Perspective from Leon Washington

It's easy to brand professional athletes as disloyal for putting money before football.

The reality, of course, is that teams often aren't loyal, either. They dump injured players all the time. They terminate contracts all the time.

It's just business.

New Seattle Seahawks running back Leon Washington understands better than most what his former New York Jets teammate, Darrelle Revis, is thinking by demanding a new contract from the Jets. Washington, on his way back from the broken leg he suffered last season, lays it out during this conversation with ESPN's "First Take."

Are you sympathetic, or should players honor contracts no matter what? Should teams honor contracts no matter what?
