Washington Redskins Cut Phillip Daniels | Sports

(via BleacherReport)

The Washington Redskins had a busy day of cuts Thursday, releasing seven players to clear cap space and reshuffle the roster.

Among the cuts was 38-year-old defensive end Phillip Daniels who had become a fan favorite over his six seasons with the team.

Daniels spent his offseason strength conditioning and was reportedly stronger and more motivated than ever heading into his 2011 campaign after finishing last season on injured reserve.

The 15-year veteran was kind and humbled in a statement posted in Twitter after he received news of his release.

“Thank you to the Redskins organization for (seven) great years,” he wrote. “It’s tough to say goodbye when you have bled burgundy & gold for so many years. . . I want to keep playing football and proud of what I have accomplished as a Redskin.”

Also released Thursday was fellow defensive lineman Ma’ake Kemoeatu who wasn’t a true fit for Jim Haslett’s 3-4 defensive scheme.

Kemoeatu appeared in 14 games with 12 starts and recorded 29 tackles in his only season with the team.

The 32-year-old also posted comments on Twitter, albeit of a much shorter variety than Daniels.

“Thank you redskin nation you guys been Great,” he wrote.

Breaking News: Image Released of ‘Serial Slasher’, Victim Tell’s Her Story | Local, News

(via @WUSA9)

FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. (WUSA) — One of the “Serial Slasher’s” victims told her story to 9 News Now Thursday morning.

The victim says she was visibly pregnant when she was attacked in February exiting the Fair Oaks Mall in Fairfax.

She says the attacker left her with a deep three inch gash on her buttocks.

She tells other women to be aware of surroundings and don’t go shopping alone.

She also wished police told public about her attack six months ago.

Fairfax County Police have released new, significantly clearer images of a man investigators believe has been slashing young women on their buttocks at local retail stores and malls.

There have been five attacks in Northern Virginia since February including three at the Fair Oaks Mall. Other assaults happened at the Greenbriar Shopping Center and at Tysons Corner Center.

Investigators believe the suspect is using either a box cutter or a razor blade. In any case, police are convinced he will strike again unless he is caught.

“It is an unusual case,” said Fairfax County Police Spokeswoman Lucy Caldwell.

The newly released surveillance photographs show the suspect is Hispanic, about 5 feet, 6 inches tall and heavy-set. He allegedly distracts his young female victims while they shop and then, he strikes his target.

“It’s disconcerting, it is painful and you feel that your space has been violated. It’s a form of assault,” said Caldwell.

A criminal profiler tells 9NEWS NOW that the suspect may have a sexual disorder called piquerism. It’s a form of sadomasochism in which one finds sexual gratification by cutting or stabbing a person in a sexually significant area.

“We were a little surprised and it’s definitely a unique thing. It’s nothing that would fall in a normal category,” said Robbie Stark, the General Manager at Fair Oaks Mall.

At Fair Oaks, where the most recent attack targeted an 18 year-old victim, security remains tight. Women have called the mall, including parents.

“They’re concerned, obviously. I’m always more than willing to talk with them and explain what we know and what we’re doing. And it’s still a very safe place to be,” said Stark.

In surveillance photos, the suspect wears different clothing, but one item remains a constant: the large white watch on his left arm.

Police hope someone recognizes the suspect. The profiler said he may have tried this behavior with a wife or girlfriend and was rejected, so now, he’s now targeting strangers.

DC Residents “Celebrate” Haynesworth Exit

ESPN.com —- Before defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth could get to training camp and take his conditioning test, the Washington Redskins traded him to the New England Patriots for a 2013 fifth-round draft pick, according to league sources.

Haynesworth still must pass his physical, and Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Thursday morning that the trade was not yet completed.

“I talked to [Redskins coach] Mike Shanahan last night and we’re in the process of acquiring Haynesworth, but that’s not complete yet, so I can’t really comment on that at this point until it’s completed — if it does get completed,” Belichick said during a news conference. “So, we’ll see how that goes.”

Haynesworth clashed repeatedly with Shanahan and frequently skipped workouts. Shanahan suspended him for the final four games of last season for conduct detrimental to the team.

The 30-year-old Haynesworth was at his best when playing in the 4-3 scheme as a Tennessee Titan and seemed to prefer that over the Redskins’ 3-4 defense.

The Patriots, though, run plenty of multiple fronts, and Haynesworth lends needed help along their defensive line for a reduced price.

The former Pro Bowl player’s base salary for the coming season is $5 million. He is two years into a seven-year, $100 million contract that the Redskins signed him to in 2009, which included a then-NFL record $41 million in guaranteed money.

He played only 20 games with the Redskins, recording 6½ sacks.

Well, bye! Now you can go be some other team’s headache. All the assault charges, road rages, and quiting… arguments with Coach… not worth it, he costs to much to be such a major headache.
