"The New Orleans Saints announced today that they have signed free agent running back Darrel Williams and have terminated the contract of wide receiver James Washington," according to the team's official website.
There's little doubt that Washington can play in the NFL, but a rocky end to his Steelers tenure, time with the Cowboys, and now being released by the Saints make it feel like it's been a long time since his value has been climbing rather than declining.
Washington made an immediate impression with Pittsburgh at the start of his NFL career. Washington became a crucial weapon for the Steelers in 2019 after being picked in the second round of the 2018 NFL draft and playing a minor part in his debut season.
