Orakpo checks in with the Beast

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

NEW YORK -- Even though a security guard tried to use a cut block on me, I was able to lob a question in Redskins defensive end Brian Orakpo's direction. He told me that a face-to-face meeting with defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth had a big impact on him wanting to be on the Redskins.

"He told me how he could he could help me get a lot of sacks," Orakpo said. "But I already knew that from watching him with the Titans. I was blessed to play with some great defensive tackles at Texas, so I know how much that helps in rushing the passer. I think Albert and I will be pretty tight."
