Wouldn't shock me to see a pick like Kerwynn Williams as a RB#3/KR/PR in place of Washington.



^ I'd sign up for that

Leon was great on and off the field for us. I really hope we don't cut him but rather trade him to get something back. If we cut him there's a high % that he will end up in SF :/


Based on what? They have Tedd Ginn...

If the running game is reduced to the point the Lynch gets about 280 carries instead of the 315 he did last year, I have little problem keeping Washington. I cant see us rushing 55% of the time this next year, probably pretty close to 50/50.

Still, if Lynch misses games, I think we'll be in trouble with Washington on the RB depth chart. Perhaps they plan on using Harvin on the ground as well.


havent you ever heard of Robert Turbin ?

My gut feeling. He would want to stick it to the hawks.

Ted Ginn is also gonna test the FA market

No way.

Leon helps bigtime with field position.

Besides, why would we want to take a weapon we traded for that we need to stretch the field, and throw him into kick returns to assure he gets hurt and does not produce for us? Especially considering the guy has a history of injuries.

No thank you. We need him on passing downs.


I agree 100%. Leon Washington was a top 3 returner last year. I get that this board is hyped for Percy Harvin but there is so many questions.

Leon Washington is underrated imo.

I would hate to see Leon go. He's a class act and a key special teams performer. He's also very tight with the guys in the locker room and is a favorite of his teammates.

But with that said, on paper it makes all the sense in the world to see what you can get for him.

Yeah, having the Turbine isn't going to help if Lynch misses games to injury or a conviction in his court case. Washington is little threat running the ball and is advanced in age. So depending on him to be a number two back behind Turbin is unreaslistic. There is a reason to carry a 3rd down back capable of shouldering a #2 back load, else the running game falters with Lynch gone. This is why most teams carry a KR specialist among the WRs or DBs where the depth pool is larger to protect them in case of injury.

I think it depends on what Harvins number is and how much more they spend in FA to sign a DL.

Why would he want to stick it to the team that rescued him from the Jets when everyone thought he was done because of his brutal broken leg? Seattle resurrected his marketability.

I hope not, but I see him as gone. Haven't they announced that he is available,
trying to get something rather than just cutting him?

Leon brings value beyond his on the field play, though that is very good.
He is a leader in the locker room and an enthusiastic one on the sidelines.

Leon was 3rd in the NFL last year in KO return average. I've said it before, but it's hard to justify trying to get the top two guys, or expecting a rookie to come in, and beat the 3rd guy who's already on your team.

We have bigger holes, and guys making more money to worry about. Leon will stay this year at least.

If he's only a return specialist next year, maybe they restructure him, but even at 3.5 million, he's not that expensive for what he brings to the team.

Any speculation after this year is going to be contingent upon how much money we give Harvin.

well this thread is closed.

Just waiting for the front office to call and offer a job. LOL

If coach only would have put me in in the 4th quarter we would have won state!
