Default Nate Washington signs Free Agent Contract

Steelers' Washington signs one-year contract
Wednesday, April 16, 2008
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Wide receiver Nate Washington today signed the one-year contract tendered him by the Steelers as a restricted free agent. He will earn $1,417,000 in 2008.
Also today, inside linebacker Philip Wheeler of Georgia Tech and defensive end/linebacker Jason Jones of Eastern Michigan are the latest two college prospects to visit the Steelers.

I would have liked to have seen Nate signed to a 3 year deal. Either way, we will see an even more focused Nate this season.

A 1 year deal motivates him to work harder. Nothing should be "given" to unproven talent.

Jason Jones would be a nice addition. The MAC has produced some pretty good defensive talent over the years. (James Harrison, Jason Taylor two right off the top of my head)

what do you know about him? pat kirwan has us selecting him in the 2nd round of his mock. however in his DE rankings he has him 9th or 11th overall and as a projected 3rd or 4th rounder. that had me stumped.

I have a feeling this is nate's year

If either Ward or Holmes gets injured I really think the extra playing time he would thrive in

yea i dont know why but i have felt the same way, i just think nate can really show that he is a number 2 receiver in the nfl, so when ward goes (retirement or FA) then nate will take over at number 2.

Hopefully this will be the year that nate really steps up and can show what he can do.

He's still raw, but in the MAC he's a guy who consistently gets double and triple teamed and still makes plays (Taylor was the exact same way). That keeps him from having gaudy numbers. It's hard to say, really, because he's a tweener. He's a bit big to play LB in the 3-4, and about 30 lbs too small to play DL, so he'd have to adjust either way. Whenever there's a guy like that, you have to wonder will he turn out to be Alonzo Jackson or Kameron Wimbley?
