More Snyder on Haynesworth
As he made his Super Bowl media rounds last week, Daniel Snyder told Rick Maese he was "disappointed" in the way the Haynesworth signing worked out. There were such a bounty of Snyder media opportunities, though, that the Haynesworth thing came up elsewhere, and he elaborated slightly.
Here he is, for example, talking to WJLA's Britt McHenry.
"Well obviously I'm disappointed," the owner said. "When you've got a player on your football team that's earning the type of money that Albert's earning, you expect more. It's that simple. On the other hand, I'm proud of Bruce Allen and Mike Shanahan, the way they've handled it"
McHenry then asked if it was possible to imagine Haynesworth in burgundy and gold again.
"Sure," he said. "Absolutely. You never know. All I'm hoping for right now is that the commissioner and union can get something done. I'm optimistic we'll be playing football next year, and I'm excited about our future.
Snyder also discussed Haynesworth during a Friday appearance with Jim Rome.
"One of the things I've done, and I did it with Joe Gibbs for four-plus years, is I've turned over the football operation to Bruce Allen and Mike Shanahan," Snyder told Rome. "So it's up to them. I'm hopeful, optimistic as I always am, trying to be positive, but obviously disappointed with what happened last year with Albert, disappointed with how much money we've paid him and what we've received back. I'm disappointed as the owner of the team. It's something that's tough, difficult. We'll see what happens."
