In an email interview with the NY Daily News, the agent for Jets RB Leon Washington explained his client's absence from the start of the offseason conditioning program and said other teams are interested in acquiring his services.
"However, we have some interest out there in Leon. Truth of the matter is, if a team is going to give up a second-round pick, it would probably get done closer to the April 15th deadline vs. right now. He will be four weeks further along in his rehab than he is right now. It only makes sense from a business standpoint.”
