The Trade watch for Redskins Haynesworth continues

The ongoing soap opera surrounding Albert Haynesworth and the Redskins could very well end today, according to executives around the NFL.

Earlier this morning, NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora mentioned that Albert Haynesworth’s name “comes up” during discussions regarding players that could potentially be traded by today’s 4pm trade deadline. La Canfora also later reported that the Redskins may have decreased their asking price for parting with Haynesworth, long rumored to be a 2nd round pick.

It bears noting that Redskins GM Bruce Allen told NBC’s Andrea Kramer that Haynesworth will remain a member of the Redskins after the trade deadline, with head coach Mike Shanahan offering somewhat of a confirmation of this by saying: “There’s a pretty good chance, though, that he won’t be traded.”

Regardless, this trade chatter still remains worth watching. As Shanahan himself said: “You just never know.” While the Redskins brass may be saying all the “right things” in public, Haynesworth remains firmly implanted in Shanahan’s dog house, and it’s apparent that the Redskins would rather move on without Haynesworth than to cater to his demands and feelings.

    The idea of trading Hayneswoth has had me drooling for a good long while now, but the Redskins have a pretty big investment in his financial good fortune, and with that should come a commitment from him to play to the best of his abilities, and for the most time he can be on the field.
    Yes, when he wants to be a force, there’s probably none better, but “Fat Albert” hasn’t shown anyone at Redskins Park that he wants to do anything more than annoy the coaches, and sit back on his “assets” while his teammates try to win a Super Bowl ring for him to brag about!
    Truly, this has turned out to be the worst investment Mr. Snyder has made since taking ownership of the Redskins organization. (And I thought “Freon Dion” was a bad investment!) But never-the-less, he took the money, the offer was made, and accepted by his taking the money, so it’s time for “Haynes-worthless” to Man the *@%< up, do the practices, do the drills, strengthen up that big behind of his, and accept the fact that he's a Redskin for the next few years, and stop acting like he's some spoiled prepubescent brat who'll only play if he gets his way! If he's like most of us, he wasn't born rich, so start appreciating what he has, and start working hard for it! This soap opera has gone on long enough!
