Why wait? Extend Leon!!! in NY Jets Forum Posted March 19, 2009 If it came down to it.....if Darren Sproles is franchise tag worthy, then Leon is franchise tag worthy. But really, one thing Tannenbaum has made sure of is that we don't lose anybody we really want to keep to Free Agency. Thomas, Cotchery, Rhodes have all been locked up either before or during their contract season. I'm not that concerned about it to be fully honest.
