Washington meeting with Lions
Free-agent receiver Nate Washington is in Detroit now, a league source confirmed minutes ago.
Washington, who caught a career-high 40 passes for 631 yards last year, appears to be the Lions' No. 1 receiver target in free agency. He made just one start last year and caught one pass in the Super Bowl, but would be Detroit's No. 2 receiver opposite Calvin Johnson because of his ability to stretch the field.
Other teams reportedly interested in signing Washington, 26, are Minnesota, Tennessee and Tampa Bay.
