Former Redskins Executive Vinnie Cerrato Weighs In On Albert Haynesworth

The man who brought Albert Haynesworth to Washington has weighed in on the current situation brewing at Redskins Park.

"When he signed, he said he wanted to prove everybody wrong," said Vinnie Cerrato, the team's executive vice president of football operations during the 2008-09 seasons. "He said he wanted to show everybody that it's not about the money. He said he wanted to be the best that ever played. He said he wanted to be like Reggie White. He said Reggie White was his hero, so live up to what you said. Don't have it change just because a coach changed."

Cerrato went on to say that Haynesworth would actually enjoy playing for Shanahan and that he doesn't even really know what his role on the defense would be because he hasn't been in Washington.
