    Total headcase but for about $5 M per year you could have one of the best defensive players in football on your team for three years.

    If used right he could be a Ngata type player, 3-4 end, 4-3 DT.

    Albert Haynesworth
    "Albert Haynesworth is expected to remain on the trade block after being offered up by the Redskins in talks with the Eagles.

    The Redskins recently paid Haynesworth a $21M option bonus. According to NFL.com's Jason La Canfora, Haynesworth has "not made a good first impression" on Mike Shanahan after clashing with Skins coaches last year
    "

    Gotta wonder about paying a $21 million :eek: option bonus for a guy you're trying to get rid of.

    He supposedly doesn't like playing in a reactionary Defense - he'd hate our two gap.

    Be a heck of a coup though for the right price.

    They are not going to dump him after paying a 21 million dollar option bonus. Shanahan will find a way to use him.

    Shanny is, he's trying to get additional picks to work with.

    Is getting supplemental draft picks really worth flushing 21 million dollars down the toilet? I think Shanahan obviously is in charge of the football side of operations, but Snyder could hardly be happy with losing that MUCH money after only 1 season of Haynesworth.

    I think Shanahan has to live with Haynesworth for the financial considerations. And he's still a tremendous football talent even if he hasn't quite 'bought in yet' to what Shanahan is selling.

    Agreed $21,000,000 is not worth a draft pick or two. They probably should have declined the option and released him if they don't want him on their team. So if they do trade him they would have paid him $32 million for one year of service only to have the team wind up with a 4-12 record

    The only guaranteed payments due him at this point are 2010 & 2011 salaries, a total of just $9 million combined. The Redskins already ate the really ugly parts of the contract.

    Shanahan is smart enough to know that if the Redskins and in particular,Haynesworth has double digit sacks and an all-pro year in 2010, he could get some pretty good deals next season from other teams desperat for defensive line help...right now Haynesworth is an early bust in Washington and an injured one at that.

    That's a very expen$ive gamble, likely one that isn't going to pay off. I know Snyder likes to throw away his money but it looks like they just blew a chance to get out of a very stupid contract right before it got very stupid.

    Didn't he gripe this offseason about the Redskins switch to a 34? Pretty sure he said that while not attending Redskins OTAs.

    I wouldn't take him for a 7th rounder and 4 million a year. He's a lazy piece of crap.

    IDK. First, rumor was that Snyder was trying to deal Haynesworth for McNabb but the Iggles took the picks instead. Second, the Pats played a lot more 4-3 sub packages in 2009 and appear to be stocking up on DTs as if they're going to continue that trend. It might be a better fit than it seems at first glance, if the draft-pick price is right.

    Perhaps. If we could get Dan to bite on AD and maybe our#44. It actually makes sense. AD would be the only 3-4 LB with experience.

    He's also got a huge bonus coming up in 2013, which will force either an outright cut or a renogotiation.

    A 3 year rental isn't bad, but I don't think Snyder could swallow losing that much money on his 'new toy' and not at least getting to see him play another year before passing judgment that he just won't fit in with the team.

    He was likely being talked about PRIOR to that bonus being paid, if he has been. Not paying a "guaranteed" option bonus simply results in that money becoming guaranteed in the form of salary...as was the case in Seymour's contract language...which means any team who traded for him would be responsible for almost $25M this season as well as $9M more if they kept him for 2011 and 2012 or an average cost of $11M+ over the next 3 years. Remember, because Philly had no interest in him the financials never got discussed.

    Even Snyder wouldn't pay $21M for Haynesworth to play for someone else and have to live with the egg on his face for having paid him $32M for one disappointing season.

    So the best guess is if he remains available it's because his option bonus wasn't paid and that means it would be the responsibility of whichever team he plays for this season...
