No deal was immediately struck, but the interest is apparently mutual after Washington outshined Tab Perry and Jerry Porter during five practice sessions. So, the Ravens reached out to Washington's agent.
If a deal is ultimately worked out, the former Cincinnati Bengals third-round draft pick could be officially signed prior to a passing camp next week.
"I'm just grateful for the Ravens to give me an opportunity to come and try out," Washington said Sunday as the Ravens concluded their minicamp. "Just being a veteran, I want to get into a great situation. I want to play for a contending team. It's just going to be a situation where I sit down with my agent and see what's the best situation for me and how I can get on the field and play some wide receiver, continue to help out on special teams and help them win.
"I'm more of a physical style receiver. I'm big and I like to get in the middle and get dirty and just be a big, physical target. I think I can bring that to the team, but that's up to management to determine."
Washington caught one pass last season for the New England Patriots, also blocking a punt.
Washington was recently offered a veteran minimum contract by the Washington Redskins after participating in their minicamp on a trial basis, but the Redskins have recently signed wide receivers Roydell Williams and Keith Eloi.
