Leon Washington, Seahawks agree to 4-year deal

Leon Washington's amazing comeback from a horrific leg injury has finally paid off for him, in a literal sense. The running back/return man landed a four-year with the Seattle Seahawks.

The news, first reported by Josina Anderson of Football Pros, was confirmed by his agent, Alvin Keels.

Washington's deal reportedly has a base value of $12.5 million (per Adam Schefter of ESPN), with around $3.5 million in guaranteed money. It can reportedly get as high as $16 million if certain incentives are reached.

Washington's injury, which occurred when he was with the Jets, was an impetus for Darrelle Revis' extended holdout before the 2010 season -- it looked like Washington would never get a shot at big money in the NFL again.

But after providing a tremendous special teams spark for Seattle in 2010 (Washington racked up over 1,400 return yards along with three touchdowns), he finally got a chance to ink a new deal. And he jumped all over it.
