Prompted by our post about Vince Coleman’s visit to Redskins minicamp, Williams World News unearthed the Wikipedia page of ex-Skins P Jeff Hayes, and it’s a doozy.
Rather than list all of the craziness contained therein, let’s just excerpt the Wikipedia entry in full:

It does not appear that there is interesting about this, at least as it pertains to your Washington Redskins, but, hey, NEW NIKE NFL UNIFORMS.
Jabar Gaffney got the Serenity Prayer tattooed down the right side of his torso. Text ink of that size accomplishes little other than make me sad that the season of Archer is over.
