Dallas Cowboys lose Jason Hatcher to rival Washington Redskins

When the Dallas Cowboys were forced to cut DeMarcus Ware, it hurt but he went on to the Denver Broncos and will compete for a Super Bowl ring in 2014. However, ESPN reported on March 13 that Jason Hatcher chose to move to the Cowboys’ biggest rival when he left Dallas and signed with the Washington Redskins.

Dallas had about $10 Howeto spend when free agency started thanks to the departure of DeMarcus Ware, but Hatcher was looking for a bigger deal of between $8 and $10 million a year. Dallas couldn’t afford that and Hatcher publicly announced that he wanted the big time free agent deal, and had five teams lined up to visit.

That made Hatcher’s declaration when he signed with Washington puzzling. Hatcher, who finished 2013 with a career high 11 sacks, said that he felt there were no signs that Dallas still wanted him. Since Hatcher said he wanted to hit the free agent trail as soon as the season ended, it seems more like he didn’t want to stay in Dallas.

He proved that when he signed with the Cowboys’ most hated rivals.

The Washington Redskins signed Jason Hatcher to a four-year, $27.5 million deal. Hatcher said that the fans are not happy, and they shouldn’t be, but he made the decision that was best for him. In 2014, he will now have two chances to prove that Dallas was wrong in letting him go.
