Saints sign Fabian Washington

Former Ravens cornerback Fabian Washington is heading to New Orleans.

Washington, who started eight games for the Ravens last season, has agreed to a one-year deal with the Saints.

The 28-year-old Washington was a first-round pick of the Raiders in 2005 and played there for three years before he was traded to Baltimore, where he played three more years. Now he’s a Saint.

Washington is the seventh former Raven to sign with another team since free agency started.

    Washington ran a sub-4.3 40 at the combine originally. Super fast and a former first round draft pick. Hopefully Gregg Williams can make some use out of him.

    Is this guy good? Is he the replacement for Gay?

    This guy has been extremely inconsistent — he will follow a great game with several few lousy ones. Pretty much sunk down the Ravens depth chart behind Webb, Wilson and Carr last year for this reason. It’s frustrating because at times he looks like the 1st rounder he could be, but can’t seem to maintain. The Saints had better bring a lot of offense this year because their D is going to get beat by deep throwing QBs with this guy.

    “Washington is the seventh Raven to sign with a different team since the start of free agency” that is a HUGE statement, what are we doing?!

    They signed him to compete behind Porter and Greer and with Robinson and Patrick. He may not even make the team. Torrence was resigned to work at his special teams gunner role.

    Well I guess if the departures become too numerous you could always go out and steal another team!

    He offers experience and discipline to help with the younger guys in the secondary & will also add depth and speed on special teams. He can help but still isn’t exactly what I was hoping for in FA. A good secondary has a great front 7…….that’s what I heard…

    Good signing to get Jason Terry … I mean Fabian “The Jet” Washington.

    Are these departures major losses for the Ravens or is the team just letting go of some dead weight? Ozzie’s one personnel guy whose decisions I’d feel confident about … assuming he has enough cap room to keep the players he truly wants.

    Won’t miss this guy at all. He is very very streaky. Plays one good game and the follows with a few big time clunkers. Also has absolute stone hands which is why he never has INT’s. Not a bad guy. Good locker room guy. But never lived up to the high first round pick billing. Better served as a nickel or dime corner than a starter at this point in his career.

    I always signed him on madden…He always had speed in the 97-99 range
