Report: Leonhard Leaves Florham Park without a Contract
After making a splash early in free agency by signing linebacker Bart Scott and guard Brandon Moore, the Jets welcomed safety Jim Leonhard in for a visit. The former Raven has been high on the team’s wishlist and would provide the team a youthful boost in the secondary and as a kick returner. However, the National Football Post is reporting that Leonhard left the Jets’ facility in Florham Park, NJ, today without signing a contract.
Leonhard’s move does not rule out the possibility of him signing with the Jets, but it does not bode well for the team. Generally teams like to lock up players with contracts before they walk out the exit.
The National Football Post lists the Eagles as a potential suitor for Leonhard. Pro Bowl safety Brian Dawkins signed a five-year contract with the Broncos yesterday.
