Pats announce Washington deal

The Patriots hosted veteran running back/returner Leon Washington at Gillette Stadium on Thursday and struck a one-year deal.

Prior to the Patriot's official announcement via a team release, Washington tweeted the following: "#Blessed Lets Go #Pats."

He included this picture in the tweet.

Washington, who represented the NFC as their Pro Bowl kickoff returner in 2012, projects to add a boost to the Patriots' return game. His addition could have a trickle-down effect on Danny Woodhead's future with the team, as Woodhead is a free agent.
