I saw this coming. I didn't see a single scenario where we brought him back, but ESPN is reporting that he will be drawing a lot of interest from the Titans. I was going to post a link but it's Insider and I don't think everyone can get to it so...
Will Titans bait Nate with big offer?Nate Washington | Steelers | Interested: Titans?
The relationship between the Pittsburgh Steelers and wide receiver Nate Washington is drawing to a close, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, and one team who could be taking a hard look at Washington this offseason is the Tennessee Titans.
While Washington will always hold the Steelers in high regard after they nurtured him from undrafted free agent to 40-catch contributor in 2008, it appears that the two parties may be calling it quits when free agency begins on February 27. When asked about the level of conversation the team had had with Washington or agent Thomas Tafelski as of yet, Tafelski told the Tribune-Review, "None. I would have thought they would have reached out. We spoke briefly at the Super Bowl."
While seemingly every potential free agent wide receiver will be linked to the Tennessee Titans in the coming weeks, Washington is an option that could be a great fit for what the Titans are lacking. Michael Lombardi, former NFL team executive and current contributor to the National Football Post website, said, "Nate's talent matches what Tennessee is looking for. They're looking for a guy on the outside who can make big plays. He's got the speed to create problems."

I was never a huge Nate fan, but what are the implications here. He could actually be a number one WR there. Justin Gage may have something to say about that but whatever. THOUGHTS?
