Yes, in fact I think we've mentioned it here on this site before. But if memory serves correctly, his salary with the Redskins is actually just $1/year

Re: Did you guys know that

So why does he work for the Skins if he is only making 1 dollar?

He's a Senior Consultant for the Redskins, but that's not his only job. He's also the Medical Director of the Tampa Bay Rays, the Senior Consultant at the University of Alabama, Grambling University, co-Medical Director at Auburn, and so on.

I'm not positive about the dollar salary, but I remember it was very low.

Re: Did you guys know that

he's the most well known surgeon in the usa probably.he seems to be doing great because he has his own private jet,a multi million dollar rehab and surgery center,and he goes through 10 surgeries a day.did he work on carlos rogers last season?and i'm pretty sure he was treating sean taylor at the time he passed away too did'nt he?

I'd love to check this out but I don't believe HBO has a show called "inside sports"...do you mean "Inside the NFL" which airs on Showtime? But that couldn't be true either because "Inside the NFL's" newest episode airs on Wednesdays which is tonight...Im confussed, please know what you're talking about before you begin posting, I hate being misinformed

Here's an excellent article about Dr. Andrews:

Best in the country at what he does...

Over the years Snyder has become a great negotiator of contracts and he talked him down from 4.7 million down to just 1 dollar. Rumors had it that the Dr. was going to pay Snyder to work on Sundays but do to legal reason Snyder had to pay him something.

Re: Did you guys know that

Wow...maybe we can get him to do some "extra" surgeries on opposing team's star players.

He has the reputation for being the Dr. Kevorkian of sports medicine. You go to him, you don't return to the locker room. He's the guy you go to for the worst injuries.
