Then why did he end his boycott of the off-season workouts?
"I probably shouldn't say this - I was missing it, missing it a lot," said Washington about being away from his teammates.
So how much money is Washington looking for?
"I want fair market value," said Washington.
That reportedly is $6 million per season.
If things don't progress on the contract front, will Washington hold out of training camp?
"No decision has been made on training camp - I will wait until that time comes around," said Washington.
One perceived issue with this problematic negotiation is the relative inexperience of Washington's agent Alvin Keels.
