The agent of RB Leon Washington, Alvin Keels, announced the Jets have tendered Washington at the second-round level.

Keels shared the news on Twitter.

"I expect there to be a market for Leon during free agency and would say his return to the Jets will be 50-50 at best at this point," Keels said.

Washington broke his leg in Week Seven last season, but the Jets were consistent in saying they wanted to get him re-signed.

"(Washington) is ahead of schedule while rehabbing from his injury. He will be 100 percent healthy and ready for camp either in New York or elsewhere," Keels said.
