Rex Disappointed by Washington’s Absence

Posted by Eric Allen on March 25, 2010 – 2:54 pm

Rex Ryan was in good spirits today as the Jets formally announced their “Hard Knocks” collaboration with HBO Sports and NFL Films. But Ryan, slimmed down after his recent lap-band surgery, was clearly miffed regarding the absence of Leon Washington from the team’s voluntary workout program.

“We have the No. 1 facilities in the country, we have a great medical staff, a great medical team and we have the best strength coach in the country. Leon knows this and that’s what’s disappointing,” said Ryan when writers huddled around the head coach. “Wherever he’s at might be good, but it’s not the best. I want what’s best for him and the New York Jets and this is a time there’s team building. This guy is a great young man — I love Leon — but it’s still disappointing he’s not here.”

Washington, who suffered a compound fracture of the tibia and fibula last October, is a restricted free agent. He received a second-round tender from the Green & White but hasn’t signed his contract. He is free to sign an offer sheet with another club and the Jets would have a week to match or receive a second-round pick in April’s draft as compensation.

“When we put our tenders out there, that’s when he left. And he was doing phenomenal,” Ryan said of Washington’s rehabilitation. “This guy was working his tail off just like we all knew Leon would do and he was getting better. He’s getting close to really being back. That’s why I hate to see him not take advantage of what we have here.”

Earlier this week, Ryan said he envisioned Washington being "a third-down back and Pro Bowl returner” for the Jets in 2010. And he stood by those comments today, indicating that it should no way be seen as a slight.

“Do we expect him to come back from the surgery? Yeah. And you’re going to put him in there instead of Shonn Greene and LaDainian Tomlinson? Maybe you would, but I’m not comfortable with that,” he said. “Let’s see where he’s at. I’m not just going to give him the ball 20 times a game coming off of that. He has to be ready to take that kind of role. If he’s ready to take an expanded role, then obviously we can see that. Third down is the most important down you have on offense and that would be an ideal situation for him. We have three great backs.”

The Jets most recently added the NFL’s eighth all-time rusher to that backfield in LaDainian Tomlinson. While Ryan and the league’s top-ranked defense made LT a non-factor (15 touches, 24 yards) in the Jets’ divisional playoff win over the Chargers, he still feels Tomlinson has plenty of good football left in him.

“We had eight guys down in the box every snap when he was in there, so maybe that’s one thing. We had to cover him with a guy-and-a-half every time, so we were never going to solo him,” he said of locking up LT. “He might have not run the ball very well — well, I hope not. We had everybody keying him.”

The Jets also quietly made another key move last week, signing ageless FB Tony Richardson for one more year.

“He’s here for all the right reasons,” Ryan said. “He loves it here, he’s still a very productive player and he’s chasing something that is hard to get.”

Rex isn’t entirely closing the book on either K Jay Feely or DE Marques Douglas, but there is a very real possibility that both players will be elsewhere in the fall.

“We’re always open to any situation but right now we have Nick Folk and we’re happy to have him. You guys know how I felt about Jay and feel about Jay,” said Ryan. “ I think he’s a tremendous kicker, a tremendous person, and we’ll see what happens.”

Marques, said the coach, "probably has one or two years left but if he can get a bid deal for somewhere else, he has my blessing.”

    EA, Douglas really played well last year. But with the play of Devito last year i think they will be ok. Plus i think they are getting ready to draft a DL early anyway. Surprised about Douglas because he was one of Rex’s guys. If Folk returns to his Pro Bowl form then they will be fine. It sure sounds like Leon’s return to the Jets is not looking good. Just hope he heals 110% and is better than he was before. EA, When is the RFA signing period over? GO JETS!!!!

  2. By Eric Allen on Mar 25, 2010 | Reply

    Ira, the deadline for an RFA to sign an offer sheet with a new team is April 15 and the deadline for the player’s old team to exercise its right of first refusal on an April 15 offer sheet is April 21.

    I think we would be smart to bring Jay Feely back. He had a great year last year and he is a good team player. Folk is inconsistant and he would worry me in bad weather, plus he is a Wildcat, I’m in Sun Devil country.

  5. By Eric Allen on Mar 25, 2010 | Reply

    Irish Jet, on the roster now, Mike DeVito, Ropati Pitoitua and the just-signed Rodrique Wright are candidates to play at Marques Douglas’ position if Marques doesn’t re-sign. And another few players should arrive, in the draft and as undrafted FAs.

    I like hearing Rex say what a lot of us have been saying — if Leon’s back at full strength, great, he’ll be used like he always was or more. If he’s not, you got to play it step-by-step. You can’t assume anything one way or another. But as for Leon himself, he’s made some, er, interesting choices. He asked for way too much money. He turned down an extremely generous deal. Now he’s rehabbing on his own. I love Leon but if BM or BE made these moves, people on this site would call them headcases.

    If we lose leon washington thats just a mistake, hes one of the best change of pace backs. Hes a threat as a receiver out of the backfield, as well as a punt/kick returner, and on screen plays especially. Lets say hes back to 100% of what he was before he was injured, i wouldnt want him to end up in new england or miami or something like that. Besides, hes been my favorite jet for a while now…team wouldnt be the same to me without him!

    What are the chances of having Gholston at DE. That’s where he played in college, and it seems that he isn’t playing anywhere else on D. His Speed and incredible strength maybe a good addition to the D-line. It’s a shame that now his 3rd year in the league he’s still not being a big impact to our defense… What do you think Randy?

  9. By steve on Mar 25, 2010 | Reply

    I didnt pay much attention last offseason, so i guess if i had i wouldve known better, but I honestly didnt think LW was like that. ur making more than a lot of people do in ten years, being generous, and he complains about his salary. He just came off of an injury that might ruin his career, y should the jets offer him big money? The guys a great player, but if cash is all he cares about, then He’ll end up making the same mistake that TJ did, choosing money over a ring.

    I hope this Hard Knocks Program doesn’t become a distraction to the players as they get ready for the upcoming season. What is Leon’s thinking process in not attending the teams off season conditioning program? Or should I say his agent’s thought process? Does anyone know if Leon has scheduled any visits with any other club or if any club has expressed an interest in Leon? I sure hope the Jets resign PK Feely and DE Douglas, both were big contributors last season.

  11. By sally on Mar 25, 2010 | Reply

    Does Rex realize what a fan favorite Leon is? I was at the last game where they honored the heroes of the meadowlands, and Leon got one of the biggest cheers from the crowd.

    It would be a shame to not take that into consideration. I know this is a business, but we give our heart to the team and the players are a part of that.

    Leon is also a great character guy! I really hope they can work something out. He is also very exciting to watch on the field. It would be a mistake to lose Leon.

  12. By John on Mar 25, 2010 | Reply

    I think they need to bring back Feely without a doubt. Douglas will be replace with someone from the drafts. And I think Leon Washington is not going to be back in NY if washington can’t find a new team I think Jets will release him.

    I just dont want to get to cocky and happy with this “CUT YOU HIGH AND DRY” philosophy that we have been picking up here lately. We have to show some type of loyalty to the players so they could put out some points, but lately we have been making moves, but as in T. Jones I really dont think we should play that kind of hand again, he was a motivator not just by mouth but by action and preparation. You cant kill morale and expect to win a championship, it just doesn’t work……!!!!PEACE

  15. By scjoe on Mar 25, 2010 | Reply

    I understand where Rex is coming from re: Leon, but technically he is not under contract, so cut him a little slack. I hope it works out for Leon remaining a Jet, but if not, that #2 would be a really welcoming pick. As for Feely, it seems like a win-win. If he don’t sign elsewhere that leaves the door open for a return, if he does sign elsewhere, we should finally get one of those compensatory picks in 2011 for losing a UFA. Isn’t that correct Randy?

    Ira,what do we need Bulger for? Clemens is the ideal back up for us,he knows our offense better than anyone and no one is gonna give us anything for him.He knows he’s gonna be a decently paid backup on a great team for the rest of his career.He never rocked the boat for a reason,he has nowhere else to go.He has a pretty stable job for a long time.Ainge is the one I think will draw nice interest after the preseason.I think he has MAJOR potential to be really good.Add Oconnal & we are set at QB

  17. By uncle joe on Mar 25, 2010 | Reply

    I think this DL Aurthur Jones from I think Suracuse might end up being the pick at 29 if he checks out medically.He was projected as the 3rd best 3-4 End after Suh & Mcoy before he got hurt.I still think trade out of round one can get us extra depth & still land a top player.I’m still not ruling out CB Mcourty,especially if Leon is gone,he can return,Rex loves DBs and with WR Gonzales coming back the Colts will be going 4 wideouts this year.One of our CBs get hurt we are in trouble.

  18. By uncle joe on Mar 25, 2010 | Reply

    I mean think about it,everytime Rex’s defense fails is when he loses secondary players,he missed going to the Supe with Balt because of DB injuries & then with us the next year.He can make do with all other positions(just look at Jenkins).Plus Ozzy told Tanny to be prepaired to get Rex alot of Corners and Tannenbaum just said in an interview that if we didn’t get Cromartie he was going CB at 29,SMOKESCREEN,Tanny wouldn’t admit to that for no reason.

    I would love for washington to come back. BUT if we could get a 2nd pick for him it will HELP us fill in LIKE a GREAT BACKUP QB. Iam sorry but we seen that mr clemens is not reliable on sundays. Maybe for practice but serious.
    we have to protect or #6. He gets hurt and then what? here comes our nightmare.How trading for MACnabb? He can be backup for atleast one year then trade him again. BUT if we gonna make a RUN at SB..we need this.
    I love MR REX.. but sometimes he makes teams wanna hurt #6

    I am not sure what is going on with Jay Feeley and James Dearth…both the long snapper and the Place Kicker unsigned and maybe not returning…does this say something about the Jets confidence in these guys?(Those one or two games where Feeley and had problems – on of them in the AFC Championship?) Nick Folk? after the very shaky year he had with The Cowboys? I don’t get it.

    Also, It looks like Leon wants to go somewhere else… This holding out tactic of his is sure gonna get that to happen.

  21. By Eric Allen on Mar 26, 2010 | Reply

    scjoe, a team has to lose more UFAs than it signs, then the NFL calculates how many compensatory draft picks that team should receive. Losing a UFA placekicker would be only one of several deals that could lead to the Jets being awarded a 2011 compensatory pick or picks.

  22. By Jets Fan Since '64 Tom on Mar 26, 2010 | Reply

    Sally, let me offer you some thoughts on fan favorites in football. In a word, they’re replaced pretty easily. Between the speed with which college players adjust to the NFL these days, free agency, and a system in which teams can turn themselves around almost overnight (i.e. 2008 Miami), it’s not like the old days. Leon was a fan favorite when he played. If he can’t play this year, no one on this site will just mourn him until he can, they’ll be up in arms that we didn’t find his replacement.

    Once again Leon’s agent has taken down the wrong road. He had a good contract offer last year didn’t take it got hurt and lost boat loads of money. Now this guy pulls him out of the Voluntee workouts. For the life of me I don’t know why he didn’t fire this guy. You know if he is healthly the Jets will take care of him just stupid!!

    From human standpoint I can understand Leon’s hold-out and distancing himself. From a professional standpoint, it is silly. Don’t get under your coach’s skin coz he holds your career in his hands. These tactics don’t impress any other team either.

    Washington should wind up with the Jets. Last season his agent was looking for a contract similar to what TJ had but look TJ’s build and Washingtons build. TJ BIG, thick legs, Washington thin legs. Factor in the broken bone ,no way I would expect any team to give him a contract as if he was an everydown back. Feely shold be back as well, even with schedule jets best chance to get to afc champion game

  27. By Hogan on Mar 26, 2010 | Reply

    Not sighning Feeley is the worst move so far. Folk is not dependable. Remember Feeley punting? How many PK do that? If Leon wants out he will get it. Rex seems to get rid of anyone that does not want to be here-Baker,LC,Rhodes. I love Leon but a 2nd rnder would be OK. Def go DL with #29,or trade down, get a 3rd.

    FIRST we need Washington on the Jets, he is the number 1 guy for running on the offense and special-teams. SECOND we need another back-up QB, we’ve seen Clemens and no one liked his performance. THIRD another WR is needed. Not a lot is need but Washington signed!, another WR, and a reliable back-up QB. I am excited for this 2010 season, Rex is doing great with the team and lets go GREEN!!!!!

    If the jets are still looking for a back later in draft watch out for mcknight. teammate of Sanchez at USC and jets are not mentioning him.Elusive, fast, not a lot of wear on the tire.but a underachiever at USC. could be a tempting pick.

    Jonathan F., RIGHT NOW Leon isn’t the number 1 guy running, etc., he’s nothing more than a huge question mark. I don’t get why some folks don’t understand this. Vincent, I just said the same thing you say here about these tactics Leon’s pulling, all they do is make him look like a desperate man who’s way over-estimating his own worth. I’m starting to think he realizes that between LT and the draft, he’s never going to get that many touches on the Jets and wants out, which would be fine with me.

    Why is it guys are so worried about what a guy is making? Do the owners really care about the fans? When is the last time Ticket prices were lowered because the owners wanted to give the fans a break? too bad for a guy like Leon who took a gamble on bad advice I might add and now is in a terrible position. He s basically at the teams mercy and there is no loyalty in sports. Hate to say it but if you noticed the tone of the GM Leon is gone and by drawing that line in the sand they wont get a #2

    I know that LT and Greene are great backs but Leon has great speed and catches very well. He also gains big yards with his quickness. Please sign him if he is health I feel we can be unstoppable.

    I wouldn’t show either. Rex has shown a blatant disrespect for Jets veterans from the get go. Everyone is talking up Sanchez, but feels we need a great backup QB as a need. Doesn’t make sense to me. I am ready to see Carlos Dunlap in green and white.. Great pick if he’s there. Don’t forget about Alexander from Mizzou!

    A lot of people crying about the business side of things here at the NY Jets. I am the biggest Leon(and Coles) fan. But you cant let your personal feelings get caught up in picking your team. If you remember playing sports and picking teams in the schoolyard, you would pick the best player first over your best friend(unless he was the best player). That is only magnified in pro sports and if you are crying about your favorite player going to another team, wish him well and follow him there.

    I love LW & would love to see him get a SB ring with Da Jets but I’ve watched better backs than him leave for greener pastures. (John Riggins should have retired in green & white.) Truth is, Brad Smith did a great job of providing a 3rd down change of pace during last season’s playoff drive. Woodhead could be a special scatback with his quickness & small size – they’d probably mistake him for Faneca’s leg. LW needs to come to his senses, his best shot at a ring is with Da Jets. J-E-T-S JETS etc

    Row, my friend meet Ralph Kiner once. Kiner told him a story about asking for a raise after leading the NL in home runs year after year. The PIT owner asked him how many World Series he’d won, Kiner said none. The owner asked him why he then thought he deserved a raise. I doubt I could be that ruthless, but this is the real world. Rex doesn’t have to respect a single Jet until he wins a Super Bowl and if Rex does, that’s a bonus. He sure doesn’t have to respect anybody who’s not doing the job.

    This is the second straight year Leon is being a baby. Forget about him and move on. Take the second round pick and draft a slot receiver or more defense. Brad Smith did a great job returning kickoffs. Shone Green is going to be the man and LT can certainly help.

    Hey Randy, I have watched Armanti Edwards play several times, as I lived in Boone NC. The kid single-handedly brought a no-name sports college into the national spotlight. The patriot, dolphins, and bills are working him out. Do you think he would be a threat in the backfield with Brad Smith, in the slot, and on ST? He’s projected of going in the 4-5 Rnd, do you think he will last this long, and do the Jets have a need, or a chance to get a player like this?

  41. By prcool on Mar 28, 2010 | Reply

    Sorry,Randy, but I left the most important point I had to make out of my post. The Jets need a #2 quarterback, as it doesn’t look like they’re trying to get a veteran for Sanchez to understudy. Could Armanti Edwards eventually fill that roster spot and win with his intelligence and his legs if Sanchez were to miss any games?

  42. By Vincent on Mar 28, 2010 | Reply

    Row: Rex doesn’t have any respect for veterans…what?? Rex is the manager (coach) of a company (NYJets) producing a product (football team) for entertainment (football). The standard by which his success is based is winning SBs. Respect for veterans is irrelevant. I don’t know ANY organization where the top brass need to respect a long serving employee unless they are team players and outstanding performers. So far Leon has failed one of these and the second is unknown after the injury.

I think its very stupid to lose him. He makes a great addition and receiver for sanchez. Not to mention great character and def one of my favorites :) hopefully everything falls into place and next season will be great! GO JETS

LW refused a great offer and later got hurt. read his agents statement CAREFULLY – THEY have weeks to draw intrest, why WE havent signed – the guy is thinking about his cut and misguiding Leon.

    Leon cant run yet – HELLO! – nobody knows if he will be okay – he broke both bones badly & unless he is healthy you cant expect anyone to pay what hes asking. Some players who left did so to get BIG deals elsewhere instead of decent money in NY, Coles and Baker are both already looking for new teams again. Feeley & Douglas are using last yr as grounds to get big deals also. Seems to me the guys who are potentually leaving are just the ones puting $ b4 the team,except Kerry whos poor play did it.

    Rickie New York, those are the best posts of the day in my view. Remember the dire predictions, even from the astute Ira, about how we’d suffer by losing Baker? Funny how nobody mentions that now. And what is up with this constant talk of Leon as if he’s perfectly healthy? His whole game is speed and no one knows if he’ll ever have any again! Where do he and his numbskull agent get off playing hard to get? And why doesn’t this incredibly bad attitude on his part speak to alleged Jets fans?

    Just wanted to put my 2 cents in, im liking the moves thus far in the off season. if rex can (im sure he will) train cromartie to be as dangerous as revis then that opens up so much the inside can do as the #1and #2 recievers will be locked down. we need a pass rushing DE bad we have a great def but barely any sacks. y not move gholston down to the line and see what he can do. as for recievers we do need a #2 but not a slot we have a very ghostly talented WR/RB in danny woodhead utilize him!

    I am upset we don’t have Washington back but at the same time this is a bad injury he had. There isn’t the slightest clue if he is going to be healed and as fast as he was before he got hurt. But on the contrary he could be just as explosive as he ever was. I hope he signs the tender. I think the Jets will let another team make an offer then counter it. But who knows. I would like to see him back ont he field either way. Leon is a great player. Hope he comes back to the green and white.

    the jets will not make a counter offer for Leon as no other team will try to pick him up. Would you sign him after that injury i don`t think so other teams would be more inclined to wait untill next year when they have seen he is back to his best and as one coach said there is plenty of depth in this years draft. Dont get me wrong leon was and is one of my favourite players who can forget that HIT he put on channing crowder in our first round against the dolphins last year it was a classic

Pick up mcnabb, bring TJ back, LT washed up ??? amazing year for TJ yehh but who was it that rushed for 100 plus yds in 2 of our 3 playoff games and 50 plus against the colts before he was injured ? Thats right it was the lightning fast TANK that is SHONN GREEN THE MACHINE !!!!!!!!! Mcnabb still wants to start so no dice and TJ should be sending our O line some Please come join me emails as they remain the heart of the ofence

    “JesseBrazee” just you watch as LT lights up D`s this season on thirs downs and the ocasional 1st and 2nd the whole idea is that we now have a rushing game for all types of defences two backs of different styles that make defences take note they are on the field and opens up the pass game for THE SANCHISE and if leon comes back great kr pr duties taken care of . SGREENMACHINE 100 plus yds against 2 playoff teams NEED I SAY MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! O LINE . there i did it NYJ2DAY

    I’m also a huge Rex Ryan fan, but I know Leon deserves better. Forget business, he’s a big-time player and a true JET who should have been signed long ago. I don’t blame Leon, I’d feel dissed too, but I’m hoping he comes back. GET THE DAMN DEAL DONE!
