  • Saints' James Washington: Heading to New Orleans

    Washington agreed Monday with the Saints on a one-year contract, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

    The 2018 second-round pick had 735 yards for Pittsburgh in his second pro season but otherwise has finished below 400 yards in every campaign, including last year when a broken foot and subsequent slide down the depth chart limited him to two games and zero catches for Dallas. The 27-year-old Washington now heads to New Orleans, where Chris Olave, Michael Thomas (toe) and Rashid Shaheed profile as the likely top three WRs. Washington will compete for a depth role amongst a group that includes Tre'Quan Smith, Keith Kirkwood, Bryan Edwards and sixth-round rookie A.T. Perry.

  • James Washington: Gets opportunity with Giants

    The Giants signed Washington to their practice squad Wednesday, Dan Salomone of the team's official site reports.

    Once he made a recovery from the fractured right foot he suffered in training camp, Washington struggled to carve out playing time in a crowded Dallas receiver room. Upon being cleared for his Cowboys debut in Week 14, Washington went on to play just 14 snaps over his two games with Dallas before being waived last week. Washington didn't have to wait long to find a new opportunity with another playoff team, and given the underwhelming state of the Giants' receiving corps, it wouldn't be surprising if he was elevated from the practice squad ahead of Sunday's wild-card matchup with the Vikings. Even if Washington doesn't debut with the Giants during the postseason, his presence on the practice squad will at least allow the organization to evaluate him for a potential signing heading into the 2023 season.

  • James Washington: On way out of Dallas

    The Cowboys informed Washington on Wednesday that he'll be waived, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    After joining Dallas on a one-year deal last March, Washington appeared to be in good shape to open the season in a top-three role at receiver while Michael Gallup worked his back from an ACL tear, but a fractured right foot suffered early in training camp prevented that from materializing. Following a lengthy recovery from surgery, Washington was cleared to make his season debut in Week 14, but he ended up playing just 14 snaps between his first two games with Dallas before sitting out the both of the past two weeks as a healthy inactive while the newly signed T.Y. Hilton supplanted him as the team's No. 4 receiver. Since Washington doesn't offer the ability to contribute on special teams like fellow depth wideouts KaVontae Turpin and Jalen Tolbert, the Cowboys elected to move on from the 26-year-old, who will seek out an opportunity elsewhere ahead of the 2023 season.

  • Cowboys' James Washington: Isn't suiting up again

    Washington (coach's decision) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Titans, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    For the second consecutive game, Washington won't be available as a result of a coach's decision. In his absence, Noah Brown and T.Y. Hilton are both slated to serve as rotational wide receivers behind starters CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup in Week 17.

  • Cowboys' James Washington: Healthy scratch Week 16

    Washington (coach's decision) has been ruled inactive ahead of Saturday's matchup against the Eagles, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Washington sat out the first 12 games of the season while recovering from a foot injury, and the 26-year-old has logged just one target while playing 14 offensive snaps since returning to action Week 14. With Washington sidelined, T.Y. Hilton appears set to serve as the Cowboys' No. 4 wideout while making his season debut Saturday.

  • Cowboys' James Washington: Invisible in Dallas debut

    Washington failed to catch his only target and saw 11 offensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Texans.

    Seeing his first action of the season after recovering from a foot injury, Washington's workload was limited, but he got a rude welcome to the Cowboys offense, getting the ball jarred loose on a big hit by Houston safety Jalen Pitre the only time Dak Prescott looked his way. With Noah Brown having earned Prescott's trust earlier in the year and coming off a big performance Sunday, Washington could have a hard time climbing above the No. 4 spot on the WR depth chart down the stretch.

  • Cowboys' James Washington: Set to play Sunday

    Washington (foot) was activated off injured reserve Saturday and will play Sunday against the Giants, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Washington has not played this season after fracturing his foot during the preseason, but the long-time Steeler is gearing up to make his 2022 season debut in a pivotal divisional matchup against the Giants. Given the Cowboys' starting trio of wideouts -- CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup and Noah Brown -- are all healthy, it's hard to project many opportunities for Washington to carve out a consistent role. Expect the 26-year-old to be a quality depth piece for a team that has Super Bowl aspirations.

  • Cowboys' James Washington: Expected to play in Week 14

    Washington (foot) appears likely to be reinstated from injured reserve ahead of Sunday's game against the Texans, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Dallas head coach Mike McCarthy said Friday that he thinks that Washington is ready to make his season debut based on what he saw out of the wide receiver at practices Wednesday and Thursday. Washington fractured his right foot in a training camp workout in August and has been sidelined all season after signing a one-year deal with Dallas in March. CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup are Dallas' clear top two receivers, and Noah Brown has been a pleasant surprise as the team's No. 3 wideout this season, so Washington may not find himself any higher than fourth on the depth chart if he debuts Sunday.
