|Texans sign WR Nate Washington|
AFC South receiver stays in the division
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Apr 1, 4:00 pm
|The Houston Texans signed veteran wide receiver Nate Washington on Wednesday.
Terms of the deal weren't announced. Washington, who will be 32 before the season starts, played the previous six seasons with the Tennessee Titans.
FFToday's Take: Washington and Cecil Shorts have been signed to fill the void of Andre Johnson. Washington has filled a secondary receiver role in Tennessee the last few years and his best season came in 2011 when posted 74 receptions, 1023 yards, 7 TDs. In Houston, he'll battle Shorts for targets but in fantasy, he will likely go undrafted.

|Free-agent wide receiver Cecil Shorts has agreed to a two-year deal with the Houston Texans, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Caplan.

FFToday's Take: You can pencil in Shorts opposite DeAndre Hopkins in the Texans starting lineup. He's yet to back up his breakout performance in 2012 (55-979-7) and has developed the injury-prone tag thanks to nagging lower leg injuries. Shorts was bothered by a hamstring injury during camp last season and missed three games at the start of the season. With Hopkins expected to dominate targets, Shorts will be nothing more than a late-round flier in fantasy leagues this summer.
|Jags GM optimistic on return of Justin Blackmon|
Jags hope to receive more clarity before NFL Draft
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Jan 30, 3:00 pm
|On if he would welcome back suspended receiver Justin Blackmon if he’s reinstated:
“Absolutely. As a matter of fact, I’m very optimistic. I think he’s paid his dues. I think he’s got his life together. I think he can be a role model for people who have gone through hard times. We’re waiting for him.” (Florida Times Union)|
FFToday's Take: Speaking at the Super Bowl festivities, Jacksonville owner Shad Khan seems positive about Blackmon who is currently suspended infinitely and it remains unclear when he will apply for reinstatement. Allen Robinson (foot) and Cecil Shorts (free agent) are currently sitting atop the depth chart.
