Redskins DE Jason Hatcher talks great about the Cowboys; No Trash talking
For the first eight seasons of his NFL career, Washington Redskins defensive end Jason Hatcher called Dallas home. The Cowboys selected him in the third round out of Grambling State in 2006, and after five seasons as a backup, he started from 2011 to ’13. Last season was a career year for Hatcher, as he recorded 11 sacks and made the Pro Bowl.
The Cowboys let the 32-year-old depart via free agency. On Monday, Hatcher will make his first return to AT&T Stadium and will line up opposite his former teammates — a number of them close friends. This week Hatcher said it is just like another game, but had kind things to say about the organization.
“I was there eight years of my career, man,” he said. “I had a great career there, but I am approaching this game like any other game. It’s a must-win for us. So, I’m just concentrating on being the best player I can be to help our defense play the best they can. It’s no extra emotions involved. It’s just another game.”
