When it came time to make the 139th pick in the NFL draft, the Seahawks didn’t. They traded their second pick in the fifth round to the New York Jets for running back Leon Washington and a seventh-round pick (No. 237 overall).
Washington, 27, was the Jets’ fourth-round draft choice in 2006 and he had his most productive season as a rookie with 151 carries for 650 yards. He scored a career-high six touchdowns in 2008. But last year, Washington got a compound fracture of his fibula in Week 7 and missed the rest of the season.
The 5-foot-8, 195-pound Washington had 331 yards on 72 carries before the injury.
