Washington is a Patriot!

Former Bengals wide receiver Kelley Washington signed with the Patriots today. From what I know about him he's sort of slow, tall, can make tough catches over the middle, get injured, create touchdowns or just sit on the sideline a be a backup. I really don't see Washington playing a huge role in the Patriots offence this year. However, he can be expected to have somewhere around 25 to 45 receptions for anywhere between 450 to 600 yards and 6 touchdowns (his greatest strength is using his size in the red zone). Overall this is almost risk free signing for the Pats because if he doesn't turn out it's not like they have a lot invested in him - sort of like the Reche Caldwell situation last year - all there really is - is upside. If Kelley doesn't produce or gets injured and never plays - oh well. But on the other hand if he does really great and has a fantastic season like Caldwell had last year - Oh Yeah!!

THAT'S WHAT WE NEEDED! A big, strong receiver who can outmuscle secondaries with speed like Washington. Now, we really have some deep talent at WR... Gabriel, CJackson, Caldwell, Stallworth, Welker, Brown, and now Washington.... WATCH OUT, COLTS!
