I like Leon Washington, I really do. But he doesn’t deserve the money that he’s demanding. Leon Washington was a key contributor to the Jets last year — this is clear. Is he underpaid in the final year of his rookie contract? Yes, he’s scheduled to earn only $535,000 as a base salary next year. However, the Jets should not yield to his demands to around $6 million per year.
WHO IS LEON WASHINGTON?
Last year, Leon Washington set the Jets single season record for all-purpose yardage. He’s proven to be an extremely versatile player as a change of pace back and a returner. There’s no denying that Little Leon is a key contributor to the Jets offensive attack. However, I don’t think he’s established himself as a premier back in this league as his salary demands might indicate.
