The venerable Washington continues to outwork and outplay younger, more athletic, and underachieving youngsters vying for time on the perimeter. After taking his act on the road with the Titans and the Texans, Washington joins the Patriots. If rookie Malcolm Mitchell struggles, Washington could team with Tom Brady for low-end starter production as the team's main perimeter threat on vertical routes.

Summary

The market wasn't very active for Nate Washington after his contract with the Houston Texans expired, with the visit to New England his only known visit. A decent role player in 2015, Washington isn't as fast or able to separate as smoothly as he used to be, but the Patriots aren't exactly stacked with vertical threats. If Washington can get his head wrapped around the playbook, his veteran experience could get Tom Brady's trust early on, in which case he could see plenty of work. No matter what he sees though, it will always been pretty far behind what Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski see, limiting his upside to depth. (May 20)
