This could be a good sign for Jets fans anxious to see Washington signed in time for the start of camp on Friday. Typically a face-to-face meet like this would indicate a deal is near completion and the final details are being hammered out.
Of course, it could also be an indicator of a last ditched effort by all parties to get something done before Leon becomes a camp hold out. I think it’s clear no one, Jets fans least of all, wants to see this negotiation drag out through the preseason.
To quote Rich Cimini on the subject;
…if the Jets let this go until the regular season, and Washington has to play for his current salary ($535,000) … well, that would be wrong. I think the Jets know that, too.
I really hope the Jets get this deal done. I think keeping such a dynamic and electrifying player like Leon happy is extremely important. I think most of us know what kind of a drag it can be when you’re not happy at work. We all want this guy going out there happy and ready to kill it.
