Owner Dan Snyder is disappointed by his defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth.
Haynesworth, for his part, doesn’t feel that he’s been treated fairly. According to NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora, those close to Haynesworth say he feels that he’s been sold a bill of goods. The word used was “deceived.”
Here’s how they are selling it:
Haynesworth was promised before signing he could attack the quarterback when he came to Washington. The Redskins even considered trying to bring his old Titans defensive line coach Jim Washburn to town. Haynesworth had Snyder’s ear.
Now that’s all changed. He’s being asked to occupy blockers, and he can’t go around the coaches to get to Snyder anymore.
To this, we say: grow up. Things in life happen that are bigger than you. Coaches get fired, schemes change.
The Haynesworth camp would be better off not giving his side of the story.
