Defensive tackle Daryl Gardener has stated repeatedly that his priority is to return to the Redskins, but he is growing tired of the lack of contract negotiations after finishing a one-year contract.
"Right now, I don't know where things stand," Gardener told the Washington Post while visiting Redskins Park. "I'm here to work out and get this thing moving. It's moving at glacier speed right now. I'm still in the same boat. I'd rather be here. I've already made a commitment that I'm going to be here. I'd rather be on this team and in this community. We just need to get everything moving. The Redskins have had all the time. I look at it like it's time to go now."
UPDATE: According to the Washington Post, defensive tackle Daryl Gardener nearly walked away from the Redskins after recent contract talks broke down, but that the free agent is now awaiting a new proposal. The sides were reportedly close to a deal in the range of five years witha $5 million signing bonus, but Gardener was upset about a secondary clause that would give the team a buyout after three years if his history of back problems flares up again.
