Jets interested in possible Leon Washington reunion


Leon Washington spent the first four seasons of his career playing for the New York Jets.

Now the Jets are looking at the possibility of bringing Washington back to the Big Apple.

According to Rich Cimini of, Washington had a workout with the Jets on Tuesday. He had been among three running backs to workout for the New York Giants on Monday.

Washington started 13 games for the Jets in his first four seasons before suffering a broken leg in a game against the Oakland Raiders in 2009. He was traded to Seattle that offseason and spent the last three years with the Seahawks before being released in March.

Washington spent the offseason with the New England Patriots before being released on Sunday.

While teams are expressing interest in Washington, he may not find a new home until after this weekend. NFL contracts become fully guaranteed for players that are on the roster for Week 1 of the season. Veterans that have found themselves looking for work after final cuts have trouble finding a new team because teams don’t want to fully guarantee their contracts.

Washington will likely find a place to place before too long and it could be back where his career began, but he may have to wait a little while longer to get back to work.
