Arrington Arbitration Hearing Postponed

Redskins Director of Football Administration Eric Schaffer issued a statement on Tuesday after learning of the request for postponement for LaVar Arrington's arbitration hearing.

"I heard about the request for postponement and was disappointed," Schaffer said. "And while we agreed to the postponement, I think it is very important to finalize through arbitration that the Redskins did nothing wrong to our highest paid player. I also feel strongly that the business ethics of the agent should be questioned and looked into."

The arbitration case stems from a dispute by Arrington's agent over the long-term contract that Arrington signed in December 2003.

The arbitration hearing had been scheduled for mid-July, prior to the start of training camp on Aug. 1.
