Here’s the latest on the $100 million man, Albert Haynesworth, in list form because my brain is turning to mush. (Plus I need to put on some pants and get over to Radio City Music Hall.)
1. NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora is convinced Haynesworth will be traded today. And despite Titans coach Jeff Fisher’s protestations, La Canfora believes the most likely destination is Tennessee for a third round pick.
2. The Saints aren’t interested. Jeff Duncan of the New Orleans Times-Picayune and Jay Glazer of FOX both write the Saints don’t want Haynesworth. Glazer even used capital letters to say so:
“They have ZERO interest in Albert. ZERO!!!“
3. Both Haynesworth and the Redskins want a divorce. That doesn’t help leverage, so it behooves both sides to float rumors of any interest, even if the interest is mild. When both sides want a divorce, the trade usually happens.
