New England Patriots Have Released RB/KR Leon Washington

The New England Patriots have released KR/RB Leon Washington today. Washington is a strong return man on special teams and could immediately help out a team in need of a boost in that department. He is a good receiver out of the backfield also and should draw a lot of interest around the league. He couldn’t cut the Patriots roster, but there are other teams that can find a good use for Washington’s skill set.

He can help in punt returns and in kickoff returns. He has 8 kickoff returns for touchdowns in his career. Someone will want a new kickoff returner on their roster. He will have on some new colors soon.
