Found September 05, 2013 on Pro Sports Daily:
The New York Jets are showing interest in an old favorite free-agent kickoff returner Leon Washington a league source confirmed. Washington released by the New England Patriots in the final cut-down also has drawn interest from the Giants. He worked out for them Tuesday. After cutting Joe McKnight whom they drafted in 2010 to replace Washington the Jets may be looking for a new kickoff returner. Right now the job probably belongs to Clyde Gates. Washington 31 made the Pro Bowl last season with a 29.0 average and one touchdown. He also could be a change-of-back back and a strong locker-room presence. The Jets have three backs on the roster plus the suspended Mike Goodson. General manager John Idzik was a Seahawks executive during Washington's three-year run in Seattle. The Jets could wait until after Week 1 to make a move on Washington. As a vested veteran his salary wouldn't be guaranteed if he signs after the first game.
