Redskins | Archuleta upset with way staff has handled his benching

The Associated Press reports Washington Redskins S Adam Archuleta has not played a snap on defense in seven weeks. Head coach Joe Gibbs and assistant Gregg Williams have not offered an explanation for the benching. Archuleta said, "Do I deserve an explanation? I don't know if an explanation matters anymore because what's done is done. I pretty much know what's going on. I pretty much know what it all stems from." Archuleta did not go into detail, but he added he hopes the team will be more upfront with him when they meet for exit interviews next week. "I'm a grown man. I don't like getting lied to," Archuleta added. "All people want is for people to be straight up with them. I don't mind bad news. I don't mind negativity. I don't mind if somebody says to my face what my flaws are and what I'm doing wrong and what kind of person they think I am." Archuleta was signed in March to the richest contract for a safety in NFL history.
