Free agent WR Nate Washington worked out for the Bucs on Tuesday.
The Bucs are absurdly low on receivers behind Mike Evans. Now 33, Washington caught 47 passes in 14 games for the Texans last season, averaging 14 yards per grab. He couldn't make the Patriots this summer, but might have a little something left in the tank. Tue, Oct 25, 2016 06:26:00 PM

Lions worked out free agent Nate Washington.

It's the second team to show interest in Washington after he visited with the Saints last week. Washington has a decent chance to resurface now that veteran contracts aren't guaranteed.

Saints worked out free agent Nate Washington.

They also had Rueben Randle, Andre Caldwell, and Greg Little in for visits. Washington has struggled for interest since his Patriots release, but could resurface after Week 1.
Wed, Sep 7, 2016 06:19:00 PM

Patriots released WR Nate Washington.

Washington was buried on the depth chart in New England and didn't even make it to final cuts. The 33-year-old (on Sunday) had some big games for the Texans last season on his way to a 48-661-4 line, but wasn't brought back and settled for a minimum deal with the Patriots. He should be able to land another look-see at some point this season once injuries hit other teams.

The Boston Herald's Jeff Howe considers Nate Washington a long shot for a roster spot in New England.

The Patriots' website previously noted Washington "struggled to get on the same page" with Tom Brady at spring workouts. Howe believes Washington would need an injury ahead of him on the depth chart or a "lights out" training camp to make the 53. Washington is currently not practicing due to an undisclosed illness.

Patriots.com's Paul Perillo said Nate Washington struggled to get "on the same page" with Tom Brady during the offseason program.

Many veteran receivers have faced similar problems when joining the Patriots, but it is still surprising considering Washington played in a similar offense with the Texans. In a wide-open competition for the No. 5 job, Washington will have to show better in training camp to earn a roster spot. He likely needs to beat out both Keshawn Martin and Aaron Dobson to keep his job.

Patriots signed WR Nate Washington, formerly of the Texans.

The Pats were Washington's only known visit of free agency. Going on 33, Washington gives a Pats team sorely lacking outside receivers an option on the perimeter. He was an effective role player for Houston in 2015, catching 47 passes for 658 yards and four touchdowns. The Pats probably still aren't done bringing in downfield options after releasing Brandon LaFell. Washington joins Chris Hogan, Keshawn Martin and Aaron Dobson.

Free agent Nate Washington visited the Patriots on Monday.

It's the first we've heard of Washington since his Texans contract expired. Washington can still run some routes down the sideline, catching 47 passes for 658 yards and four scores last season. He'd be a vertical option for a team entirely lacking them.
Mon, Mar 14, 2016 05:11:00 PM

Nate Washington caught 1-of-6 targets for three yards in the Texans' Wild Card loss to the Chiefs.

Washington had a couple of drops and was badly overthrown on one of Brian Hoyer's four interceptions. It was a dreadful performance for both players. Washington seemed to be passed by rookie WR Jaelen Strong late in the game. 32-year-old Washington posted a 47-658-4 line in the regular season and still has some deep speed, but he's nothing more than a sub-package, No. 4 receiver on a good team. Washington will be a free agent in March.
Sat, Jan 9, 2016 08:52:00 PM

Nate Washington (hip) is listed as probable for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Chiefs.

He returned to a limited practice on Thursday and appears to be on track to play Saturday. Washington caught six-of-11 targets for 105 yards against Kansas City in the season opener.
Fri, Jan 8, 2016 02:40:00 PM

Updating an earlier item, Nate Washington (hip) returned to Texans practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Washington appeared to be limited to side work, but the Texans felt comfortable enough with his participation to slap him with a "limited" tag. It's possible Washington's Wild Card status won't be known until inactives are announced Saturday afternoon.
Thu, Jan 7, 2016 04:06:00 PM

Nate Washington (hip) remained sidelined on Thursday, and is considered day to day.

Washington is getting in side work, but beginning to look unlikely for Saturday's Wild Card game. Washington's status is a big deal, as Cecil Shorts' (hamstring) availability is also uncertain. Rookie Jaelen Strong could be thrust into a big role behind DeAndre Hopkins.
Thu, Jan 7, 2016 02:40:00 PM

Nate Washington (hip) did not practice Wednesday.

He worked on a side field. Washington injured his hip in the Week 17 finale. Cecil Shorts (hamstring) is also walking wounded, so it could be Jaelen Strong as the No. 2 receiver for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Chiefs.
Wed, Jan 6, 2016 02:41:00 PM

Texans WR Nate Washington suffered a left hip injury in Houston's Week 17 game against the Jaguars, and will not return.

Washington went down before the half, and was ruled out midway through the third quarter. Washington battled hip issues earlier this season, and the Texans could just be being caution ahead of next week's Wild Card game. With Cecil Shorts week to week with a hamstring injury, the Texans can ill afford a multi-week issue from their No. 2/3 receiver.
Sun, Jan 3, 2016 03:10:00 PM

Nate Washington caught 3-of-5 targets for 42 yards and a touchdown Week 16 against the Titans.

Washington was not heavily involved in the passing game early, but he paid off desperate streamers with a leaping touchdown grab over B.W. Webb in the third quarter. Washington now has four touchdowns in three games without Cecil Shorts this season. If Shorts remains out, Washington will remain a streaming option next week against the Jaguars.
