Toledoan Nate Washington is perhaps the most unlikeliest NFL veteran on the Tennessee Titans roster.

Washington, a former standout at Tiffin University and Scott High, is entering his ninth season in the NFL and fifth with the Titans. With career totals of 313 catches for 4,730 yards, including 35 touchdowns, Washington isn't planning on slowing down as he nears 30 years of age later this month.

Washington was an undrafted free agent in 2005 and signed with Pittsburgh, where he won two Super Bowls in four seasons. He spent the past offseason reshaping his body with plans of having as good a season as a receiver as any he's had in the past.
