The Kansas City Chiefs have scheduled a workout with former Missouri football running back Derrick Washington, who played last season at Tuskegee.

Remember Derrick Washington? A few years ago he looked like a solid running back prospect out of Missouri before multiple legal issues forced him out at Missouri, into jail and eventually to Tuskegee, where he played last season. Per Tony Pauline, Washington will visit Kansas City.

Former Missouri running back Derrick Washington, who lit it up at Tuskegee last season, is visiting the Kansas City Chiefs and has a private workout scheduled with the New England Patriots. Washington was dominant during his Missouri days and looked like a prime NFL running back prospect before being sidelined with legal issues.

Interesting .... like many folks, I lost track of Washington after his legal issues -- assault charges -- rose. Apparently he had a solid season at Tuskegee this past season. Via NFL Draft Scout:

Washington was one of eight finalists for the Harlon Hill Trophy award, the Division II equivalent to the Heisman. The 6-foot, 215-pounder rushed for 1,679 yards and 14 touchdowns in his only season in a Golden Tigers' uniform and played in the inaugural Raycom College Football All-Star Classic in Montgomery back in January along with teammate and first-team all-conference defensive back William Buford.

Washington is listed at 6'0 and weighs 226 pounds.

We've been talking about who will play second fiddle to Jamaal Charles this season. Peyton Hillis left the Chiefs in free agency. Cyrus Gray and Shaun Draughn are both possibilities for that job. MNChiefsFan wrote a great piece on Gray, which you should read.
