Former Cowboys defensive tackle Jason Hatcher seems to be enjoying his time with the Washington Redskins thus far.
Hatcher, who joined the Redskins on a four-year, $27.5 million contract earlier this offseason, joined 105.3-FM The Fan this week to discuss the differences between Dallas--the only team he knew before this Redskins deal came about--and Washington.
“Every coach has a different approach, but there’s a lot of things different here,” Hatcher said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I don’t want to go into details about it because I don’t want to get blamed like, ‘Oh, he said this about Dallas…’
“They really take care of the veteran guys. They give us more say-so over the team. This is our team. The head coach don’t want to be policing the team. This is our team, so when we set the foundation for this football team, the way it’s supposed to go, that’s the way it’s supposed to go, through the players and not the coaches. It’s a players team, so whatever we say goes, pretty much, if it’s going in the right direction.”
The Cowboys’ first meeting with their old pal will come on Monday night, October 27, when the Redskins come to JerryWorld.
