Washington honored

Leon Washington

Leon Washington, pictured right, is congratulated by safety Jeron Johnson after his 98-yard kickoff return for a touchdown tied Josh Cribbs’ NFL-record of eight career kickoff returns for TDs.

Leon Washington’s record-tying eighth kickoff return for a touchdown in Sunday’s game against the Dolphins has earned the Seahawks’ return specialist NFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors, the League announced this morning.

Washington’s 98-yarder in Miami allowed him to tie the NFL career record that was set by the Browns’ Josh Cribbs.

We covered the record-tying return and Washington’s reaction in this story yesterday, which also includes the video of his return.

“I’m ecstatic,” Washington said. “But I’m humble at the same time, because we can want nine, 10, 11 and 12.”
