In a little less than an hour, the Albert Haynesworth press conference kicks off in the auditorium here at Redskins Park. Sometime not long after that, possibly on this very site, there will be a picture of Haynesworth. He will be standing at a podium holding a #92 Redskins jersey with his name on the back, smiling and looking out at the assembled DC media.
Which is why, earlier today, equipment manager Brad Berlin was downstairs in the equipment room, assembling letters on the table…
…slow-pressing them onto the jersey…
…and then quick-blasting them permanently into place.
What you get at the end isn’t a game-ready jersey, but it’s also not quite an appearance jersey — both of those use stitch-on letters on a nameplate, not iron-on letters. What this is, essentially, is a prop to facilitate that inevitable “new guy holding the jersey picture.” Nothing more, and nothing less.
