Gibbs Motivation !?!

On Saturday, however, he was in better spirits, having redirected his energies into two spirited days of practice under new coach Joe Gibbs. Arrington said he had felt an obligation to speak out over what he perceived was an injustice -- and that he intends to let the arbitration process take its course -- but he stressed anew a commitment to the Redskins.

"The more I think about it, and the more I just look around, I really don't want to be anywhere else," Arrington said. "I really love the fans. For $6.5 million, it's not worth my relationship with the fans. I don't want that to be the legacy that I leave behind. I really want to reconcile whatever differences there are."

Asked who needs to make the first move to reconcile his relationship with Snyder, Arrington said: "I think I just made the first move."

I think that Arrington sees himself as one of those "Core Redskins Players" that Gibbs keeps talking about. I think that this is or could be a good step in the right direction for this whole mess.

I like the comment about how $6.5 million means less to him than the fans do!!!! That is commitment!!!!

This is defientely the first reasonable thing that's been said on this matter in a while. I think LA must have looked around at camp and thought "I want to be a part of this!" Let's hope the skins and LA can really get it settled.

It's nice to hear that LA values us more than 6.5 mil! That's a whole lotta love!

Well i know one thing for sure, this guy loves the fans! How do i know? Well my young (16 years old) brother and couple of his friends drove to Arrington house and called him outside to play football with him and he actually came out and played with them for half hour!

I love the guy and I hope an immediate resolution can be found.

Good to see he's coming around, but it's still early.

sounds to me like he's realizing his stupid agents are the ones who screwed up. Besides, isn't finishing his career for the Skins worth a lot more than 6.5 mil in the long run? He could be a legend in DC ala Darrell Green after his playing days are over. Make a killing on endorsements and such.

Yeah, at some point, you just make so much money that an extra $6.5 million should not get in the way of what you WANT to do. He obviously wants to be here.
