Former Patriots safety Rodney Harrison ripped into defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth Wednesday, telling Vic Carucci on Cleveland’s WKNR Radio that Haynesworth “flat out quit” on New England.
“To see Albert Haynesworth get an opportunity to come to a great organization, with a great coach, a fabulous quarterback and all the good parts around him...to see him come out there and flat out quit, for him to pretend like he’s hurt and not go out there and become a professional football player with every chance and opportunity that guys hope and dream for, he gets it. He gets a $100 million contract, and to see him flat out quit was very disappointing.
“And I’ll tell you this, he’s going to look back five, 10, 15 years from now when he’s done playing football. He will look back on his career and he will be sitting in his mansion. But he will feel miserable, because no one is going to ever respect the name Albert Haynesworth because he flat out quit. That’s a shame and that’s a disappointment. You shouldn’t play the game of football for money. You should play it because you love it. If you love it, and you go out and play well, you’re going to make money. You’re going to have a good life. But I’m very disappointed in Albert Haynesworth.”
