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)

Patriots | Jimmy Garoppolo works with starters (Sat Jun 11, 08:15 PM) - New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo split first-team reps QB Tom Brady during a three-day minicamp, and WR Nate Washington said that Garoppolo understands the offense.

Our View: Garoppolo should understand the offense by this point in his career. However, we need to see him make plays under pressure before we get too excited about the possibility of him starting. In college, Garoppolo would mentally go into the fetal position whenever under a slight amount of duress. More comfort in this offense should make him more courageous when the defense is swarming around him. We'll know more about Garoppolo when the preseason gets here.
