Washington leaves Pittsburgh for Tennessee
Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker
Washington's first choice was to stay in Pittsburgh, but the Steelers didn't make a push for him in free agency. He visited the Detroit Lions and eventually settled with the Titans, where he will have a chance to play for an AFC contender.
For the Steelers, this means the No. 3 receiver is currently 2008 draft pick Limas Sweed, who struggled with his few opportunities last season. Pittsburgh offensive coordinator Bruce Arians likes to run a lot of three-receiver sets and may want to bring in a veteran to push and compete with Sweed in training camp.
(Update: ESPN.com senior writer John Clayton reports Washington's deal is for six years, $27 million.)
