Jets up contract offer to RB Leon Washington

New York Daily News - [Full Article]

When the Jets made their initial contract proposal to RB Leon Washington, believed to be around $2 million per year, he found it so insulting that he skipped some of the offseason workouts.
They've increased their offer considerably. According to sources, the Jets have an offer on the table that averages $4.5 million a year. Washington is believed to be seeking $6 million per year. Thing is, if the Jets go higher than $5million, they'd be paying him more than Thomas Jones, the starting tailback.
Washington is due to make $535,000 this season. The two sides continue to talk, although nothing appears imminent.
