Cut by the Patriots and claimed on waivers by the Bucs, defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth simply won’t be playing for Tampa on Sunday against the Texans.
Haynesworth, per Adam Schefter of ESPN, will be starting.
The Buccaneers have placed the former $100 million man on a short leash, but they nevertheless need him in the wake of the season-ending injury to Gerald McCoy. And so with Haynesworth’s self-described last chance in New England blown, he has one more last chance in Tampa.
The honeymoon could end up being shorter than a Kardashian wedding.
Yeah, the reference is a little stale. But for a guy who seems to be destined to be the subject of a reality show, it’s still fitting.
