Leon Washington expects to be a Jet for a long time

LeonWashington.jpgJudging by his spirits, Leon Washington is mentally over the gruesome-looking injury that ended his season.  And he’s making progress on his return to the field.

PFT spoke to Washington Thursday and he was in a great mood, fired up over Florida State’s recruiting class.  He showed no signs of a brace for his ankle and didn’t walk with a limp. 

He’ll start “impact drills” in a month and is hopeful to return to football activities at some point before training camp.  When he returns, he plans to still be a return man and active in the backfield.

“I just like having the ball in my hands, no matter how it gets there,” Washington said.

He gave credit to the Jets trainers for getting him ahead of schedule as he recovers.   Washington is also not sweating his uncertain contract situation.  His agent has been in touch with the Jets of late.

“They want me to be a Jet, and I want to be a Jet. . . . No matter what, I think I’ll be a Jet for a long time.”

    He just proved himself to be one classy individual and with Green in that backfield they are going to be dangerous for years to come.

    Certainly wouldn’t have hurt their cause against the Colts any to have had this guy in the backfield. Still may not have been enough, but this guy got game.

    thats if jones is back, my guess, they’ll save their money for elsewhere and go with leon and shonn in the backfield

    Gotta love Neon Leon, he’s a class act, works hard, and is electric when he touches the ball. Lets just hope he heals and is back to where he was before the injury, as he’s fun to watch.

    Kris Jenkins is healing well, Leon Washington is also getting ready to return. Both are classy guys and incredible in their roles on the field.
    No where but up, Jets fans. It’s only getting better!!!
