After a rocky start to their relationship, Mike Shanahan and defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth will get to renew acquaintances soon.
Jason Reid of the Washington Post reports that Haynesworth plans to be at Washington’s minicamp from April 16-18. The pre-draft practices will be the first football work of the Shanahan era.
With Haynesworth on the trade block, his presence could prove to be a distraction. But it’s uncertain whether a trade market for Haynesworth will develop and the two sides could be stuck together.
The message Shanahan is sending his star player is unmistakable: They are ready to move on. (Or move out.) We’ll see how Haynesworth responds.
