Jets Free Agency 2012: Jim Leonhard Won't Rule Out Return

Jim Leonhard has been the New York Jets free safety for the last three years, but now finds himself as a free agent, rehabbing a patellar tendon tear. He still won't rule out a return to the Jets.

"There's still a very good possibility it could be the best situation for me," Leonhard said in an interview before the appearance, to promote Verizon's contest for customers to announce a pick at the NFL Draft. "You never know. Things could change in the next two weeks with the draft; things could be better here, better there. It's just hard to try to predict the future, and that's been the hardest part."

Leonhard started 13 games for the Jets in 2011 and recorded one interception. He did not allow a passing touchdown. The Jets have signed veteran safeties LaRon Landry and Eric Smith already this offseason.
