Two AFC East rivals already have reached out to Kelley Washington, the receiver and special teams-contributor the New England Patriots released on Tuesday.

 Washington

Washington's agent, Chad Speck, said Washington will meet Thursday with the New York Jets and has been contacted by the Buffalo Bills about visiting next week.

Buffalo would seem to provide more playing time for the 6-foot-3 Washington. James Hardy, last year's second-round draft pick, will miss the offseason while rehabbing from knee surgery. After Lee Evans, the Bills' top targets are 5-foot-10 Josh Reed and 5-foot-9 Roscoe Parrish.

The Jets have Laveranues Coles, Jerricho Cotchery and Chansi Stuckey on their roster.

Washington was known more for his grunt work in New England. In 24 games with the Patriots, he caught only one pass for 3 yards. But he was a significant special-teams contributor last year with 18 tackles and a blocked punt.

He never could crack the Patriots' offensive lineup because the receiving corps is so deep. Not many passes to go around with Randy Moss, Wes Welker and Jabar Gaffney at the front of the line. The Boston Globe reported Washington's cap hit for 2009 would have been $1.08 million.

Washington, the 65th overall draft pick out of Tennessee in 2003, was a decent complementary receiver in his four seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals. During his first two years in the league he had 53 receptions for 677 yards and seven touchdowns.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots have deactivated defensive lineman Ty Warren for Sunday afternoon's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Gillette Stadium.

It will be the second time in the past three games Warren has been scratched with a groin injury. Also out for the Patriots is running back LaMont Jordan for the eighth straight game because of a calf problem. Jordan practiced quite a bit this week, raising hopes he would be available.

Here is the complete list of inactives for the game:

The New England Patriots have upgraded three of their players from doubtful to questionable, but none of them are starters.

Considered questionable are receiver Kelley Washington (ankle), linebacker Eric Alexander (hamstring) and cornerback Jonathan Wilhite (flu).

The New England Patriots listed seven players as doubtful for Monday night's game against the Denver Broncos in Gillette Stadium.

They are: Running backs Laurence Maroney (shoulder) and LaMont Jordan (calf), starting right tackle Nick Kaczur (ankle), receiver Kelley Washington (ankle) defensive end Jarvis Green (ankle), linebacker Eric Alexander (hamstring) and Jonathan Wilhite (flu).

Pro Bowl left tackle Matt Light remained off the injury list after missing Wednesday's practice with a knee injury. The NFL's "doubtful" designation means there's a 75 percent chance the player will not swuit up.
