Packers give up on 2004 draftee Washington

GREEN BAY, Wis. (June 9, 2006) -- The Green Bay Packers released defensive tackle Donnell Washington, a third-round draft pick in 2004 who never played in a regular-season game.

The 328-pound Washington was sent home from the Packers' post-draft minicamp in early May because he reported out of shape. Washington suffered a foot injury early in training camp as a rookie in 2004, missed all four preseason games and was placed on injured reserve.

Last year, he started at defensive tackle in a preseason game at Buffalo but was inactive for 15 of the 16 regular-season games. He was active for the game against Atlanta but did not play.
