08:00 AM ET 11.23 | Redskins tight end Chris Cooley isn't shy with his opinions, and, during a recent radio appearance, offered his take on former teammate Albert Haynesworth. "The thing that I would think about Albert, the way his last three years have played out, is that he hates football," Cooley said. "I'm not criticizing his character or his work or anything. My only assumption in this, and it's just an opinion, is that he does not like football, by what I've seen over the last three years. If he loved the game of football, he'd show up and love it." Haynesworth signed a $100 million deal in 2009, but never lived up to the expectations that came along with the contract.

So what's Cooley's excuse for being useless?

To be fair. injuries.

But Cooley does talks too much and is a media hound.

So what's your take on players who spend way too much time lining up a broadcasting career after football, Mr. Cooley?

Hey, hey ,hey... I thought Fat Albert loves to play football.

November 23, 2011  08:50 AM ET

What a waste of oxygen Fat Albert is.

November 23, 2011  08:54 AM ET

Hates football. Loves the buffett at Golden Corral though.

Waste of money and a cancer in the locker room. Not a good combo for a young, impressionable Buc team

He got paid and he got lazy. I think Dan Snyder could file grand theft charges and put him away if he wanted.
