Haynesworth Was Offered More Money From Tampa



Tampa Offered Haynesworth More Money

"They offered me a whole lot more, and even with their tax situation, it could have been 20 percent more. But you look at Washington, they've got a lot of the pieces together. They're right there. They're in a huge market. It's one of the largest markets in the world. You've just got a large, huge media outlet and it can be life beyond football. Going to Tampa, I mean, great city. Looking at it from the off-season standpoint, I love the water. I love to be out in the sun. It's just awesome, but it would've been like another Nashville. Tampa doesn't have that big market and they don't have a huge fan base like the Washington Redskins do, so I think it was just a choice just to look at it that way."


It's nice to know (even though it's scary at the same time) that Snyder was actually outbid by another team for a marquee player. Haynesworth seemed to have a better assesment of the Redskins when he was being scouted than the so called "experts" do right now. I'm glad that Haynesworth chose the Redskins and I feel sorry for Romo, McNabb, and Eli this upcoming year.
