James Washington, Pittsburgh Steelers
The New York Jets could look to the Pittsburgh Steelers’ always deep wide receiver crew for someone to come in and make an impact for them in 2020.
One player who might be on the outside looking in is James Washington, a second-round pick in 2018.
Washington appears poised to be out-snapped in 2020 by both JuJu Smith-Schuster and breakout rookie Diontae Johnson, and the Steelers added Notre Dame’s Chase Claypool with their top pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
If Washington has value to a team like the Jets, the Steelers could get something nice in return for him while New York would get a guy who can make a lot of plays downfield.
Washington caught 44 balls last season at nearly 17 yards per reception with three touchdowns.
He’s just starting to come into his own and the Steelers will certainly find ways to get him on the field in 2020, but they could also get nice value for him in a trade.
