The Steelers trimmed their roster to 86 players today when they released first-year wide receiver Gerran Walker and free agent rookie long snapper Jared Retkofsky.

now this is a rather obscure and kinda complex ranking system (see link), but some see the potential washington showed in his 1st year on the active roster:

Mitigation. Hines Ward's decline is being met by the ascension of Santonio Holmes and Heath Miller into excellent players; either way, a healthy Ben Roethlisberger will make everyone's numbers look better this year. Nate Washington (19.9 percent DVOA, 14th in the league) is rounding into form as an Antwaan Randle El replacement, and it would be shocking if this group were not closer to the top 10 this time next season.

Hmmm....

Who knows... I would love to see him succeed (Washington), but I don't know.

I agree Preacher. I don't know about Washington either. He had a lot of drops (some key in the end zone) last year. However, in the rookie year, he prevented a pass being picked off in the end zone during the Denver game (I believe). Kid's got heart from what I have seen. The skill just needs to be developed.

That's good to hear. Now he has to prove it instead of dropping balls in the endzone. Hopefully he steps up this season. Until then he's still questionable in my book.
