Leon Washington

Postby joejlitz » Sun Apr 25, 2010 7:29 am

RENTON, Wash. -- Pete Carroll wasn't kidding when he said he wanted to resurrect the Seattle Seahawks with competition everywhere -- from anybody.

And he keeps bringing in familiar faces to do the pushing.

Seattle's new coach added sizzle to the final day of the NFL draft. He acquired LenDale White, his former USC rushing star who lost out to record-setting runner Chris Johnson in Tennessee, from the Titans on Saturday for draft picks. Two hours later, Carroll traded with the New York Jets for former All-Pro kick returner and recuperating running back Leon Washington, also for draft picks.

No, there's no such thing as too much competition in Carroll's Seahawks rebuilding plan.

"Too much competition?" Carroll said with a puzzled look. "No. No, this is good. It's the central theme in this program: to compete and battle."

Carroll said his two runners were "just a great one-two punch to add to our team."

They sure went after the RB spot. I thought Forsett and JJ were ok the problem was in the oline.

Leon Washington suiting up

Postby bungle613 » Thu Aug 19, 2010 10:18 pm

Leon Washington (leg) will make his preseason debut Saturday, but he'll be held out of the kicking game for the time being.

Coach Pete Carroll will let Washington get used to game speed again before throwing him to the wolves on returns. "He’s been banged around plenty of times here, been knocked off his feet and has been tackled plenty of times here," said Carroll. "He’s ready to go at this point."

Scary thing is he may be the best RB Seattle has.

Forsett is so yesterday's news:

Coach Pete Carroll is considering starting Leon Washington in Saturday night's third exhibition game against the Vikings.

Washington has come a long, long way since his 2009 compound leg fracture, and done it so impressively that he's a realistic candidate to emerge as the Seahawks' top option in the backfield. While it's not necessarily the case here, players that start the third preseason game are frequently starters in Week 1. Washington's ADP should begin to climb, while Justin Forsett's falls. Washington is healthy, and the most talented running back in Seattle.

Forsett is so yesterday's news:

I know...A guy that comes in, has 114 carries and averages 5.4 yards/carry on a struggling team is "so yesterday's news." Not to mention having great hands (41 receptions). :-b

Forsett has gotten a lot of publicity as a potential sleeper due to his late round availability and the chance to blow up. Last year's stats look good. This year's performance in camp and preseason games? Not as good as Washington. So, yeah. If Washington gets the bulk of the touches, that is in direct contrast to what everyone expected "yesterday" and means Forsett ain't worth the ADP he had been going at.

We'll see how it plays out...

And now this...

If the regular-season opener was today, Leon Washington would be the Seahawks kick returner, according to coach Pete Carroll.

Josh Wilson was ticketed for that role, but he was shipped to the Ravens on Tuesday. Washington will presumably handle kickoffs as well as punts with Justin Forsett working as his backup. Upgrade Washington in return yardage leagues, but it's a reminder that the Seahawks are going to go with a strict running back by committee approach. Feature backs rarely return kicks.
