Jones Reports to Jets Camp, Washington Doesn’t

The ever-confusing Jets running back situation got a bit more convoluted Thursday, as the team opened training camp. reports that the team and Leon Washington – who is in the final year of his contract – are close to a negotiating a contract agreement. But Washington did not attend Day 1 of camp.

Washington’s backfield buddy, Thomas Jones — who’s also likely to become a free agent after the 2009 season, since he is due a $3 million bonus prior to 2010 – reported to camp on time. However, there’s no evidence that the Jets and Jones are close to restructuring a deal.
