Jets, RB Washington Not Negotiating Long-Term Deal

The Newark Star-Ledger says nothing is close between the Jets and Leon Washington on a new deal:

Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum didn’t exactly sound like a man who was going to sign Leon Washington to a new contract anytime soon in a radio interview Tuesday. Tannenbaum told WFAN 660 AM that “nothing is imminent” on a reworked deal for the explosive running back. “Leon’s a great player,” Tannenbaum said.

“I expect him to be here a long time. Nothing is imminent, but the lines of communication are open. I expect Leon to be here a long time. And I’m glad he’s a Jet.” Asked whether the team was currently negotiating with Washington’s agent, Tannenbaum said: “I wouldn’t say right now we are. We’ve had dialogue in the past. I’m always an optimistic person by nature. So we’ll where this thing goes. But I do expect Leon to e here for a long time. We have some challenges with the collective bargaining agreement. But Leon’s an important part of what Rex (Ryan), Woody (Johnson) and I believe in.”

    Mike Tannenbaum is a sniffer who never played wiffle ball (never mind football) in his life. Simply put, to say that he knows nothing is a compliment. If it wasn’t for a hostile coup against Terry Bradway, he would be lucky to have a job selling life insurance to people in nursing homes. How do you have a billion dollar team/business investment run by someone who knows NOTHING! They backed into the playoff as a one dimensional 500 team and it shows.
