Top Remaining Free Agents for New York Jets

A week of furious activity for the New York Jets was probably completed last night, as the Jets finalized a deal with former Chargers safety Marcus Gilchrist. They now have an estimated $10-12 million of cap space left, per Jason at OverTheCap.com.

WATCH: Tennessee Titans RB Leon Washington With the Sweetest Moment of Thursday Night's Gamee

Leon Washington at one time was the guy you wanted to watch every time he got his hands on the ball, but that's not the case so much anymore. He's not lightning in a bottle like he used to be, but he is still a capable return man/running back. H just needs a chance to prove it.He got just such a chance Thursday night against the Jaguars, and even got the Titans on the board first...

It’s been four years since Tennessee has played Washington, or two head coaches ago for the Titans.

Last week, Washington lost to the Cardinals, 30-20 to fall to 1-5 on the season. They actually outgained the Cardinals. Bad field position and...

Washington Redskins, Oakland Raiders save the Tennessee Titans from themselves

From the outside, it would appear the Tennessee Titans struggled through the third day of NFL free agency. All they have to say for themselves are Leon Washington, Dexter McCluster and Charlie Whitehurst after names like Jason Hatcher and LaMarr Woodley were flaunted.

The Patriots have added some depth at cornerback. New England released running back Leon Washington and promoted cornerback Justin Green from the practice squad. Washington has been dealing with an ankle injury. He has suited up for just two games this season. Green’s promotion to the 53-man roster likely does not bode well for the status of cornerback Alfonzo Dennard, who...
