Jets’ Washington could end boycott soon

Jets kick returner and backup running back Leon Washington has not attended voluntary Organized Team Activities (OTAs), which started Monday, reportedly because he’s unhappy with the way his contract extension negotiations have been handled.

Alvin Keels, Washington’s agent, told’s Steve Wyche on Tuesday that talks were stalled. But according to the New York Post, Keels was sending a different message a day later:

    “Positive talk with the Jets today,” Keels stated on his Twitter account yesterday. “Jets fans, everything will be fine. Myself and Mike T [Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum] will put our heads together and continue to work.”

Since negotiations seem to be moving in the right direction, Washington could be back on the field for the next round of voluntary OTAs, on May 18-19
