I don't even remember what the story was behind letting him go... was it a money thing?
It was money, but then again, I wouldn't necessarily call 50 total tackles and 9 sacks a "Monster Year".
Maybe not "Monster Year" but still a pretty damn good year. There are only three other linemen with more tackles and they have 57, 53, and 51. But they only have 1, 1.5 and 3 sacks respectively. He's #8 in sacks.
That whole D Line is having a great year. Brian Orakpo has 7 sacks, Carter with 9 and ofcourse they have Haynesworth, which is probably for this great production.
Redskins have the #1 Ranked Pass Defense in the league, and their passrush is the reason why.
...and thats why our pass defense sucks..
