Haynesworth It?

By Ben Linton

37 tackles. 4 sacks. 100 million dollars. Once again another dubious move by the Redskins to bring a defensive tackle named Albert Haynesworth from Tennessee to D.C. by paying him an unnecessary amount of money. The Shanahan era has gotten off to a rocky start with Haynesworth, who has not showed up to any voluntary workouts, frustrating teammates, fans, and coaches along the way.

The Redskins have tried to trade Haynesworth, but right now the market seems dry and they might be stuck with the disgruntled player. Haynesworth has expressed his displeasure in the idea of playing nose tackle in Jim Haslett’s new 3-4 defensive scheme. His absence has agitated many Redskins players, including Phillip Daniels, who spoke out and said,

“I’m here, [London] Fletcher’s here, everybody’s here. He’s got to understand that. We need him to come here, be here and show these young guys that the veterans have bought in and that we want to win games.”

From what I have heard, there is still a definite possibility that Haynesworth could play a little bit of defensive end as well as nose tackle. But when you are the most dominant nose tackle in the game and that is where you are most effective, why would you want anything more? Seriously, do you secretly wish you were a tight end or fullback? Could you be any more self-centered? You signed up for 100 million to play nose tackle, regardless of what system you are in. So go out there, shut your mouth, and play some football. Quit being a baby.
