Washington was a first-round draft pick in 2005 that the Raiders had traded from No. 26 to No. 23 to draft. He lost his starting job to Stanford Routt last season and was further pushed into the background with the trade for Pro Bowl cornerback DeAngelo Hall.
When the Raiders brought out Hall for an interview session Thursday, the new acquisition was detailing the strengths of the Raiders secondary and never mentioned Washington, who the club has been actively shopping.
Washington was involved in a domestic disturbance in the offseason which will require counseling.
