster move to get to the offseason limit of 90 players.

Henderson, 31, has been with the Saints since they made him a second round draft pick in 2004. He led the league in yards per catch in 2006 (23.3) and 2008 (24.8). In 2012, Henderson appeared in 15 games with 10 starts and caught 22 passes for 316 yards (14.4 average) and one touchdown.

Stallworth, 32, has played with the Saints (he was their first-round draft pick in 2002), Eagles, Patriots, Browns and Ravens in addition to the Redskins. Last year he caught just one pass playing in New England last year. The good news for him was that it was good for 63 yards and a touchdown. The bad news was that he sustained an ankle injury on the play and he was out for the rest of the season.

Potter, 23, was a seventh-round pick of the Bills in 2012. He was their kickoff specialist for the first six games of the season and he had 13 touchbacks on 24 kicks.
