On the field, you won’t often see a kicker get into the face of a defensive tackle. But when talking to the media Thursday, former Redskins kicker Mark Moseley had some harsh words for Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth.
“My two cents worth: Albert Haynesworth needs to get his ass out of town and go somewhere else,” Moseley said, per the Washington Post. “And I think if the Redskins could do that, they would do that. I don’t know the background of all of it, the money parts of it, but when you have a player like that that is that disgruntled, get him out of here. He’s a cancer to these guys.”
Moseley, who played for the Redskins from 1974 to 1986 and was voted league MVP in 1982, is the Redskins’ all-time leading scorer. He said it’s time for the team to turn its attention to the players who showed up to this week’s mandatory minicamp, and not to the player who’s skipping it.
“They’re the players that deserve to play,” Moseley said, “and when you have a player like that, I don’t care how much money he makes it’s not worth having a disgruntled player in here to spread cancer among the team.”
