Albert Haynesworth appeared on 106.7 the Fan D.C. with the Kevin and Rock show. This is his first public interview since the standoff events of this off-season. Haynesworth said all the right things, and mentioned he and Mike Shanahan were getting “better” with their coach-player relationship.
“I guess in this world we don’t have a lot of people with backbones,” he said. “Just because somebody pay you money don’t mean they’ll make you do whatever they want. I mean, that means everything is for sale. I mean, I’m not for sale. Yeah, I signed the contract and got paid a lot of money, but just because, that don’t mean I’m for sale or a slave or whatever. We agreed upon coming to that [contract] that I’d play defensive tackle and not nose guard and all that other stuff. I was signing with a 4-3 team. It was a lot of promises and stuff like that, but now, it’s been better, dealing with Haslett, and we run a lot of 4-3 stuff and you’ll see that tomorrow.”
