The Philadelphia Eagles are expected to work out free-agent WR Kelley Washington on Tuesday, FOXSports.com has learned.
Washington (6-3, 218, Tennessee) was with the Eagles in the preseason and was one of their last roster cuts prior to the start of the regular season.
Washington, who’s known in scouting circles as an excellent special teams player, is also capable of handling a role as an inside or outside receiver.
Philadelphia has struggled in special teams coverage, so Washington could help them in that area if they decide to re-sign him.
Philadelphia has five receivers on their 53-man roster, but rookie Riley Cooper (concussion) missed last week’s game at the San Francisco 49ers.
Washington, 31, was originally selected in the third round of the 2003 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals and has also played for the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens. With Baltimore last season, he saw a lot of time as the team’s third receiver.
