Seahawks | Leon Washington comfortable with blocking scheme

Seattle Seahawks RB Leon Washington (leg) said he is comfortable with the team's zone blocking scheme because 70 percent of the New York Jets' rushing yards last season came from zone blocking schemes, reports Yahoo! Sports' Doug Farrar. "Before the 2009 season, [Jets offensive line] coach [Bill Callahan] sat down with [Seahawks offensive line coach Alex Gibbs] and learned the zone-running scheme that we implemented last year, and that's how we led the league in rushing, with zone and power. So, I'm used to running the zone scheme. It really suits our backs, because we attack the line at different angles. It will be fun to see the things I learned in New York carry over to here," Washington said.
