For now, the Redskins appear content to hold on to Albert Haynesworth and whatever value he still holds when player transactions are allowed. Of course, there’s no sure thing, and many wouldn’t be shocked if the much-maligned Haynesworth has taken his last snap for the Redskins. If the Redskins do decide to move Haynesworth, Steve Wyche of NFL.com has connected the dots to the division-rival Eagles.
“There will be teams that are interested, and one of them could be right up the highway and in the division,” Wyche said during his live chat. “Jim Washburn was hired as Philly’s defensive line coach and he was the position coach that was able to get the most out of Haynesworth (in Tennessee).
We all know that if Haynesworth is motivated, he is a terror, which is why Washington paid him so much.” We doubt there is much behind this story because the last thing Mike Shanahan and Bruce Allen want to see is a motivated Haynesworth play against the Redskins two games a year. The only way this happens is if Haynesworth is outright released.
