Leon Expected to Sign Tender

According to Dennis Waszak, Jr., Leon is on his way to Florham Park and will sign his tender contract tomorrow:

NEW YORK (AP)—Running back Leon Washington, a restricted free agent recovering from a broken right leg, will sign his tender contract offer with the New York Jets, two people familiar with the deal told The Associated Press on Wednesday night.

Washington was traveling from his home in Florida to New Jersey on Wednesday night and planned to sign Thursday morning. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal had not yet been signed.

Washington, a fourth-round pick in 2006, received a second-round tender last month worth $1.759 million.

This was pretty much bound to happen, as there was little to no interest in the injured former Pro Bowler from other teams.  So what do you think, folks?  Will we be seeing Little Leon on "Hard Knocks", or will the Jets ship him somewhere else by then?
