Cornelius Washington: Let go by Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions released Washington on Monday.

Washington suited up for 30 games over the last two seasons between Chicago and Detroit, making 44 tackles, 4.5 sacks and four pass breakups. The Lions brought in defensive tackles Sylvester Williams and Ricky Jean Francois via free agency, so Washington's depth role wasn't necessary anymore. He'll have less than three weeks to make another team before Week 1 kicks off.

Lions' Cornelius Washington: Activated off NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington (undisclosed) was activated off the NFI list Friday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Washington is expected to play a rotational role for the Lions this fall. The defensive end contributed in a similar capacity during his first year with the Lions last season and contributed 24 tackles and 2.5 sacks. Because of his experience in both 4-3 and 3-4 defenses in the past, Washington could be a great fit in Matt Patricia's scheme that favors versatility.

Lions' Cornelius Washington: Lands on NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington (undisclosed) was placed on the Non-Football Injury list Thursday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Washington took part in most activities during spring workouts this offseason, so it isn't clear what he's dealing with. When healthy, the five-year vet will look to compete for a depth role along the defensive line.

Lions' Cornelius Washington: Finds success in Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington recorded 24 tackles, 2.5 sacks and three PBUs across 15 games in 2017.

Signed by Detroit in the offseason after spending his first four years with Chicago, Washington enjoyed a strong season in 2017 and easily turned in the most productive campaign of his career. He ultimately finished as a top-40 4-3 defensive end by Pro Football Focus, mostly due to his strong work as a pass rusher. He isn't in the IDP conversation quite yet, but that could change if the Lions are unable to re-sign starting defensive end Ezekiel Ansah this offseason.
