When he heard after the game that former captain London Fletcher had harshly criticised him, defensive coordinator Jim Haslett was shocked.
Though regarded as the heart and soul of the team, linebacker's play had fallen off. Here are a few examples.
The recently retired linebacker will resurface for pick No. 34, if the Redskins in fact choose at that spot.
Allen says Jay Gruden and his assistants will fill the void left by London Fletcher, and that gradually, the team’s locker-room leaders will emerge.
Almost-retired linebacker says "job was Gruden's to lose from the start" on Twitter.
Linebacker says, 'I played 16 years and accomplished what I was able to accomplish. I feel good about that.'
The Washington Redskins close out the 2013 season today, taking on the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium today at 1 p.m. on FOX.
At last, Washington's nightmare of a season will draw to a close.
But linebacker reiterates he's 99 percent sure he'll retire after the season, saying he has 'no regrets' and it 'just feels like it's the right time.'
But linebacker stops short of blaming team's record on the controversies, saying: 'I just think we didn't play good football.'
