Report: Haynesworth trade not in the works

Posted · Add Comment

The rumor mill has been abuzz with Albert Haynesworth trade talk as of late, but apparently no deal for the big defensive tackle is going down.

Adam Schefter of ESPN.com cites a “high-ranking Redskins source” that said the team is not determined to trade Haynesworth.

Reports of a deal involving the high-priced defensive tackle recently surfaced in connection with the Donovan McNabb trade that went down on Easter Sunday. The Redskins reportedly offered Big Albert to the Birds during the early stages of the trade talks.

As the top player in the 2009 free agent class, Haynesworth landed a ridiculous contract with the ‘Skins last year that included $41 million in guaranteed money.

One of the more dominant and physically-imposing defensive tackles in the NFL, Haynesworth’s been known to take plays off and stir up trouble in the locker room.
