The Patriots like go-go-gadget players, so it only makes sense that Leon Washington is on their radar. The running back, who was cut by the Seahawks this week, has shown he can run, play receiver, catch passes out of the backfield and return both punts and kickoffs. That’s exactly what the Patriots need, especially with Wes Welker now gone. Washington is set to visit the Patriots on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Former Seahawks and Jets RB Leon Washington is visiting the Patriots today.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 14, 2013 Washington has spent seven years in the NFL, playing with the Jets through 2009 and with the Seahawks since then.
