We’ve been searching for someone, anyone who’ll take the side of Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth in connection with his recent decision to skip a mandatory minicamp and openly demand a trade.
And we’ve finally found somone. Actually, GoVolsXtra.com — an unexpected source of material for us during the emerging slow period — found him. He’s former University of Tennessee linebacker Al Wilson, whose common first name and common college program apparently provided enough of a connection to get Wilson to stand up for Haynesworth.
Wilson, who last last played in 2006 to cap eight seasons with the Denver Broncos, doesn’t like the criticism coming from other members of the Redskins.
“I think his teammates should support him a little more,” Wilson
said. “I do believe that.
“A lot of times players, when [players] get in front of cameras, they
allow emotions to take over. It shouldn’t be that way. Some things
should be in house. Some things you should keep to yourself.”
Yes, Al Wilson. Some things you really should keep to yourself.
And maybe that’s why, per the same report, Haynesworth avoided the media at the inaugural A3 Celebrity Golf Tournament, hosted by the agency that represents him.
