Haynesworth not worth the trouble
June 20, 2010
Albert Haynesworth continues to be a pain in the neck to all Redskin fans. Haynesworth has clearly stated that he does not want to play in the new 3-4. He wants out of Washington. If he wants out then the Redskins should give him what he wants.
Haynesworth is nothing more than a cancer to the team. He doesn’t participate in the off-season training, he doesn’t want to play a 3-4 defense. He is just being a big baby. The Skins should do themselves a favor and get rid of him, and spare the other players and coaches all this drama.
On a brighter note, the Redskins traded a third round pick for two-time all pro offensive tackle Jammal Brown from the Saints. This should help to solidify their offensive line that will hope to provide great protection for Donovan McNabb.
Now that Haynesworth is out on the trade market, there is a good implication that a third round draft pick might be the asking price. Considering that the Redskins gave up a third rounder to get Brown, receiving a third rounder would be like trading Brown for Haynesworth straight up. Of course, trading Haynesworth for Brown straight up is what many people thought that’s what the Skins should have done in the first place.
Redskins coach Mike Shanahan is confident in the depth of his nose takles, the Redskins will have Maake Kemoeatu to back him up. Kemoeatu is still recovering from an Achilles’ tendon injury but said he will likely be ready once training camp begins.
The Redskins seem like they will have little trouble moving on once they rid themselves of Haynesworth. The only question is how they will rid of the DC villain.
