From the Star-Ledger:
Jets running back Leon Washington's holdout lasted all of one day. Actually, it was less.
Washington, who is unhappy with his contract, reported to camp late Thursday night but he doesn't have the new deal he's seeking, according to a person with knowledge of the contract talks who spoke anonymously because he's not authorized to speak publicly.
It was believed that the two sides were close but talks have apparently hit a snag. It's unclear if the Washington camp has simply decided to put off talks and play or continue to negotiate.
Washington, who is earning $535,000 this season under his current contract, was to be fined $17,000 for each day out of camp.
I'll tell you exactly why Leon Washington decided to report. 17 grand isn't a drop in the bucket. Once he saw that, he hopped the first Greyhound to Cortland.
But the thought of Washington cutting off all negotiations with the Jets is scary. Don't let it happen, Tannenbaum!
