Mr. Washington Goes to Tennessee

Former No. 3 wide receiver Nate Washington is now a member of the Tennessee Titans, having signed a six-year $27 million contract to play in Nashville. This strikes me as a lot of money to be paying Washington, and certainly a lot more than the Steelers would ever have considered spending on him.

But now the Steelers really lack depth at wide receiver, and will almost certainly use a high draft choice on a wideout in the coming draft, most likely on a player who can also return kicks. In fact, it wouldn't surprise me if the Steelers draft two wide receivers in the upcoming draft - one high and one in the later rounds - as the Steelers have nothing behind Limas Sweed, who now moves up to become the team's No. 3 wideout.
