Leonhard only looking to play 1 more year

Posted by Chris Brown on December 30, 2013 – 12:28 pm

Bills veteran safety Jim Leonhard is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason after playing on a one-year deal for Buffalo this past season. After nine years in the NFL, Leonhard isn’t looking to break the bank in free agency. All he wants to do is play one more season before he retires.

“I want to play one more and that’s it,” Leonhard said Monday. “I know that. I’ve known that for a couple of years. I want to get 10 (years). Whether that’s here or somewhere else is yet to be determined, but I’m definitely open to the possibility of coming back.”

Knowing Leonhard’s close relationship with defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Leonhard re-sign with the club for what he says will be his final NFL season as a player.
