Re: Nate Washington
More good Nate Washington news.....
Nate Washington, the pride of Tiffin University, continues to be the Cinderella story of training camp.
Thursday when addressing the intense competition at wide receiver, Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher singled out Washington, an undrafted free agent out of Tiffin, Ohio.
The Steelers will likely keep six wide receivers. Four of them already have job security - Hines Ward, Antwaan Randle El, Cedrick Wilson and rookie Fred Gibson, a fourth-round draft pick.
That means eight others are fighting for two roster spots.
"Nate Washington, right now, has probably been the one guy who's been the most consistent player," Cowher said. "Lee Mays and Walter Young have missed some practice time (due to injuries), so if there's one player who has seized his opportunity, it's been Nate Washington."
