If you let LaVar Arrington tell it, Washington D.C. is the Bermuda Triangle of the NFL.

The Redskins have been dysfunctional for years, but this version of one of the league's most storied franchises needs therapy all the way around.

Former Penn State great and Redskins linebacker LaVar Arrington speaks of a dysfunction so strong that great players head to the Nations Capital and turn into scrubs overnight.

“Every year that the Hall of Fame inductees go in and I watch it, I just sit there and I think about, I gave my best years to dysfunction,” Arrington told Sportsnet 590 The Fan, via Scott Allen of the Washington Post. “It just kind of bothers me a little bit . . . because it’s like if you had the structure in place to have success, my track record kind of speaks for itself. Guys that have come in there, Robert Griffin III, guys that have been there, their track records speak for themselves. How does a guy go from being special on every level, and then they come to the Redskins and it’s gone? The magic is gone. I can’t explain it. It’s almost a weird phenomenon, and I hate that I’m a statistic of that weird phenomenon.”

Arrington was a three-time Pro Bowler who was once the face of the organization, until injuries and contract issues ended his career.
