Report: Leon Washington Contracts Talks To Heat Up This Week
Posted by A. Greenbaum On July - 19 - 2009 Finally some good news, and it comes on a Sunday morning. With Training Camp looming, this is the big news we need. According to Michael Lombardi of National Football Post, the contract talks between Jets running back Leon Washington and the Jets are expected to heat up this week. Lombardi is highly connected in the league and usually has great insider info, which makes this exciting news. Here’s what Lombardi had to say:
Things are going to heat up this week with the Jets and running back Leon Washington. Washington does not want to hold out from camp, but he also wants to be compensated for his contributions to the team. He’s a huge part of the Jets’ offense, but like Laveranues Coles and Chris Baker last year, he feels he was promised a new deal. This needs to get resolved.
