- The Washington Times - Thursday, December 28, 2006

Everybody thinks Thursday was his last practice, and deep down, Adam Archuleta probably knows it was his final practice with the Washington Redskins.

But until the unofficial becomes official and the Redskins acknowledge their mistake with the way they utilized (and then didn’t utilize) Archuleta this season by giving him his release, he can’t speak out.

In the Redskins Park locker room, Archuleta spoke extensively for the first time since early November. He hasn’t played a defensive snap since the Redskins’ win at Dallas in Week 9. He has been limited to special teams action. He is surprised he hasn’t been made inactive for several late-season games.

But Archuleta would not pop off as many (including me) hoped he would.

“You guys probably know more than me,” he said. “I’m sure there are a lot of people that know more about this than I do. I don’t know anything.”

Archuleta maintained he has not been communicated with properly about his status, an assertion coach Joe Gibbs denied yesterday.

Later in the interview, Archuleta told me the coaches haven’t lied to him.

“It’s hard to say I’ve been lied to because I haven’t been talked to,” he said.
