Jets RB/KR Washington Looking for More Money

The New York Daily News is reporting that Jets RB/KR Leon Washington is looking for more money. Here is the report from today’s paper:

Leon Washington sounded like an agent – his own agent. The Jets’ all-purpose dynamo, entering the final year of his original contract, is seeking a long-term extension. Washington didn’t say how much he wants, but it’s probably safe to assume that anybody who compares himself to Hall of Famer Gale Sayers is looking for mega bucks. “I’m trying to revolutionize the game, trying to take it to the next level like the guys back in the day, like a Dave Meggett or a Gale Sayers,” he said Thursday at the team’s offseason program. “They did so much and did it so well. I want to bring that style back at a high level. In my opinion, that, plus the leadership I give in the locker room, is priceless.” The Jets, too, would like to hammer out a new deal by the start of the season. Washington is believed to be seeking at least $4 million a year. He is due to make $535,000 in 2009.
