Jets are doubtful to pursue Haynesworth

The Redskins possibly have been dragging their feet regarding a possible trade of defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth due to the reality that it only requires one torn ACL to a 4-3 defensive tackle to create a much more active market for Haynesworth’s services.

In one of the last games of Week One, a defensive tackle did indeed pop an ACL, but the defensive tackle plays in a 3-4 front, not a 4-3.

And so now that the Jets have lost Kris Jenkins, would Albert Haynesworth be a candidate to replace him?

For now, it’s a proposition that a source with knowledge of the situation has characterized as doubtful.  (Another source with knowledge of the situation called it “unlikely.”)  Though there are indications that the Haynesworth camp could be interested, given the manner in which the Jets do things and the belief that he’d mesh with the coaching staff, the fact that the Jets employ a 3-4 defense makes the Jets a team for which Haynesworth most likely would not want to play, since Haynesworth has made clear his desire not to play in a 3-4 front.

(Coincidentally, Jenkins was a 4-3 defensive tackle who made the transition to the 3-4 nose tackle position after being traded from the Panthers to the Jets.)

Then there’s the question of the Jets working out a deal with the Redskins.  If the Redskins want a second-round pick, the Jets surely wouldn’t be inclined to pursue Haynesworth.

Still, with more than $30 million already paid to Haynesworth by the Redskins, the practical duration of his contract is three years and $16 million.  It’s a very reasonable number, if Haynesworth is willing to give it his all.

Again, it’s a doubtful proposition at this point that he’ll join the Jets.

    For how he played Sunday, he wouldn’t fetch a day 2 draft pick.

    Go ahead FatMouth Ryan, sign another ME first player to your overrated squad.
    8-8 for the Jesters
    Fatmouth coach that can’t back up his words
    CB that got abused badly by Flacco
    Fans that run their mouth like their coach, and then hide when their team(offense mostly) gets exposed as pretenders
    An overated RB that can’t catch or hold on to the football
    A QB that can’t throw the football
    Soft NT that is lost for the year….again
    An OC that can’t scheme or coach
    Did I mention fans that write checks their a$$ can’t cash?
    A stepchild playing in the city’s favorite team stadium (GIANTS)
    I LOVE IT!

    That was a good one Mike. Maybe you should head for open mic night at the local comedy club. Thanks for the laugh.

    Why trade someone who hates the 3-4….but at this point maybe Haynesworth needs a fresh start. Ryan is among the better coaches with players….he should be more concerned with how Brady is going to dismantle them.

    i hope he does trade for Haynesworth and being a Redskins fan i even lower my standards and would ask for Joe McKnight.
