Two months ago, former Redskins defensive lineman Phillip Daniels spoke out about two Redskins players failing drug tests. Now the Redskins have hired Daniels as their director of player development.
Daniels, whose 15-year NFL career ended when he was cut by the Redskins in training camp, was vocal about being disappointed in Redskins tight end Fred Davis and tackle Trent Williams for getting four-game suspensions for violations of the league’s substance-abuse policy. Apparently that made Daniels just the kind of guy the Redskins think they need in player development.
“We welcome Phillip back to the Redskins family,” Redskins General Manager Bruce Allen said in a statement. “His 15 years of NFL experience will be a great asset for our football team.”
Daniels played for the Seahawks from 1996 to 1999, for the Bears from 2000 to 2003 and for the Redskins from 2004 to 2010.
