Haynesworth could be heading home

NFL_haynesworth1.jpgThe fact that the Redskins offered defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth to the Eagles as part of the Donovan McNabb package wasn’t a one-time thing.

Jason La Canfora of NFL.com recently reported that he expects the Redskins to continue to try to trade the man with the four-year, $48 million contract.  John Clayton of ESPN.com believes that Haynesworth could return to the Titans, the team with which he spent his first seven NFL seasons.  Clayton also believes that the Redskins could send Haynesworth to the Rams for defensive tackle Adam Carriker.

Before the McNabb trade went down, we heard Haynesworth’s name mentioned as one of the possible pieces of the package that could be put together for a run at Sam Bradford.

Bottom line?  It’s looking like the Redskins are willing to declare defeat regarding the Haynesworth deal, and then move forward.

    sweet and they’re only out how many million?

    If the foreSkins are willing to pay most of the remaining money, I am sure there are a lot of teams willing to make a trade. But I dont think any team is going to take Fat Albert off of their hands, without knowing what the future of the salary cap is….

    Hey, hey, hey man! If they trade him that would be waayy cool!

  4. quadya says: Apr 6, 2010 12:15 PM

    ive said it before and ill say it again, snyder is such as idiot.

  5. blacktoothgrin says: Apr 6, 2010 12:15 PM

    They are going to have to eat some of that contract to trade him, I highly doubt anyone else would be willing to pay that much

  6. whocanitbenow says: Apr 6, 2010 12:16 PM

    No one will trade for him with that contract based on his performance last year.

  7. Free_Ryan_Leaf says: Apr 6, 2010 12:16 PM

    Who the hell wants that ludicrous contract but the Redskins?

  8. Reggie'sBush says: Apr 6, 2010 12:17 PM

    Save this article, you can exchange Redskins with Bears and Haynesworth with Peppers in 1-2 seasons.
    Your welcome.

    100 million dollar bust

  10. TJ says: Apr 6, 2010 12:18 PM

    i’d take him in Tampa for our 2nd 2nd round pick or our 3rd and still draft suh, mccoy or berry.

  11. BBB82 says: Apr 6, 2010 12:24 PM

    Too bad Washington signed him to that ridiculous contract. I bet a trade would be a lot easier without it.

  12. G MACK says: Apr 6, 2010 12:24 PM

    maybe he only looked good cuz of KVB, maybe sending him to detroit would revamp his play making abilities, but then again why not just draft SUH, who is touted as the nest Reggie White….so i say redskins got the wool pulled over their scalps…..even a pile of shit look halfway decent next to a glop of vomit……

    LMAO! The mental picture I got while reading that was priceless

  14. emoser says: Apr 6, 2010 12:24 PM

    Maybe they could trade him and their 4th overall for a 2nd round pick. Whoever takes him is doing them a favor, not the other way around.

  15. BenRapistberger says: Apr 6, 2010 12:30 PM

    you should use the picture of him putting his cleat on someones face instead.

  16. The Notorious V.I.C. says: Apr 6, 2010 12:31 PM

    Everybody gets all caught up on the $100 million figure in Haynesworth’s contract, which doesn’t even matter.
    As mentioned in this article, 4 years $48mill is not that outrageous. $12mill a year for a dominant defensive tackle is pretty much the going price. Julius Peppers is getting similar money from Chicago.

  17. downwithdansnyder says: Apr 6, 2010 12:33 PM

    Just find a way to get that fat a$$ to get in shape and maybe he’ll start earnings some of that money.

  18. BeezAtUT says: Apr 6, 2010 12:38 PM

    The ‘Skins would have to bear the brunt of that contract for him to come back to Tennessee.
    That’s why they didn’t resign him to begin with.
    I also can’t see Tennessee trading for him.
    That’s why they didn’t resign him to begin with.
    Sure, their defense struggled without him the first half of the season, but they really played as a more cohesive unit the last half of the year.

  19. tomcous says: Apr 6, 2010 12:38 PM

    This will look like a Baseball trade in the end … how much of the contract are the Skins allowed to eat-up? … if it’s zero then that’s the interest they’re going to get for him.

  20. Bill In DC says: Apr 6, 2010 12:41 PM

    Well, riddle me this. If the Redskins are willing to declare ‘defeat’, why would anyone else want him and his contract (I’m sure he’d be willing to negotiate a lower contract – about the time pigs fly).
    Anyone wanting to take on that contract would have to be certifiable.

  21. Ruhskins says: Apr 6, 2010 12:43 PM

    Why are the Redskins conceding defeat? The current front office did not acquire Haynesworth.

  22. ccoolahan14 says: Apr 6, 2010 12:45 PM

    That’s weird, a skins big-name acquisition didn’t work out! Yet, we STILL have to hear comments from absolute morons about how good the skins are going to be because they got Donovan McNabb. I guess 10 straight seasons of undeniable proof that their system only leads them to continually be one of the worst teams in the league isn’t enough!

  23. geek says: Apr 6, 2010 12:45 PM

    Watch out ‘Skins fans! Mike is really famous at his handling of Defensive Lines! Like that one time when he took the entire group of first-round drafted linemen who never quite panned out in Cleveland and positively confirmed for everyone in the league that they were busts… Shanny may know the running game and may be able to get a lot from a washed out QB, but don’t let him touch your defense!

  24. DallasRavens says: Apr 6, 2010 12:49 PM

    @The Notorious V.I.C.
    you say “As mentioned in this article, 4 years $48mill is not that outrageous. $12mill a year for a dominant defensive tackle is pretty much the going price. Julius Peppers is getting similar money from Chicago.”
    I think the point everyone is trying to make here is “dominate defensive tackle.” He was a turd last year…better yet a floating turd.

  25. Tony Alexander says: Apr 6, 2010 12:54 PM

    Do you people read and pay attention or just chime in randomly with nonsense? The Skins already paid Fat Albert $21 on April 1 – given that, any team interested could land him for a three year deal at around $16.2 mil – total. That is not a big contract

  26. bomismorg says: Apr 6, 2010 12:54 PM

    there is a report just surfacing from utelllimewire…..it states albert and andy reid were seen having lunch at a chinese buffet….ohhh wait they were refused service for being to fat!

  27. Big J says: Apr 6, 2010 12:59 PM

    Haynesworth would have a huge contract no matter what team he signed with. People love to talk shi* about the Redskins, but they would love it if the owner of thier favorite team would spend the money to bring in big name players. Haynesworth was doubled teamed every play and made a big inpact on how well the other lineman played. He would improve any team he plays on. As soon as someone has a major injury on thier D-line the Redskins phone will be ringing.

  28. bgm says: Apr 6, 2010 1:04 PM

    Haynesworth needs to go.
    Eat whatever $$ they can and trade him for whatever they can. This team has needed to be cleansed for a LONG TIME and now there’s someone running the show who has no problem cleaning house.
    I know he’s only been there a year, but that’s too long a stay imo.

  29. Beezer says: Apr 6, 2010 1:15 PM

    Yet another overrated and overpaid free agent signing or trade the skins regret. That makes Adam Archuleta, Deion Sanders, Mark Carrier, Antwaan Randle-El, Mark Brunell, Jesse Armstead, Jeff George, Brandon Lloyd, Chad Morton, T.J Duckett, etc. May Dan Snyder live forever.

    _________________________________
    And you’re an idiot! Haynesworth has a contract that nobody wants to touch and you want to give up a 2nd round pick for him? I’d better there are teams out there that would want the Redskins to give THEM a 2nd round pick to take Fat Albert Haynesworth and his crippling contract.
    This is why Bucs fans are among the dumbest fans in the NFL… and I should know, I am a Bucs fan and I have to constantly read all the idiotic ramblings of a bunch of morons who mostly come from a state, that for the most part, don’t have any accredited public schools. If I had to live in Florida with all of the other moronic Buc fans I’m sure I would quit rooting for the Bucs very quickly.

  31. ninjapleazee says: Apr 6, 2010 1:18 PM

    Beezer.. you forgot MeAngelo Hall

  32. brasho says: Apr 6, 2010 1:21 PM

    After the bonus has been paid, I would bet the Lions and Jim Schwartz might be willing to take on Fat Albert and the remaining years and dollars left on his contract. They’d probably be willing to give up whatever Albert is worth…Bryant Johnson or somebody else that is wasting money and a roster spot in Detroit.

  33. Stone Steps says: Apr 6, 2010 1:23 PM

    My Bolts could use Fat Albert to replace Jamal Williams

  34. bomismorg says: Apr 6, 2010 1:25 PM

    to bigj your owner bought 13 flops and if the cap was still here washington would be dead right now.he banked the cba wasnt gonna get resolved and mortgaged the future if hes wrong.thats the only thing snyder has done right

  35. billsfanaddict says: Apr 6, 2010 1:27 PM

    i wish synder owned the patsies or cowgirls b/c i dont really mind the redskins and theyve suffered him long enough

  36. pack93z says: Apr 6, 2010 1:36 PM

    Another reason not to listen to Clayton or La Canfora… Skins trading Haynesworth now makes no sense.. a case of monkey see monkey do with those two.
    If they would look at Haynesworth’s contract.. ala Brandt… they would see that the Skins forked over 20 million plus last week.. the skins would be stupid to trade him now… unless he is that much of a cancer in the locker room.

  37. clint_taurus says: Apr 6, 2010 1:43 PM

    Clayton’s just talking out his backside and playing connect the dots…no way TN trades to get Fat Albert back; the only way they’re interested is if he cut outright and is willing to play for a very cheap contract…ie, not likely
    and to the guy who says Fat Albert only produced because of KVB:
    unfortunately, you have that backwards; KVB excelled because of the double and triple teams Fat Albert commanded and struggled last year without him
    and to the guy suggesting Fat Albert could be a Charger:
    he’s made his feelings abundantly clear about how he feels about 3-4 defenses…

  38. DC_Bengals_Fan says: Apr 6, 2010 1:50 PM

    “Why are the Redskins conceding defeat? The current front office did not acquire Haynesworth.”
    If you think the last front office was anything but a puppet to Snyder, you’re not paying attention. The question is, within a year or so, will Danny revert to his meddling ways?
    History says yes.

  39. mwcarolina says: Apr 6, 2010 2:00 PM

    if the Redskins are able to trade Albert Haynesworth to the Rams, i WANT to see the deal like this, Haynesworth and Carter for Carriker and a 2nd round pick this year and 4th or 5th rounder next year.

  40. OLDCRACKER says: Apr 6, 2010 2:06 PM

    Haynesworth would be a natural fit in Oaktown. Can you see the buffet line now??? Lol!!
    Maybe Snyder can give up their #4 pick to Oakland to take Haynesworth and his contract.

  41. MagicMan407 says: Apr 6, 2010 2:10 PM

    A trade would EASILY HAPPEN even with his contract of 4 years 48 mil. It is what Haynesworth is wanting and its obvious. His performance last year was not bad and had nothng to do with the record. How many stops did he have last season? yes he only had like 4 sacks but thats not horrible for a DT who played 13 games.

  42. MagicMan407 says: Apr 6, 2010 2:20 PM

    All these guys talking smack wish they had Haynesworth on thier team and will be the ones happy with the trade if it were to thier teams. The same guys will be the ones bashing him for taking the trade if its not to thier team. So funny you turds.

  43. AlanSaysYo says: Apr 6, 2010 2:44 PM

    Thumbs up to Shanahan for not caring about how much was invested and just getting rid of the mistake.

  44. chipwade says: Apr 6, 2010 3:36 PM

    Sweet Jesus Seahawks trade their 2nd rounder for AH. Tell Mebane to have a seat. Paul Allen can afford him.

  45. virtueandvice says: Apr 6, 2010 4:05 PM

    They just cut him a check for the bonus money they owe him so:
    A. They can cut him or trade him without any future salary cap implications.
    B. His cap number is now down to less than 7 million per season for the remainder of the contract.
    He’ll be traded by draft day.

  46. Mangy66 says: Apr 6, 2010 4:25 PM

    Oh well. At least they’re willing to admit it.
    I can name a couple dozen franchises that stick with a bad situation because they threw a grip of cash at it.
    Looks like Allen and Shanny have no problem being proactive.

  47. DeeDubb says: Apr 6, 2010 4:58 PM

    If the Skins can trade Haynesworth and get something decent in return, they’ll come out on top. Like was already stated, this regime didn’t sign him and moving a malcontent who can’t get motivated to someone who’s willing to take him on is a great move. Of course, they will have to eat alot of his contract but this deal can definitely be done. Gotta love all the idiots who take his contract for being literally $100 million. I guess they can’t let the facts get in the way of a lame insult.

    ………………………………………….
    actually they went 13-3 & to the AFC Championship game with that patchwork line
    the Brownco D-line was pretty effective in 2005 & the defense was pretty solid till about mid-season 2006 when the wheels fell off
