The Jets are showing interest in free agent RB/KR Leon Washington.

The Jets cut Joe McKnight and currently only have three running backs on the roster (Mike Goodson is suspended four games). Washington spent 2006-09 with the Jets, bringing back four kickoffs for touchdowns and adding 493 touches from scrimmage. He went to the Pro Bowl while with the Seahawks last year. Washington worked out for the Giants Tuesday.

Patriots released RB/KR Leon Washington.

They're eating a $360,000 signing bonus. Washington is 31 years old now, and the Patriots clearly believe he's lost a step. He also lost a fumble in New England's preseason finale. Washington will probably get one more look from an NFL team, but his career looks headed the way of Josh Cribbs'.

Free agent KR/RB Leon Washington will visit the Patriots Thursday.

The Pats were also linked to Josh Cribbs before he settled in Arizona, so it appears they're looking to move on from track star Jeff Demps. Washington ranked second in the league in kickoff return average last season at 29.0 yards.

The Bucs have "been in contact" with free agent KR/RB Leon Washington, but "no deal is imminent."

The Bucs reportedly considered trading for Washington before he was released by the Seahawks, and remain interested. He'd provide a serious return threat for a team that lacked one in 2012.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Seahawks are shopping KR/RB Leon Washington.

We could see this coming after the acquisition of Percy Harvin, who is just as potent in the return game. Washington has a $2.875 million cap number, and that's too expensive for a No. 3 running back who won't be used on returns. Washington, 30, finished second in the NFL with his 29.0 YPR average on kickoffs in 2012. He might be able to fetch a late-round pick.

Leon Washington is expected to serve as the Seahawks' undisputed change-of-pace back.

Marshawn Lynch and rookie Robert Turbin are both early-down pounders. With Justin Forsett gone, Washington has at least the third-down job to himself. He's averaged an impressive 4.7 yards per carry during his six-year career.
