LANDOVER, MD. (AP) - Albert Haynesworth says he’s starting to like the Redskins’ 3-4 defense and is confident he can move back up to the starting lineup.

Haynesworth spoke after playing two first-half series with the second-string defense Friday night in Washington’s 42-17 exhibition victory over the Buffalo Bills. It’s the first time he’s taken questions from reporters since last season.

He had to pass a conditioning test at training camp after skipping offseason workouts because he wanted a trade to keep from playing in a 3-4 defense.

Haynesworth says he likes the defense now because he realizes the Redskins will allow him to rush the passer, “which is really important to me.”
