With Jets training camp set to open Friday morning (vets report Thursday), the Jets are trying to hammer out a contract extension for RB Leon Washington. Washington's Virginia-based agent, Alvin Keels, is coming up tomorrow to have a face-to-face with GM Mike Tannenbaum.
A lot of times, when an agent flies into town, it means they're ready to put the finishing touches on a deal. I wouldn't read that much into this situation. It also could mean this is a last-ditch effort by both sides to get something done before camp. Washington is threatening a camp holdout.
