WASHINGTON (AP) Ex-Redskins linebacker London Fletcher says he wants to make amends for his scathing criticism of the team's former defensive coordinator, Jim Haslett.

On Wednesday, Fletcher wrote on Twitter that he had ''reached out'' to Haslett and ''apologized for the harm I caused him and his family. He didn't deserve to be treated like that.''

In a TV appearance in December, Fletcher called Haslett ''clueless'' and responsible for Washington's ''ineptitude'' on defense.

The linebacker retired after the 2013 season. Haslett was let go by the Redskins after last season.
