Albert Haynesworth arrives in D.C., plans meeting with Shanahan

After an offseason of drama, Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth is apparently in town and ready to report to training camp with the rest of his teammates on Thursday.

Jason Reid of the Washington Post reports that Haynesworth has arrived, is ready to work and is optimistic after good conversations with teammates.

Up next for Haynesworth, he hopes, is a good conversation with coach Mike Shanahan, who said recently that the team would move on without Haynesworth if Haynesworth wouldn’t buy into the system.

Chris Russell of ESPN Radio reports that Haynesworth will reach out to Shanahan today in an attempt to clear the air before training camp starts. According to Russell, Haynesworth is in good shape and has lost at least 40 pounds.

Which only a cynic would interpret as an attempt to get down to the size of a 3-4 defensive end, and not a nose tackle.

    If those 40 pounds are off the 350 pounds NFL.com says he used to weigh he is still not at the defensive end level. That also only puts him a little below Casey Hampton and Kelly Greg- 2 other nose tackles.
    PFT- stirring the pot to make mountains out of molehills.

    He may have lost 40 pounds, but it is entirely likely that he gained 50 pounds in the offseason before getting ready for camp. His agent initially reported that weight loss figure – pun intended – but NFL Agent Math is fuzzy like that. Sort of like when an electronics store marks prices up to full retail value before screaming that they will be slashing prices by 25% in a mega sale.
    And ESPN 980 in DC is owned by Dan Snyder’s Red Zebra Broadcasting, so anything coming out of there is unadulterated spin.

    Honestly, I hope that he shows up in shape. It’s really too bad that we learned his true colors this off season with his attitude towards the team and all his antics. I thought Trotter and Stubblefoeld were our biggest busts, but AH is probably the biggest FA bust we have ever had.

    if he buys in and is ready to stomp on Gurode’s head skin’s fans will forget about this off-season. We waited way too long for something good to happen in d.c.
    We want results. Dont matter how they come.
    HAIL SUCKA!!

    Stir it up, it’s good for business..
    Haynesworth ought to shut up, do what he’s told and enjoy it, or pretend he does for the sake of the team’s success. Hopefully he will. if he performs, it will all be forgotten by Labor Day. until next offseason, that is.

    Fat Albert is only losing weight, so that he i sto small to be a nose tackle. So there you have it, he lost weight out of spite.

  8. Quirt Evans says: Jul 28, 2010 10:48 AM

    Please. He said he doesn’t want to be a nose tackle. Nose tackles get beat up. Lighter nose tackles get pushed around. The man isn’t losing 40 pounds off his previous playing weight because he thinks it would make him a better nose tackle.
    Florio’s comment is spot on. Snarky, but spot on.

    Better take your rabies shot, Albert.

    Apparently the NT they got from Carolina, Maake Kemunatu, is looking great. He was at Redskins Park all offseason and the Skins sent their strength/conditioning coach out to Hawaii to work with Maake. He missed all of last year with an achilles injury, but is said to be nearing full health.
    Additionally, if Haynesworth has lost 40 lbs, putting him in the 310-330lb range. He’d make a heck of a 3-4 DE. Richard Seymour, one of the best 3-4 DE’s in the NFL, is 310 lbs. With Albert’s athleticism, he’d tear it up as a DE in a 3-4, probably moving to NT on occasion. That is if he’s still on the team come September and hasn’t been shot by Shanahan.

    Chris Russell needs to loose a good 140 pounds himself.. that turd needs to leave the airwaves.

    Anybody who thinks that 980 is just Dan Snyder’s propaganda wing doesn’t listen to the radio station. Steve Czaban is hated by skins fans and team employees alike because he dared question Joe Jackson Gibbs’ dedication to the team. He regularly pisses off players and coaches of the organization by telling them how it is. He beefed openly with Mark Brunell and Jim Zorn.
    Also, take Tony. Say what you will about Kornheiser, but regardless of how you feel about the guy, it’s undeniable that he would not put himself in position to be dictated to by Dan Snyder.
    Larry Michael is the team propaganda wing, not the radio station.

    hey big bill…nice comment. Why dont you give me your address and I will take my 6’6″ 265 lbs frame and stomp on your face too. Gurode was dominating that fat ass all game long and fat albert had to resort to the worst form of play to get back at him. They should have thrown him out of the league for good that piece of crap.
    What a Loser…..secondly, we have dominated you SUCKAS as you say for the last 10 yrs and plan on doing the same for the next 10 yrs. so get used to it punk!!!

    Wrong headline
    Should be
    Albert Haynesworth arrives in D.C., plans on eating Shanahan
    Boysroll – simmer down.
    I didnt allow your requested username (Boys make me drool) for a reason.
    Don’t make me ban you.

  20. longestlegs says: Jul 28, 2010 1:33 PM

    Czaben is a know nothing idiot. Can’t stand that dude. Or anyone on 980 for that matter. What an utterly usely cast of radio personalities, devoid of optimism or football knowledge.

  21. Captain Canuck says: Jul 28, 2010 1:37 PM

    Somebody actually figured out how to make Haynesworth lose weight. That, in and of itself, is incredible to me.
