Looks like Leon took about a $1M pay cut by asking to be released instead of being traded to the Bucs.
He signed for one year at $1.5M with the Pats and I believe his 2013 salary under his old contract was $2.5M.
Strange. He either really, really didn't want to play for the Bucs or something else went on like the Bucs wanted to offload some salary too in the trade with us.
Or Leon really, really wants to stay with a winning organization and have a shot at the Super Bowl. It's a long step down from Seattle to Tampa. It's just a step over to New England.
Jets fans are gonna cringe when he takes one back against them.
