One of the biggest complaints coming out of the Washington Redskins front office over the past several years has been the lack of former players wanting to come back and be a part of the team. Former defensive end Phillip Daniels broke the mold and was hired as the team's director of player development.
Daniels recently spoke about his experience working with the Redskins:
“There’s a lot of things that other people in my position on other teams, they got,” he said. “I just say it like this: I never had a budget or anything like that. I never had that. I couldn’t do things for the guys’ families that I wanted to do. I wanted to help the guys out in every way possible. There were a lot of ideas I had that could have made things a lot better for the players and their families, and I just couldn’t do that.”
The former Redskin also said that he'd never met with former head coach Mike Shanahan or general manager Bruce Allen while employed by the team.Read more... Join the Conversation...
