Leon Washington And The BucsMarch 13th, 2013
When Joe learned that stud return specialist and talented running back Leon Washington was let loose by the Seahawks after Seattle acquired headache Percy Harvin, Joe right away thought Washington would be a nice pick up for the Bucs. Tampa Bay is so devoid of return help they turned to ineffective Arrelious Benn and never used Michael Smith past opening day.
It seems Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik was reading Joe’s mind.
Appearing on “The Opening Drive” this morning, heard exclusively on SiriusXM NFL Radio, co-hosted by Ross Tucker and Derrick Brooks, Washington said the Bucs tried to swing a trade with Seattle for his services, but instead, Seattle passed and released him.
Washington noted how he likes Tampa Bay and could easily see him on a Bucs roster. Washington averaged 29 yards per kick return last season.
Stay tuned. If Dominik inquired about a trade for Washington, that means there is interest and he’s walking the streets now. Washington would be a nice addition.
