Report: Titans Could Trade Veteran WR Nate Washington Before Deadline

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports that the Tennessee Titans could consider trading veteran WR Nate Washington along with other veterans ahead of next Tuesday’s trade deadline.

This news comes just a day after the Titans sent OLB Akeem Ayers and a seventh-round pick to the Patriots in return for 2015 sixth-round selection.

Tennessee is clearly not in the running to make a serious playoff run this season, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see them add a few draft picks where they can if deals end up being available to them.

Washington, 31, is in the final year of his six-year, $26.8 million contract that included $9 million guaranteed. His base salary is a reasonable $4.8 million, so it would not be a prohibitive sum of money for a team to take on.

Over the course of seven games, Washington has caught 13 passes for 169 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
