There's a small silver lining that accompanies the saga revolving around Leon Washington and Thomas Jones, the Jets' 2 RBs who are skipping the voluntary off-season training program activities because of their unhappiness with their respective contracts. It's giving the Jets the opportunity to get a good close look at Danny Woodhead, the guy who spent most of the time lined up in the backfield at RB during the Jets' OTA practice out at the Hangar yesterday. "Anytime you can get that experience, it's vital to you," said Woodhead, who's battled back from a serious left knee injury suffered during training camp last season. "Right now, I'm just trying to go with what I've got and you just work as hard as possible to get the system down to where I can just play fast all the time." But with the expected return of Washington and Thomas sometime in the coming weeks, and once 3rd-round pick Shonn Greene is signed and in camp, Woodhead will most likely be on the outside looking in. That's where a veteran like FB Tony Richardson comes into the picture.
