I'm kind of curious to how they'd use Leon now. Didn't an article state that LT would substitute Greene on passing downs and certain 3rd down situations? Sooooo where exactly does Leon's role come in? After he is fully back and 100% healthy...are they going to go back to having him on PR/KR and a few touches on offense?
Now that LT is in the fold, what exactly is Leon Washingtons role?
Leon was ineffective early in the season on kickoffs due to the change in the rules.
Leon is 28 years old, coming off a devastating leg injury, if a team comes a calling offering a 2nd round pick, you take it & run.
Think of it this way:
Running backs available from 2-4th round
Maybe Jahvid Best?
Don't get me wrong, I love Leon! no homo! But:
His agents an *ss! & now he's trying to make the Jets look like jerks because they tendered him a 2nd round pick. This after this SCHMO turned down a very good contract that Tanny put together by getting greedy. A contract that Leon Washington will NEVER see written again by the Jets mind you.
Here's the bottom line: Jets went to the AFCCG with Leon watching the game. Could we have used him? sure, but if we can get a 2nd & trade back to recoup our 3rd round pick, we would be the envy of the draft my friends.
While the Pats are drafting for STARTERS! Jets are plucking BAP options with EVERYONE OF THEIR PICKS! for depth & future plug ins. I would miss Leon, but it really would be for the betterment of the organization to move him now if possible.
* While everyones reacting to my post, remember this, IF no one TRIES to sign Leon, it proves my theory because if Leon was tendered a 2nd round pick after 2008, he would be gone so fast your head would spin.
