Former Redskin Daniels Critical of How Team Handled Haynesworth
Newly released defensive end Phillip Daniels talks to the LaVar Arrington Show with Chad Dukes about his reaction to being cut by the Washington Redskins, as well as his take on the recently traded Albert Haynesworth and Donovan McNabb.
Daniels signed with the Redskins as an unrestricted free agent in 2004 and had his best year in 2005-06 where he recorded 8 sacks and 48 tackles. Redskins fans may best remember him for his record breaking performance on December 18, 2005, where he had career high four sacks and also recovered a fumble in a 35-7 win over the Dallas Cowboys.
A team leader on and off the field, Daniels was critical of his coaches handling of Albert Haynesworth, who has since been traded to the New England Patriots.
“That distraction that was sitting there all year really hurt the team in a lot of ways because you know when you’ve got distractions like that you can’t concentrate on football,” Daniels said to Chad and LaVar.
