  1. Average RB’s look great when the defense has to defend against the best QB in the game. If Washington makes the team, he should have a lot more room to run than he ever thought possible.

  2. He was signed because he does have talent and more precisely to share secrets about the offense (and defense) and player personnel of a division rival.

  3. Washington is a stud, him and Richard are very similar skillsets except Richard is alittle better on special teams when it comes to returning.

    No doubt in my mind that with the Chiefs current RB room that Washington will get significant snaps and playing time and will probably do well, its a shame he stayed in division and well play him twice but i wish him nothing but the best.

  4. I haven’t seen the contract details, but based on what the Chiefs cap number was before and after the signing it looks like they got Washington for some where around 450K. That makes it a value signing, but you have to wonder why the Raiders wouldn’t keep him if they could have for that salary?

    Washington and Richard are almost the same back, but Richard has better hands. I think Gruden is looking for a bigger back to complement Jacobs and Richard.
