Lions signed WR Corey Washington and LB Khaseem Greene to their practice squad.
Both are "name" players. Washington made noise in the preseason with the Giants last year, but failed to do it again in 2015 before being part of final cuts. He's 6'4/214. Greene is a former third-round pick of the Bears. Tue, Nov 17, 2015 08:16:00 PM

Free agent WR Corey Washington is working out for the Jets on Tuesday.

It's an indication the Jets expect Eric Decker (PCL) to miss some time. Washington was released by the Giants with an injury settlement earlier this month.

Giants will release WR Corey Washington with an injury settlement.

Washington had a disappointing August after shining in his rookie preseason, but the Giants are still surprisingly comfortable letting a promising prospect go. Washington is big, fast, and young. Washington has practice squad eligibility and should find a home once the NFL processes the transaction.

Giants waived/injured WR Corey Washington.

Initial reports had Washington as merely waived. He missed the preseason finale with a shoulder injury. He'll revert to injured reserve if he clears waivers. Washington stuck with the Giants in 2014 after turning in a mammoth preseason, but couldn't match the feat this summer, catching just three passes for 25 yards in three games. Washington still has some upside, but there's no real reason to keep him around in Dynasty leagues.

Giants GM Jerry Reese singled out second-year WR Corey Washington as a player to watch during training camp.

Washington caught just five passes last regular season, but showed his upside in the preseason by scoring four times in five games. Still just 23 years old, the developmental project is competing to be the top backup to outside receivers Odell Beckham and Rueben Randle.

Giants wide receivers coach Sean Ryan said WR Corey Washington "had an excellent spring."

Washington was the star of the Giants' offseason program last year, but his limitations on special teams limited his role in the regular season. With the top three spots in the wide receiver corps set, Washington will have to improve on special teams to even be active on game days.

Giants WR Corey Washington must perform more consistently on special teams to earn a larger role on offense.

If you're not a top-three receiver on your respective team, you need to be able to cover kicks and punts. Washington couldn't do that as a rookie and was inactive for much of the year after a dominant preseason. With the Giants appearing to be loaded at receiver, Washington will have to have another strong summer to make the 53-man roster. He's an imposing 6'4/214.

Giants WR Corey Washington was a healthy scratch in Week 17.

The meaningless finale against the Eagles' inept secondary seemed like a perfect spot to get Washington some real NFL chances. The Giants curiously didn't see it that way. So Washington's rookie season ends with five catches for 52 yards and one touchdown in 14 games. He'll likely be buried on the depth chart again next year with Odell Beckham, Victor Cruz (if healthy) and Rueben Randle all under contract.

Coach Tom Coughlin said Corey Washington needs to practice better and do more on special teams to earn more offensive snaps.

With the Giants' season lost, Washington played just one snap last week against the Redskins and 54 in total as a rookie. "Do a better job on the practice field. Do a better job all around," Coughlin said. "He does have to, obviously, become better at his job." Coughlin says Washington knows the offense well enough to play. But he remains behind Kevin Ogletree. Washington remains a player worth holding in deeper Dynasty leagues after dominating the preseason.

Giants WR Corey Washington caught four passes for 48 yards and one touchdown in the Giants' Week 9 blowout loss to the Colts.

Washington was only in the game deep in the fourth quarter because of the score and Preston Parker hurt his foot. Washington, an UDFA rookie out of Newberry, had played just 24 snaps the previous eight games. He's a 6-foot-4, 214-pound jump-ball specialist with a limited route tree. But Washington is worth keeping an eye on, especially in Dynasty. If Parker is out for an extended time, Washington should see increased looks in the Giants' three-wide base set. He dominated the preseason for 10-155-4.

Giants WRs coach Sean Ryan says Corey Washington remains "a work in progress."

"He's learning to run an entire route tree," Ryan said when asked why Washington isn't playing. "There is growing to be done with Corey. He works on his releases, his routes, his top of the breaks, getting out of those -- things he needs to improve on." At 6'4/214, Washington is merely a Dynasty stash and watch-list candidate. With Odell Beckham and Rueben Randle expected to see increased reps in the slot with Victor Cruz out, Washington could see a few snaps on the outside.

The New York Daily News suggests Corey Washington could get a look as a red-zone package player going forward.

Washington was the star of Giants training camp, catching four touchdowns in preseason games and making the team as an undrafted free agent out of tiny Newberry College. At 6'4/214 with 4.5 speed, he's the kind of player we like to take shots on. Now that Victor Cruz (knee) is down, there's room for the Giants to give Washington some snaps, although Preston Parker will likely get the first chance in three-wide sets. Washington is just a player to put on watch lists.

Undrafted rookie WR Corey Washington has made the Giants' 53-man roster.

We wouldn't be surprised to see Washington play in three- or four-wide sets to open the year. The 22-year-old from tiny Newberry College finished the exhibition season with 10 catches for 155 yards and four touchdowns. A favorite of small-school receiver guru Matthew Freedman, Washington has 4.50 speed and a 10-foot-5 broad jump at 6-foot-4, 214. He's worth a serious look in Dynasty leagues.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin said undrafted WR Corey Washington has played in "superb fashion" and that "certainly gets your attention."

Washington is having a strong preseason with a touchdown in four straight games. He should be a lock for a roster spot. Washington could push for snaps in red-zone and four-wide packages.
Sat, Aug 23, 2014 03:18:00 PM

Corey Washington caught 2-of-4 targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason game.

Another nice stat line, but all of Washington's work came with Ryan Nassib and the second-team offense. Nevertheless, he's now up to nine catches for 152 yards and four touchdowns through four preseason games. He's just about sewn up a spot on the 53-man roster.
