The Redskins are ready to move forward, again. Maybe Albert Haynesworth is on board.
A day after the strained (and now very public) relationship between Haynesworth and Redskins coach Mike Shanahan escalated into trading barbs in a he-said, he-said exchange, there seems to be a temporary sense of … resolution normalcy. Enter London Fletcher, one of the veterans who didn’t jump to defend Haynesworth during the offseason.
“We had a great conversation. I feel good about where he’s at today,” Fletcher said of Haynesworth, via the team’s Twitter account.
He added, “Just speaking to him, he’s definitely on board for what we’re trying to do.”
Haynesworth might be on board, but now he isn’t talking. According to The Washington Post, Haynesworth declined to field questions on Monday, and when asked when he would, replied “Never.”
While Haynesworth remains mum, we’re starting to see quotes surface from teammates, who appear fed up with the same conversation. Until Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco up their game, Redskins Park is now the center of NFL drama.
