    USA Today | The Huddle | Buccaneers Release Albert Haynesworth

    The Pats went 8-0 after letting him go and the Bucs went 0-8 after picking him up

    Lets hope the Jets grab him

    With the way his contract was structured it wouldn't have mattered how well Haynesworth played last year - he was going to be cut regardless.

    Haynesworth let his ego get in the way of a smart business decision; he was more interested in the headline making record deal than in how much of that money he would ever see. His agent was more than willing to oblige, as he got to use that as marketing for when it came time for other players to choose what agent they would sign with.

    I still wonder if this guy can ever figure it out. He was a fat mess even after weeks of practice. The guy got his money and never looked back.

    As Marvin Hagler said 'It's real hard to get up at 5am & run 5 miles when you're in a 4 post bed wearing silk pyjamas'

    Still what if he could come back and play a similar role to Warren or Ellis with much more upside....

    Fat Albert... it was nice knowing yee.

    Funny how we all sit here and ridicule the guy calling him all kind of names,when in reality he has collected triple digit millions the past several years and has dogged it all along.

    Who is laughing more or laughing last?...us or Al?

    Seems like Haynesworth's most lasting contribution since he left Tennessee is that he was so bad that even Daniel Snyder had to step back and question the wisdom of giving huge money to UFAs. That's quite a feat.

    The only person being ridiculed for how much money Haynesworth made is Dan Snyder.

    Albert won't be laughing last. Who actually thinks he'll wisely invest all that money? He'll be broke in no time, and then what's he going to do?
