Player Outlook

Nate Washington will compete for a starting spot with the Patriots this summer, but it's believed that his experience as an outside receiver will give him a huge edge. Nobody is expecting huge stats from Washington, who last posted seven touchdowns and just over 1,000 yards in 2011. Your best bet is to consider him off waivers as a one-week replacement type. You're better off trying your luck with a younger wideout with upside like Sammie Coates or Ty Montgomery on Draft Day.

Player News
  • Washington could be on the Patriots' roster bubble. At this stage, health permitting, Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell top the Patriots' wideout depth chart, with Washington slated to battle for depth slotting with Keshawn Martin, Aaron Dobson and Chris Harper. Whether the quartet ends up battling for just one spot (or more) depends on the team's injury situation, but for now, Washington has yet to gain much traction in the competition, after reportedly seeming to struggle to get on the same page as QB Tom Brady during OTAs and minicamp. When he's on, Washington still has the ability to serve as a deep threat, but the veteran wideout will need to impress in training camp to land a roster spot with New England.

  • The Patriots will sign Washington, ESPN's Field Yates reports. Washington figures to transition well to the Patriots' offense, having played this past season with the Texans, who are coached by former New England offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien. The 6-foot-1, 183-pound wideout, who turns 33 in August, can still present a downfield option at this stage of his career, and with the Patriots looking for an added outside presence at the position, Washington could be a solid complement to the likes of Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and fellow newcomer Chris Hogan. Washington is coming off a 2015 campaign in which he recorded 47 catches for 658 yards and four TDs with the Texans over 14 games.

  • Nate Washington: Visits Patriots
    By RotoWire Staff

    Washington visited the Patriots on Monday, WEEI.com reports. The 32-year-old wideout can still present a downfield option at this stage of his career, and with the Patriots looking for a little depth at the position, he could be a solid fit, at the right price. Washington is coming off a 2015 campaign in which he recorded 47 catches for 658 yards and four TDs with the Texans.

  • Texans' Nate Washington: One catch in playoff loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Washington caught one of six targets for three yards in Saturday's playoff loss to the Chiefs. Washington, like every ball catcher, was hampered by the poor play of quarterback Brian Hoyer in the 30-0 loss to Kansas City. He finished the regular season second in receptions (47), targets (94) and yards (658), though he was rarely a difference maker. He'll be an unrestricted free agent in March and could re-sign with Houston, but with several holes to fill, the Texans won't be focused on the wideout position.

  • Texans' Nate Washington: Active Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Washington (hip) is listed as active Saturday against the Chiefs. After injuring his hip in the season finale, Washington logged just two limited practices this week, but the ailment won't stop him from taking part in the do-or-die matchup. He didn't exactly end the season in the high note, failing to surpass 50 yards in each of the last eight games, which doesn't bode well against Kansas City's ninth-ranked pass defense.
