Report: Albert Haynesworth, trade talks continue

The Albert Haynesworth trade-talk rumor-reports haven't gone away and, really, why would you expect them to just because the Redskins beat the Cowboys?

In a replay of last week, ESPN's Chris Mortensen (via Pro Football Talk), reported that the Redskins "could try" to trade Haynesworth through Tuesday and the Tennessee Titans, Haynesworth's former team, remain the most likely partner.

Trade cannot come soon enough. Need to put this behind us as soon as possible and not take any chance on this worthless distraction.

Darn those rumors! lol

I saw Haynesworth pacing back and forth at the sidelines during the game.. and he was isolating himself from a group of his players whom were apparently discussing the game plan. That was embarrassing to see. And a bit depressing.

BTW- Orakpo rocks!

Chris Mortensen "could try" to come up with a real story.

Forget the pick.

Does Tennessee have any young OL or OLB that we could get back for Haynesworth?

trade him to the Cowboys. For Alex Barron. That way both teams lose

I live in Nashville and I find it amusing to see all the hand wringing
over Albert. If you look at the history of personnel moves of the Titans over the years they have been here it has been mostly positive. They invested heavily in Yancy Thigpen and Dale Carter
in free agency and let Jon Runyan get away over money. Other
than that they have been darned smart about their roster. Albert
has had commitment problems throughout his career, so it should be no surprise that he is a bust for the Skins. After all, how often can you get a defensive tackle that costs you several hundred thousand dollars per defensive series. That doesn't include the plays he takes off. The feeling here is that a fourth
round pick for him is generous. The plus is that you clucks have paid him most of his guaranteed money. Good luck ya'll

Albert should be tried and convicted of larcerny, he is a typical example of why guaranteed contracts and bonuses are bad in pro sports, what a fat chump!!! He looked gassed and about to pass out after just a couple of plays.

I concur with zimife1999! They should make his sorry, lazy butt sell hotdogs during the game! For his behavior, Haynesworth doesn't deserve to wear the uniform of his team--perhaps hawking hotdogs is more suitable for him.

If Daddy Moneybags will send him ANYWHERE, I would be happy to DRIVE HIM THERE! I admire Coach Shanahan for not backing down. He is acting like a responsible parent when a naughty brat of a kid misbehaves and Haynesworth needs to be taught a lesson!
