Redskins remain willing to unload Haynesworth
 
Redskins remain willing to unload Haynesworth

By Jason La Canfora | NFL.com

The Washington Redskins remain willing to unload defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, according to league sources, in hopes of dealing him prior to the draft. Haynesworth has made a poor impression with new coach Mike Shanahan, according to sources, and attempts to deal him to Philadelphia were not isolated.

Campbell, Redskins both want deal
Jason Campbell and Mike Shanahan have discussed options for the now-expendable quarterback, with both sides expressing a desire for a trade, Jason La Canfora says. More ...


Several executives believe the most likely option for Haynesworth -- if not the only option -- would be a return to Tennessee, where he played his best football and where he remains close with defensive line coach Jim Washburn. Finding a financial agreement could prove difficult -- Haynesworth had a $21 million bonus this month, which the Redskins would most certainly want some buy-back on -- as the Titans are generally prudent in their spending.

Shanahan is worried about Haynesworth's negative impact on chemistry, as he is reluctant to move to nose tackle in a 3-4 and is not taking part in offseason activities. Shanahan's initial meeting with Haynesworth did not go well, according to sources, and the coach is trying to break the culture of players being too empowered at Redskins Park. Haynesworth also has a strained relationship with many teammates in Washington, and dealing the defensive tackle would endear Shanahan to the locker room, according to team sources.

League sources believe the Titans would take Haynesworth back at the right price. Tennessee tried to retain him in free agency, but bowed out when the Redskins signed him to a record contract worth roughly $42 million guaranteed. Shanahan and Titans coach Jeff Fisher are also close friends, which could aid the completion of a deal.

Despite being the subject of trade rumors, Haynesworth still plans on reporting for the Redskins' minicamp being held April 16-18, an NFL source has told The Washington Post.

The Redskins are also continuing to look at defensive linemen, and are strongly interested in acquiring Adam Carriker from St. Louis, as we first reported weeks ago, a deal that could also well be concluded by the draft.

i've read so many bad reports on haynesworth that it makes me sick. he is just a spoiled millionaire that simply has taken his mind over that he is 10 ft tall and bullit proof. he's a done pro football player i think. he's set for life and simply he don't care anymore.i think teams should treat him the same and let him walk away.as a fan and many dollars of my life poured in the nfl it really ticks me that someone of that caliber don't put out like he can. the skins got blindsided by this guy.

Well, if i could trade bushrod and a 3rd straight up for him then i would, Jamal Brown straight up is solid but, I'd rather keep an all pro offensive line intact then get a monsterous DT. Maybe trade a player and pick from next years draft maybe a 2 but no #1's.... Haynesworth has done some stupid stuff but he's a large individual id rather have him then play against him.

2.5 years has passed sense albert did didily squat, if you remember he played dead against us when the chips were down and we took a soft lead, then the skins came back a bit in the game and low and behold who comes in and gets a sack, albert, the guy that they almost carried off the field a few plays earlier. sorry we can't pay this cat anyway besides i don't know if it would be a no# 3 they want. its just my opinion he could work out someway i just would'nt fool with this possum.
