Mike Tomlin Dismisses Report James Washington Requested Trade

Published

on

PITTSBURGH – Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin waisted no time on Saturday dismissing a report that wide receiver James Washington is disgruntled by limited opportunities and requested a trade.

“Those unnamed sources, we don’t react to or respond to (them),” Tomlin said. “James has been great here, and working, and having a good camp.”

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Friday that Washington has been displeased with his limited playing time since last season, and that he had asked the team to send him elsewhere.

Washington hauled in 30 passes for 392 yards and five touchdowns a season ago. According to Pro Football Reference, he played 44% of the Steelers’ offensive snaps.
