WR James Washington is "invaluable" to the Steelers, per Mark Kaboly of the Athletic.
"Washington’s skill set in invaluable," Kaboly added. Juju Smith-Schuster is a good combat catch guy, probably the best on the team, but Washington has better speed and can make those catches downfield." The 24-year-old is expected to be the Steelers' top downfield threat. He will compete with Diontae Johnson and Chase Claypool for Pittsburgh's WR2 role. Washington hauled in 44 receptions on 80 targets for 735 yards and three touchdowns across 15 games in 2019. He is currently 64th among all wideouts in the latest expert consensus rankings.
James Washington has been activated from the reserve/COVID 19 list and will be joining the Steelers' training camp.
The Steelers put Washington on the reserve/COVID-19 list on August 2nd, but he has now been activated from it. The quick turnaround is a good sign for Washington as he rejoins the team. Washington will be competing for a starting spot with Diontae Johnson and rookie Chase Claypool. Hopefully training camp will give some clarity to what Washington's role is with the team for the 2020 season.
