The Patriots may have lost one of their best play makers in Wes Welker, but they made up for it today when they signed one of the most electrifying return men/running backs in the game--Leon Washington.

Washington let the cat out of the proverbial bag himself with this tweet and Instagram pic.
The move comes a day after losing Welker to the Denver Broncos and adding Danny Amendola.
New England has been on of those teams that went with the running back byÂ committeeÂ approach in recent years, partially because they focused on the Tom Brady-led passing attack and didn't need it and partially because they didn't have a feature back to plug into the role.
Stevan Ridley seemed to latch onto the role of feature running back last season, but with Washington's explosiveness in the open-field it would not be surprising to seem him worked into the backfield rotation some.
