The Tennessee Titans parted ways with one veteran on Tuesday in Akeem Ayers. Could Nate Washington be the next known commodity to be sent on his way?

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday on NFL Total Access that teams have been calling the Titans about the wide receiver, who recently lost his starting job in Tennessee to Justin Hunter. Washington, 31, is in the final year of a six-year, $26.8 million contract signed in March 2009. He's making $4.8 million this season.

Rapoport has heard the Titans could be looking to part ways with some of their other high-paid veterans as well. On Thursday, he revealed that in addition to Washington, teams are looking at linebacker Wesley Woodyard and safety Michael Griffin

Washington has 13 receptions for 169 yards in seven games. His best season came in 2011, when he had 74 catches for 1,023 yards and seven touchdowns. He's become a complementary player in Ken Whisenhunt's offense this season, playing behind Hunter and Kendall Wright.

Washington is who he is at this point, a serviceable No. 3-type receiver who can make an impact in the right situation. We imagine he can be had for a late-round pick.
