Maryland had a very veteran-laden secondary in 2015.
Hendy ended up having the best season of his career as he recorded 76 tackles (48 solo). His 76 tackles were the fourth-most on the team and he also defended four passes.
Despite a very successful senior campaign, Hendy found himself as an undrafted free agent this past spring. The Miami Dolphins saw something that they liked because they inked a deal with the former Terp.
In Friday’s game against the New York Giants, Hendy was very opportunistic as he attempted to showcase his skills. Late in the first half, former Syracuse signal caller Ryan Nassib lofted a deep pass down the sideline that was tipped by fellow rookie Lafayette Pitts. The ball popped into the air and Hendy leaped to make the interception for the Dolphins.
Hendy also registered two tackles (one solo) during the game. He was certainly gotten the attention of Miami’s coaching staff and has even earned praise from head coach Adam Gase.
The Dolphins do have significant depth at the position, but if Hendy keeps making plays in the preseason, it’ll be hard to keep him off the roster.
