Re: Nate Washington
To be honest, I'm not real comfortable with our WRs after Ward and Holmes. Wilson is too inconsistent, and seems to have trouble getting open. Washington would be great as a fith or sixth reciever. He has made some spectacular plays, but he too needs to be more consistent on the routine plays. Willie Reed, Dallas Baker??? Who knows! If Holmes or Ward goes down for an extended period of time with an injury, we're in trouble. I still would not mind seeing the Steelers offer a low risk contract to one of these vet receives still out there. Give somebody a shot to compete for a spot, and if it does not work out, they can cut him before the season starts, no harm, no foul. Somebody like Keenan McCardell, David Patten, or an Antonio Bryant. Of course, one of these guys would have to accept a low risk offer, and I'm not sure the ego of any of these guys would allow it.
