Hatcher was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the third round of the 2006 NFL Draft. He played college football at Grambling State. After eight seasons with the Cowboys, Hatcher signed a four-year $27.5 million contract on March 14, 2014, to play defensive end in the Redskins’ 3-4 defense. In training camp he underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and missed two weeks. He would also injure his right knee during the regular season and after being inactive in weeks 15 through 16, he was placed on the injured reserve list on December 27. He finished with 25 tackles, 5.5 sacks and 26 quarterback pressures.
In 2015, he had knee issues that limited his practice time. He appeared in 15 games, registering 20 tackles, 2 sacks, one pass defensed and one forced fumble. He was released on March 7, 2016.
It may be Kevin Williams played better than Jason Hatcher did last year but he is two years younger.
