Saints keep reserve rusher, special teams regular Washington


NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis says the club has re-signed reserve running back and special teams regular Dwayne Washington. The four-year NFL veteran out of Washington has spent the past two seasons with New Orleans. He’s carried 35 times for 214 yards in that span. He also has had five special teams stops, a deflected punt and a blocked punt recovery in 29 games with the Saints. The 6-foot-1, 223-pound Washington joined the NFL as a seventh-round draft choice by Detroit in 2016 and spent his first two NFL seasons with the Lions.
