There’s no doubt Nate Washington hasn’t played up to his ability with the Tennessee Titans, but talented wide receivers don’t grow on trees and there’s hope Washington will eventually turn the corner and become the productive talent many believe he can be.
That’s part of the reason why the Titans are likely to keep Washington on their roster rather than cutting him, despite the fact that it would save the organization nearly $5 million dollars.
The starters should be in place – Washington appears safe despite his $4.8 million base salary, while Wright (third year) and Hunter (second) should be better with experience under their belts – but the depth is a bit shaky for now.
The Titans have already moved on from Kenny Britt and Washington could be an impact talent if the tools were ever properly harnessed, so it’s understandable why the Titans want to keep him even though they’ve asked players on the team to take salary cuts.
Washington projects as the third wideout on the roster behind both Wright and Hunter.
