The Seahawks kick return ace's 98 yard touchdown against Miami also tied an NFL record.


Leon Washington’s record-tying eighth kickoff return for a touchdown in Sunday’s game against the Dolphins has earned the Seahawks’ return specialist NFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors, the NFL announced this morning.

The NFL career record is eight, set by the Cleveland Browns Joe Cribs.

“I’m ecstatic,” Washington said. “But I’m humble at the same time, because we can want nine, 10, 11 and 12.”

The Seahawks take on the Chicago Bears this Sunday at 10 on AM 1280 and FM 99.3 Newstalk KIT.
