Smith was seen comforting an emotional Washington in the locker room after the 31-year-old went catch-less against the Colts. Washington has little left to offer on the field.

Nate Washington was held without a catch on three targets in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Colts.

Washington shed tears in the locker room after the game, knowing his NFL career could be over. He enters free agency as a 32-year-old (in August) receiver who posted a 40-647-2 line in 2014. Washington's best chance of latching on somewhere is as a Jason Avant kind of No. 4/5 receiver who is brought in for veteran leadership.
Dec 28 - 5:26 PM

Nate Washington caught 2-of-3 targets for 18 yards in the Titans' Week 16 loss to the Jaguars.

Washington's 6/102 Week 15 outburst was due in large part to facing the Jets' invisible secondary. The workmanlike veteran will not be on the DFS radar for next week's finale against the Colts.
Dec 18 - 11:59 PM

Nate Washington caught 6-of-10 targets for 102 yards Week 15 against the Jets.

Washington played well as the focal point of the Titans' passing attack with Kendall Wright (hand) sidelined. He converted two third downs and had three plays of 20-plus yards. If Wright does not return for Week 16, Washington could be an interesting play against the Jaguars.
Dec 14 - 8:11 PM

Nate Washington caught three passes for 56 yards in the Titans' Week 14 loss to the Giants.

He caught all three of his targets. Washington was the Titans' in-name-only No. 1 receiver with Kendall Wright (hand) and Justin Hunter (spleen) hurt. He doesn't have much left in the tank and was out-produced by Derek Hagan.
Dec 7 - 5:12 PM

Nate Washington caught 5-of-9 targets for 61 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' Week 13 loss to the Texans.

Washington's highlight was a 25-yard touchdown catch in garbage time, delivered by Jake Locker, who was filling in for injured Zach Mettenberger. A non-factor in fantasy leagues all year, Washington isn't worth grabbing off waiver wires as Tennessee gets set to face the Giants in Week 14.
Nov 30 - 4:26 PM

Nate Washington caught four passes for 63 yards in Sunday's Week 12 loss at Philadelphia.

Washington was third on the team in targets with six, behind both Justin Hunter (10) and Delanie Walker (9). On most days, Kendall Wright (six targets) will be up there too -- but he was shut down by Brandon Boykin. Washington, now averaging 2.1 catches per game on the season, is waiver-wire fodder.
Nov 23 - 5:39 PM

Nate Washington caught an 80-yard touchdown in the Titans' Week 11 loss to the Steelers.

Just before halftime, Washington burned William Gay on a double-move for the long touchdown to put the Titans up 17-13 heading into the locker room. The ex-Steeler saw just one other target on the night. He's waiver-wire material.
Nov 18 - 12:07 AM

Nate Washington secured 2-of-30 targets for 30 yards in the Titans' Week 10 loss to the Ravens.

Washington's initial catch went for 17 yards along the right sideline on Tennessee's opening drive. He added a 13-yard connection late in the second quarter. Washington is the Titans' third receiver, behind Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter. He isn't even worth rostering in 16-team leagues.
Nov 9 - 4:08 PM

Nate Washington (shoulder) returned to a full practice on Friday, but is listed as questionable for Week 10 against Baltimore.

Washington suffered an AC sprain in the shoulder during Week 8, but had the Titans' Week 9 bye to heal up. He will play in three-receiver sets Sunday against the Ravens, with Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter manning the two-wides.
Nov 7 - 1:15 PM

Nate Washington (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Washington sprained the AC joint in his shoulder in Week 8, but had the Titans' bye to get healthy. Coach Ken Whisenhunt expects him to be available for Sunday's game against the Ravens.
Nov 5 - 3:08 PM

Titans WR Nate Washington sprained the AC joint in his shoulder during Sunday's Week 8 loss to the Texans.

Washington, who lost his starting "X" job to Justin Hunter a few weeks ago, posted a 4-68-0 line on four targets before leaving. The severity of his sprain is unknown, but this is the same injury that sidelined Jordan Cameron and Jimmy Graham for a bit earlier this season. Hunter's arrow continues to point up.
Oct 26 - 5:20 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports teams have been calling the Titans about Nate Washington's availability.

This unofficially translates to, "We, the Titans, would love to trade Nate Washington." Already demoted in favor of Justin Hunter, Washington is just taking up roster and cap space on Tennessee's 53, and could probably be had for a conditional seventh-round pick. Unfortunately for the Titans, Washington has a guaranteed $4.8 million base salary and isn't worth half that much. They'd be lucky to get a bag of punctured footballs for him.
Oct 22 - 9:07 PM

Nate Washington managed two catches for 23 yards in the Titans' Week 6 win over Jacksonville.

He finished with two targets. Washington's numbers, as usual, don't jump off the stat sheet, but he made a critical first-down catch on third down in the second quarter to keep a promising drive alive. A clear-cut role player in Ken Whisenhunt's offense behind Justin Hunter and Kendall Wright, Washington holds no value in fantasy leagues.
Oct 12 - 4:50 PM

Nate Washington secured 4-of-7 targets for 57 yards in the Titans' Week 5 loss to the Browns.

Washington continued to play a complementary role, taking a backseat this week to Justin Hunter, who officially got the start. A plus perimeter blocker but not much of a big-play threat, Washington is only worth owning in 16-team leagues. And even in those deeper formats, he's no better than bench depth.
