3/11/2014 4:32:00 PM
Description: RB/KR Leon Washington re-signed with the Tennessee Titans.
Insight: Washington no longer has any fantasy value as he's only a special-team guy these days. He has one rush for one yard last season and zero receptions.
 
11/24/2013 1:59:00 PM
Description: The Patriots waived RB/KR Leon Washington Saturday in order to clear a roster spot for cornerback Justin Green.
Insight: Washington logged just one rushing attempt during his brief tenure with the Patriots. He may catch on elsewhere but it's highly unlikely that he would have any fantasy relevance with his new team.
 
9/7/2013 3:55:00 PM
Description: RB/KR Leon Washington, who was among the Patriots' final roster cuts a week ago, was re-signed by New England on Saturday.
Insight: We aren't sure whether he'll return punts or kickoffs or both, but he has returned eight kickoffs for touchdowns during his seven-year career.
 
9/1/2013 6:40:00 PM
Description: Leon Washington was among the Patriots' final roster cuts on Sunday.
Insight: It looked like Washington had the inside track to become New England's new kick returner but instead that honor will go to safety Devin McCourty. Washington has returned eight kicks for touchdowns in his seven-year career.
 
3/14/2013 7:39:00 PM
Description: It would appear that the Patriots have found their new return specialist. Leon Washington and New England have officially agreed to a one-year pact.
Insight: Washington tweeted a photo of himself wearing a Pats hat on his Twitter timeline. Washington represented the Seahawks in the Pro Bowl this past season. Julian Edelman was New England's primary kick returner during the 2012 campaign.
 
7/18/2012 11:04:00 AM
Description: Seahawks running back/special teamer Leon Washington could see a lot more action than expected if Marshawn Lynch's latest transgression results in a significant league suspension.
Insight: Washington averaged just 3.3 carries and 0.6 receptions per game from scrimmage last season. He also returned 41 punts (11.3 ypr) and 43 kickoffs (25.2 ypr). The additional workload if Lynch misses time should make Washington a fantasy-worthy starter in leagues which include return yardage points.
 
3/1/2011 4:14:00 PM
Description: The Seahawks have re-signed RB/ST Leon Washington to a four-year, $12.5 million contract. SOURCE: TWITTER
Insight: Washington did almost all of his damage on special teams, averaging 25.6 yards per kickoff return with three touchdowns, while averaging 11.3-yard average on punts. Washington is strictly valued in return leagues only.
 
9/27/2010 12:00:00 PM
Description: Washington had two kickoff return touchdowns in Seattle's win over San Diego on Sunday.
Insight: Unless your league counts return yardage, Washington is not worthy of a roster spot at this point. (RapidDraft.com)
 
8/23/2010 3:15:00 PM
Description: Seahawks.com reports head coach Pete Carroll is considering starting Washington against the Vikings on Saturday night.
Insight: Washington has made a nice recovery from last season's compound leg fracture, and could carve out a significant role for himself in the Seahawks' backfield. (Rapid Draft.com)
 
8/23/2010 12:18:00 PM
Description: There's a good chance that the Seahawks will start RB Leon Washington in Saturday's third exhibition game against the Vikings. SOURCE: SEAHAWKS.COM
Insight: Don't get too excited since the coaches have given both Julius Jones and Justin Forsett time to play with the first-team offense. Unless one of these guys gets hurt, this has committee written all over it.
 
8/19/2010 11:40:00 PM
Description: The Tacoma News Tribune reports Washington (leg) will make his preseason debut on Saturday, but will be held out of the kicking game for now.
Insight: Washington looks to be ready to go after suffering a compound leg fracture last season with the Jets. He should be in the mix for touches in the Seahawks' backfield. (Rapid Draft.com)
 
8/6/2010 11:34:00 AM
Description: The Seattle Post Intelligencer reports Washington (leg) saw his first action in team drills on Thursday.
Insight: Washington's role in the Seahawks' offense won't come to full light until he plays in some preseason games. (Rapid Draft.com)
 
7/14/2010 10:12:00 PM
Description: According to Seahawks' head coach Pete Carroll's Twitter feed, he expects Washington (leg) to "be practicing in camp."
Insight: Washington is recovering from a compound leg fracture last season, and may not quite be what he was, at least early in the season. That said, he could be worth a late-round flier on draft day if he is practicing in training camp. (SportsBuff.com)
 
7/14/2010 8:41:00 PM
Description: Seahawks coach Pete Carroll tweeted Wednesday that he expects Leon Washington (compound leg fracture) to "be practicing in camp." SOURCE: Pete Carroll via Twitter
Insight:
 
6/22/2010 11:49:00 PM
Description: The Associated Press reports Seahawks' head coach Pete Carroll said Washington (compound leg fracture) will be ready for training camp in late July.
Insight: Seattle will be careful with Washington, but it's a good sign that he may avoid the PUP list. He should be able to at least handle return duties early in the season, but exactly what his offensive role will be is unknown. (SportsBuff.com)
 
5/27/2010 2:50:00 PM
Description: The Tacoma News Tribune reports Seahawks' GM John Schneider could not rule out Washington (leg) possibly starting training camp on the PUP list.
Insight: If Washington has to start the regular season on the PUP list, he would be out for the first six games. That would obviously give a bump to LenDale White's fantasy value. (SportsBuff.com)
 
5/25/2010 10:18:00 AM
Description: The Associated Press reports Washingon's compound leg fracture "may have him out into training camp."
Insight: If Washington isn't ready to go for training camp, LenDale White could get an opportunity to be the Seahawks' primary RB. (SportsBuff.com)
 
5/11/2010 11:52:00 PM
Description: WKJR in Seattle reports Washington said his compound leg fracture is "90 percent healed."
Insight: Washington should be ready to go sometime during training camp. (SportsBuff.com)
 
4/29/2010 4:01:00 PM
Description: The Tacoma News Tribune reports Washington (leg) said he's running now and hopes to be ready for the start of training camp.
Insight: Washington suffered a broken leg as a NY Jet in 2009, but appears to be making nice progress in his recovery. He should fill a change-of-pace back/return man role in Seattle. (SportsBuff.com)
 
4/24/2010 10:12:00 PM
Description: The Seahawks acquired Washington and seventh round pick from the Jets for pick #138 in the 2010 NFL Draft
Insight: The Jets drafted RB Joe McKnight from USC, which appears to have made Washington expendable. His season ended early in 2009 due to a compound leg fracture. If healthy, he should compete with fellow newcomer LenDale White and Justin Forsett for playing time. (SportsBuff.com)
