Summary

There's no other way to put it; James Washington had a disappointing rookie season in 2018. Sure, he was buried on the depth chart a bit but Washington did appear in 14 games, playing a total of 526 snaps, running 368 routes, getting 38 targets but only catching 16 passes for 217 yards and one touchdown. A second-round pick out of Oklahoma State in 2018, Washington has a large wingspan and was known as a consistent and reliable receiver in college. We didn't really see much of that skill set during his first season with the Steelers. Washington did finish the year on somewhat of a positive note, having 60 or more yards receiving in two of the final three games of the season. We'll see if Washington can carry that momentum over to the 2019 campaign. The Steelers have a big hole to fill in the WR corps with Antonio Brown traded away, and it would greatly help this team if Washington could take that next step in his pro career. (May 10)
