Titans WR Nate Washington didn’t look like a 30-year old when he outran the Falcons’ secondary Saturday night, scoring on a 63-yard bomb from Jake Locker.
His tank looked plenty full during his acrobatic sideline catch when he out-muscled an Atlanta corner to complete the grab.
Players like Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter have received most of the offseason headlines among Titans receivers – and deservedly so. Wright is an emerging star who led the Titans in receptions in 2013 with 94. Hunter has been widely regarded as a breakout candidate in 2014.
But don’t sleep on Nate Washington. He might not be a guy who wants the limelight, but he still has plenty to offer entering his 10th NFL season.
Wright seems pretty safe as the team's WR1, but Justin Hunter could compete a little with Washington for playing time and snaps. Last year Hunter played just 36% of the snaps while Washington saw 82%. But with OC Ken Whisenhunt now running things, there's a chance both Hunter and Washington are involved. We consider Washington the teams WR3 in terms of fantasy and rank him lower than both Wright and Hunter.
