Could the Buccaneers and Albert Haynesworth be a Fit?

There appears to be no end to the issues of Albert Haynesworth clashing with the Redskins and coach Mike Shanahan. If the Skins can find a trade partner, they should, and the latest team on the list that could have an interest is Tampa Bay. Pro Football Talk has a piece on the Bucs maybe being the team to take on Haynesworth, who hasn’t been able to take the field much in camp for a variety of reasons.

Appearing on a local radio station, Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune suggested Monday night that the a trade to the Bucs isn’t as crazy as it sounds.

“It makes a great deal of sense and here’s why,” Cummings said, via “Don’t forget, the Buccaneers were the team that offered Albert Haynesworth more money than anybody else in the NFL last year. A lot of people forget that — conveniently want to ignore that fact. . . .

‘You know what, I think it makes all kinds of sense,” Cummings said, seemingly warming up to the idea on the fly. “It’s a ballsy move. I don’t know if he’s going to do it. They do want to be young here more than anything. But you know what, if Stylez White can’t wake up in these last two preseason games and show them what he’s got, why not? Go give it a shot. I mean, money really is not an issue. People don’t want to believe that here. Everybody, you know, on your end of things here in Tampa Bay wants to keep talking about money here and money there and how much the Glazers are or are not spending. I can tell you right now, if they think can get Albert Haynesworth, and it ends up becoming a wash in terms of what the payroll is, they’ll do it. And they’ll go out and get him. And you know what, he’ll make the team a better football team in a hurry.”
