In 2015, his first and only season as a Texan, Washington played in 14 games, grabbing 47 balls for 658 yards and four touchdowns. The veteran spent a season in Bill O’Brien‘s offense in Houston and it he was expected to have an easy time transitioning to the Pats, O’Brien’s old team.

Washington first entered the league with the Steelers as a UDFA from D-II Tiffin University. In his second year with the Steelers, Washington broke out in the flanker role, hauling in 35 catches for 624 yards and four touchdowns. A few years later, Washington signed a lucrative free agent deal with the Titans and played out the entire six-year contract.
