Reports conflicting as to whether or not he threw his equipment out his car window as he drove out of town.
He was set to retire anyway, wasn't he?
Later went on Inside the NFL and tried to say he was giving the fans "something to remember him by." One of the lamest attempted spin jobs I've ever seen. His actions were aggressive and appeared fueled by anger.
Leon would rather flip burgers than play for the Patriots again.
I have a feeling he will be paired wih Leon Washington in the Jets backfield for the 2007 season. I can't say I will be upset if it happens.
Why did he want to leave the Patriots?
Just speculation on my part though, because from what I had heard he was set to hang it up for good.
I'm glad things turned around on him: A winner doesn't want him because they found somebody better.
I never blamed Dillon for leaving the Bengals. He could have been a lot more grown up about it, but still I thought he had all the right in the world to decide that he'd rather go somewhere else after enduring the incompetence of the Bengals.
Running backs just don't have a long shelf life. Cory Dillon, in his prime, was a great one. But as Rudi Johnson proved in Cincinnati, and Joseph Addai did in Indianapolis, there are lots of younger guys who can step into the older guy's shoes very nicely. Dillon knew that and I can't blame him at all for wanting to get his ring before he lost a half a step instead of sticking around and hoping the Bengals would win sooner than later.
I don't quite know what he's up to now, but I never felt the animosity towards him that a lot of other Bengals fans did.
Next Reds manager, second shooter. --Confirmed on Redszone.
I didn't either, SD, till I witnessed that classless final display along with some other of his choice quotes as he put Cincy in his rearview mirror.
He got his ring. I was happy for him.
Never blamed him for the BS he pulled in Cincy, his best years were wasted on a franchise that had no desire to win. I hope he makes the Hall of Fame.
