The Indianapolis Colts released wide receiver James Washington on Monday, according to a league source. Washington signed with the Colts during training camp but obviously didn't do enough in the short time he was with the team to earn a roster spot heading into the 2023 regular season. The former second-round selection of the Pittsburgh Steelers back in 2018 out of Oklahoma State was unable to secure his only target in two games played with the Dallas Cowboys in 2022 after four seasons in Pittsburgh to begin his career. Washington's best season came in 2019, when he had 44 receptions for 735 yards and three touchdowns in 15 games (10 starts). He will now look to join another team as receiver depth for the 2023 campaign.

The Indianapolis Colts have reached an agreement with wide receiver James Washington on a one-year deal. The 27-year-old signed with the Dallas Cowboys last season, but barely saw any playing time while battling a foot injury. Washington joined the New Orleans Saints this offseason, but was cut a few weeks into training camp. It appears he has found a new home with the Colts. It looks like he has an uphill battle to make the Colts 53-man roster. At best, Washington will be a depth option, so he can be ignored in most fantasy formats going forward.
