Shanahan speaks openly about Haynesworth

Posted on: July 19, 2010 6:07 pm
Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan talked about Albert Haynesworth in a Monday interview with WFAN New York. Shanahan was refreshingly honest about his discussions with the selfish star. provided the transcript:

"Well to be honest with you, I’m looking forward to camp starting. And my understanding is that Albert’s going to be there. As we talked before, I talked to Albert right before ... well, about a month after I got the job and I sat down with Albert and said that if he does not want to be part of the Washington Redskins, I’d let him go. I wouldn’t trade him, I’d let him go to another football team. But if he did take the check for $21 million, I’d expect him to play any position that we thought was in the best interest of the Washington Redskins -- be it nose tackle, defensive end, if we wanted to play him at free safety … So expected him to come in in great shape and do the things we expected of him and that he’s capable of doing. Hopefully he does that. He didn’t show up at minicamp, so guys are going to be looking at him and seeing what type of shape he’s in, if he’s going to do the little things the right way. Time will tell. If he is buying in and he is in great shape, we know what type of talent he is and we know he can help our football team win."
