Leon Washington spent the first four seasons of his career playing for the New York Jets. The #Jets are showing a lot of interest in Leon Washington. The New York Jets are showing interest in an old favorite, free-agent kickoff returner Leon Washington , a league source confirmed. The Jets could wait until after Week 1 to make a move on Washington. Now the Jets are looking at the possibility of bringing Washington back to the Big Apple. The Jets have three backs on the roster, plus the suspended Mike Goodson General manager John Idzik was a Seahawks executive during Washington's three-year run in Seattle. It is an interesting development and could indicate that Alex Green’s time with the team might not last long, but more likely that the team thinks they need to upgrade their kick return and third down capabilities.
