|7/28/2011 11:27:00 AM||Description: The Washington Redskins have traded disgruntled defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth to the New England Patriots for a fifth-round pick in 2013.
SOURCE: WASHINGTON POST||Insight: Haynesworth's departure doesn't come as a surprise as he clashed with Coach Mike Shanahan over the player's unwillingness to play nose tackle in the 3-4 defense. Interestingly enough, the Patriots run a 3-4 scheme as well.
|7/21/2011 2:14:00 PM||Description: According to ESPN 980'?s Washington Redskins insider Chris Russell, defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth plans on showing up for the start of the Redskins training camp.
SOURCE: ESPN 980||Insight: A source told Russell 'of course he will' show up. After last years debacle between Haynesworth and head coach Mike Shanahan regarding his conditioning, let's all hope he can pass the test the first time. Don't get too excited, there's still plenty of time for him to screw up.|
|7/7/2011 12:58:00 PM||Description: The Washington Redskins will not release DL Albert Haynesworth, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
SOURCE: PHILLY SPORTS DAILY||Insight: 'They are not going to cut him,' said the source. 'If anyone wants him it is going to have to be by trade. Because if they cut him, that's giving him his way.' Haynesworth'?s contract will pay him a guaranteed $5.4 million this season. That is reason enough for the Redskins to exhaust all trade options before cutting him loose. And there is apparently extra motivation to go in that direction as well.|
|5/19/2011 10:59:00 AM||Description: Wrote a satire on Albert Haynesworth. CBSSports.com bosses said 'Nice job, but no go, we can't do a satire.' New York Times editor admitted that the Times aren't called the Grey Old Lady for nothing and said they couldn't run this either. All the better. The editor at NFL Touchdown was cool with it (probably because he is the same guy who wrote the piece). Here it is below:
The NFL lockout is impacting different players in different ways. For some, personal finances will soon become an issue. Others aren't able to rehab injuries at their team's facility. Players scheduled to hit free agency in 2011 are in serious limbo.
Albert Haynesworth is no exception to the victimization. Amidst the labor strife, the Redskins defensive tackle finds himself wallowing in self-grief. With Redskins players barred from the team's facility, Haynesworth is unable to stage any sort of offseason protest.
'This time of year, Albert is normally giddy with excitement,' a source close to the Haynesworth family said. 'Offseason workouts are on the horizon, voluntary minicamps '" all those things provide Albert with a chance to enact some sort of holdout and really stick it to his coaches and teammates. That's what really gets the big guy going, really instills his sense of self-worth.'
But with the lockout leaving him nothing to holdout from, he finds himself grasping for new ways to be a jerk.
He gave road rage a try, alleging punching a DC motorist during a dispute back in February. But his trial for that isn't until May 26. And besides, anyone who has ever experienced the thrill of stomping your cleat into another man's face knows that a simple assault charge does little to scratch your malevolent itch after that. Haynesworth is said to be open to the idea of simply getting even fatter than usual this spring.
Abusing his body might prove a point once he and his teammates are allowed back at work. But after being too fat last summer to even finish a simple running drill that ESPN radio personality Mike Golic was able to complete (without any training, no less) it's doubtful another broken scale this summer would yield the kind of negative attention Haynesworth needs.

|2/15/2011 3:32:00 PM||Description: Redskins DT Albert Haynesworth has been accused of sexual assault after an incident at the W Hotel in Washington DC. Haynesworth immediately denied any wrongdoing through his agent, and now NBCWashington has revealed the specifics of the allegation.
According to a police report obtained by NBC Washington, the waitress stated that her hands were full carrying glasses as she was clearing the table at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday.
"She said that 'Subject 1'? tried to pay his bill by giving her his credit card, but he asked if it was OK to stick the card in her blouse near her breast area. She nodded her head yes and, according to the report, she said he then placed the card into her blouse gently, sliding the card further into her left side of the blouse and then started to caress her breast."
Apparently 'Subject 1'? is also known as the fat guy in the 92 jersey who is laying down on the field for some reason. So where did Haynesworth go wrong in this encounter? Let's go to the videotape.

|1/21/2011 10:31:00 AM||Description: According to NFL Network's Jason La Canfora, with the Eagles signing Jim Washburn to coach the defensive line, current Redskins DL Albert Haynesworth says he would take less money to play in Philly.||Insight: Haynesworth had his best years under Washburn in Tennessee, but we don't know if the Eagles would want to put up with a guy who gives it all one week and takes plays off the next. Washington has been saying all the right things with Haynesworth still being a part of the team in 2011, but a trade or release is expected. The Eagles do have a need for more pass rushers and Haynesworth would relish a chance to go back to a 4-3 defense.|
|1/13/2011 3:55:00 PM||Description: The Redskins still hope DL Albert Haynesworth can pan out as productive member of the team in 2011.
SOURCE: TWITTER ||Insight: GM Bruce Allen made the comment, but this is more of a way to try and talk Haynesworth up for a potential trade. We just can't imagine a scenario where Haynesworth and the coaches are happy he is on the roster next year. Washington will do all they can to trade him, even if it's for a late round pick. If not, he's sure to be cut.|

SOURCE: TWITTER ||Insight: It's not concrete since Haynesworth is expected to appeal the decision. Mike Shanahan made the decision to deactivate a healthy Haynesworth for Week Thirteen after Haynesworth missed a team meeting and then showed up to Friday's practice hungover. Shanahan and Haynesworth had been at odds all year, starting with Haynesworth reluctance to convert to a 3-4 defense after having played in a base 4-3 all his career. If Haynesworth year is over, he will have ended the season with just 16 tackles and 2.5 sacks in eight games. Looks like he will be looking for a new team next offseason.|
