FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - Leon Washington is ready to do more than just return kicks and punts for the New England Patriots.
But if that's all the free agent signee gets to do for his new team, he sounds ready to live with it.
Washington, now 31, debuted with the New York Jets and played the last three seasons with Seattle. A 98-yard kick return for a touchdown last year gave him eight kick return TDs in his seven-year career, tying him with Josh Cribbs for the NFL record.
With Danny Woodhead leaving the Patriots for San Diego, there's an opening for an all-purpose third-down back in New England.
