Washington Looking For a “Fair Market Deal” Contract

As training camp gets closer and closer, the talk continues to be about the future of running back Leon Washington and if he’ll be in camp or not. Pro Football Weekly reports that Washington appears to have no issues holding out if he doesn’t get a deal:

Leon Washington appears willing to stage a training-camp holdout if the Jets don’t offer him a “fair market deal,” as the multi-threat running back puts it. The way we hear it, much of the problem is that Washington wants to be paid as one of the league’s elite backs, whereas the Jets believe a backup doesn’t merit that type of money, regardless of how dangerous he is with the ball.

    I have to be on the Jets side if Leon holds out for #1 bellcow money. He’s a real good player but not the #1 bellcow. This should get done for about $4 million per year. The Jets should be careful about front loading a contract so they don’t get into the TJ dilema a couple years down the road.
