Haynesworth Indicted (Updated)

From Jason Reid:

Washington Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth was indicted Thursday on two misdemeanor traffic charges stemming from a December accident in Tennessee which another driver was seriously injured.

A Williamson County, Tenn., grand jury handed down the indictment on charges of reckless driving and having an expired registration. Reckless driving carries a maximum punishment of six months in jail and a $500 fine, and Haynesworth could receive another 30 days in jail and $50 fine for the other charge, according to the district attorney's office.

Haynesworth, a two-time all-pro performer with the Tennessee Titans who signed with the Redskins on Feb. 27, was released after surrendering Wednesday. Haynesworth, who plans to attend the start of Washington's offseason conditioning program Monday, is scheduled to be arraigned March 30. He does not have to appear in court.

Haynesworth was unavailable for comment, and his agent, Chad Speck, declined to comment. A phone message left for Haynesworth's attorney, Glenn Funk, was not immediately returned, and the Redskins did not comment.

The grand jury, whose proceedings are secret, had been expected to meet Monday, and Kim Helper, the Williamson County district attorney, released its findings yesterday.

"The prosecution [of Haynesworth] is moving forward, but it's way too early in the process to speculate on" what the outcome could be, Helper said. "It's really hard for me to speculate in a general sense. Whenever you're talking about a criminal case, there are a lot of factors that go into any negotiation. You would look at someone's criminal history, and the facts and circumstance that come into it, but every [case] is different."

Corey Edmondson suffered "severe injuries" that left him disabled after the accident that occurred on Dec. 13, Edmondson's attorney, Jon Perry, said. Four days before the accident, Haynesworth received 30 days probation and was fined $1,000 in court fees after he reportedly was driving in excess of 100 mph on an Interstate highway. Law enforcement officials that responded to the accident did not cite Haynesworth.

At his introductory news conference at Redskins Park, Haynesworth addressed the anger management issues he has struggled to overcome since he was a standout at the University of Tennessee. He was suspended for an NFL-record five games in 2006 for an incident in which he stomped on the head of Dallas Cowboys center Andre Gurode during a game.

After he knocked off Gurode's helmet, Haynesworth kicked and stomped on Gurode's face, leading to Gurode receiving 30 stitches. Other incidents involving Haynesworth were not immediately revealed publicly because they occurred during practice.

During his sophomore season with the Volunteers, Haynesworth fought with a teammate, left practice and came back carrying a long pole. Phillip Fulmer, the Volunteers' coach at the time, stopped Haynesworth. In training camp with the Titans in 2003, Haynesworth reportedly kicked center Justin Hartwig in the chest during an altercation at practice. Charges from a road rage incident in 2006 were dismissed.

Okay, the good thing about a four game suspension is that it saves one-fourth of his salary and reduces his cap hit. With the savings, Vinny can go out and hire someone who can drive with his pockets straight. We can probably get a 35 year-old corner with bad knees.

Don Banks has the Skins taking Andre Smith at #13, with Clay Matthews taken at #15 and Michael Oher dropping completely out of the 1st round...

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2009/writers/don_banks/03/12/mock1/index.html?eref=T1

If this scenario occurs, then the Skins would be wise to trade down (if possible). I'm not sure if I like any of those guys at #13. The way this draft is shaping up -- it could be difficult to trade down, because there might not be any good prospects available as trade bait.

Oh please, since when does anyone care about misdemeanor traffic offenses? Yeah, the shocking headline of "Haynesworth Indicted" would make you think he actually did something terrible, but this is a stupid traffic offense. Ever been pulled over for speeding, or just being a tubby dork, Jason? Another example of tabloid journalism by this hack.

that is not true, I went to college with McCants and we ran track together and worked out everymorning at 6am in the weight room. so i have talked to him and I assure you that your response is not true.

Thank you very much, please pick your face up of the floor and move along.

Dude, I had to laugh at the 'pick up your face comment' That was funny as SJK!

But on a serious note and out of 4th grade.

I am talking about McCants professional carrer with the Washington Redskins. Not Del State.

If you remember, his true profession was an artist and he just had this part time job as a profeesional football player to 'pay the bills'. So, since it was a part time job he didn't feel the need to immerse himself constantly and consistently to be a starter and flourish.


No where in your statement did you say you spoke with him recently and he told you a complete different story. And if he did, you should expund on it. Because I don't see the dude playing anymore. Maybe he is a full time artist selling paintings like Piccaso........

http://www.tennessean.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=200990212014

Sounds like Haynesworth is still a little immature and lacks patience when it comes to driving...

The complication is Haynesworth is already on probation for speeding (103 mph) on a highway.

My guess is he pays the fines and hopefully learns a lesson to focus his aggressive [driving] tendencies only on the football field.

oh yeah 4th, the reason I question work ethic is because when we was in college the joker used to call my room at 6am to wake me up to go lift weights. we wasnt even required to lift weights that early and he had his own key to the weight room, dont ask me how he got it.

that is my point that i am trying to make, he would work out by himself in the weight room. so work ethic was never a problem but maybe the special teams we can run with.

how about we agree on special teams and not work ethic.

Can you explain to me the connection that you see between these two charges -- misdemeanors -- and character?

I remember a few years ago when Sean Taylor was arrested, charged, and acquitted. What did that tell us about his character?

Posted by: talent_evaluator+++


So quick to jump to negative conclusions, T_E.?

I THINK by "character," joeboggs meant a "personality," kind of a wacky fun guy who can pass a car, drive it off the road, then do ten minutes about it at training camp, making appropriate car noises to boot.

I mean it's not like Albert stopped, came back and stomped on the guy's face or nuthin' you know?

Stop being so durn glass half empty.

As for your Taylor question, I think what it tells us is he was a fun-loving scamp who liked to draw down on no-goodnicks who swiped his stuff, and who was later Sainted when he was in the wrong place at the wrong time and got tragically murdered for it.

He'll play and do well.

He's a redskin now and we need him suited up and ready from day one.

The real issue is, will the guys around Prince Albert beat their guy if he is double-teamed and thus, make acquiring him a good idea?

Can he create the pressure that'll cause erratic throws that become interceptions or tipped passes--that's why Hall was signed?

Will he shut down Jacobs in late November during a playoff push?

I want these questions answered as the driving '....indictment....' issue ain't nothing but a thang.

This is a good question, because if the opposing team's OLine does not fear our DEs then they will double & triple team AH all day. If our DEs can't wreak havoc against opposing teams tackles, then AH's impact on the game is drastically reduced.

13. Washington Redskins (8-8)

Kiper pick: Andre Smith -- Smith has to manage his weight in order to remain on the left side. If he doesn't, he's a mauler at right tackle who could really assist the running game and do the job at that spot in pass protection. Hopefully, he'll maximize his skills in the NFL by paying more attention to detail. If he doesn't, you are looking at a major bust.
McShay pick: Michael Oher, OT, Mississippi -- The Redskins' offensive line is aging in a hurry, and offensive tackles who move like Oher do not last long on draft day, which is why it won't shock us if he's gone in the first half of the first round. Oher is inconsistent but extremely talented.

This is vengeance, hillbilly style. Nice little trick, Tessessee. Btw Tennessee, is that how you treat heroes as they move on?

Redskins fans, Albert Haynesworth will be one helluva Redskin. We're in for nearly a decade of Albert ~ just as we had a decade of Dave Butz, and of Jim Lachey, and for that matter of Joe Gibbs I.

Albert may not win any ballgames next year single-handedly, but he'll hold up his end. And if everybody else kicks butt for Zorn-Blache-Buges-Smith ~ then the 'Skins will be fun to watch, 11-5 at worst and could go 13-3. Playoffs, and who knows?

OK, so based on your logic, anyone who ever was at fault in a traffic accident that resulted in injuries to another person should face what? The chair? Lethal injection? A firing squad? There is a reason these type of crimes are misdemeanors and not felonies. How about a 50 year old woman who negligently runs a red light and kills another motorist? Let's not be selective with how you'd like to apply your justice. Ever been pulled over for speeding yourself? Do you think it would be right for your employer to fire you over that? If everyone who ever did something illegal while driving was looked at this way, more than half the population would be in jail. Anyone who thinks this is the end of the world needs a serious dose of reality. It hasn't been a big deal for months, and it's not a big deal now. It simply hits the news cycle now because the DA down there wants to see his/her name in the paper, so indicting someone on a misdemeanor traffic offense instead of simply offering the case based on prosecutor's info as is standard, gets the headline-driven tabloid media in a frenzy.

Andre Smith (top 5 talent easy)
Maualuga (top 10 talent)
Cushing (around 10-15, so respectable)
Tyson Jackson (early 2nd round talent)
Laurinitaus (I see him as a late 2nd round talent. He'll be solid but not spectacular.)

AH won't get jail time unless he goes to court and pulls a Mike Tyson-like act that he isn't remorseful.

So, what we are looking at is a suspended license and a fine. With a civil lawsuit no doubt to follow.

SportsGuru/D!ckHead/other aliases you've posted under:

First, if you think Portis sucks as a RB, you must have never watched a game. The guy is a stud, ask any player he's played with or against, ask any real expert (I mean an actual expert, not some hack beat reporter who never wore a set of pads in his life, and whose only sport is pocket pool), ask anyone who watches football.

Second, even though I would argue that most accidents when someone gets hurt are really "simple" traffic tickets, it really makes no difference what "usually" is the case. What has "actually" happened here is 2 simple misdemeanor traffic tickets. That is a stipulated fact, so what is your point again?

".................Other incidents involving Haynesworth were not immediately revealed publicly because they occurred during practice.

During his sophomore season with the Volunteers, Haynesworth fought with a teammate, left practice and came back carrying a long pole. Phillip Fulmer, the Volunteers' coach at the time, stopped Haynesworth. In training camp with the Titans in 2003, Haynesworth reportedly kicked center Justin Hartwig in the chest during an altercation at practice. Charges from a road rage incident in 2006 were dismissed.

You can thank MADD not Williamson County. California treats speeding over 100mph in almost the same way as a DUI. Yes, a misdemeanor.

The problem is not about being inside Albert's car. It's about being on the road the same time he is.

The way to handle it is for him to come to practice 15 minutes before anyone else is in the parking lot and for him not to leave until all the other cars are out of the lot for about 10-15 minutes, depending on how fast he's planning to drive home.

Whether the police cited him at the scene is immaterial. The evidence collected by an accident reconstruction team would determine if charges are brought. And to do that requires a grand jury in some states even if its a misdemeanor.

Since he already was on probation this will likely result in a license suspension. But given how much the Skins are paying him he can afford to hire a limo and driver. If he is convicted he probably still won't go to jail. But a reckless driving conviction that had resulted in an accident could open him up to being sued for pretty much everything he's got. Which is probably what the guys atty wants.

Posted by: KokoMike | March 12, 2009 6:34 PM

Mike,

The problem is not about being inside Albert's car. It's about being on the road the same time he is.

The way to handle it is for him to come to practice 15 minutes before anyone else is in the parking lot and for him not to leave until all the other cars are out of the lot for about 10-15 minutes, depending on how fast he's planning to drive home.

I don't care if he has an "attitude" that he takes into games ... but getting carried away can cause key penalties. Off the field shenanigans carry suspensions.

AND THAT IS WHAT got Petitbone, Gibbs, and his team the most angry with Dexter Manley. NOT HIS PROBLEM, but how and WHEN he dealt with it. Getting suspended in the middle of the season when he was needed the most ... and he was needed!!!

This guy could make this team even angrier. There is such a thing as A STOOPID THUG.

[CARDINALS SHOPPING BOLDIN
Posted by Mike Florio on March 12, 2009, 3:59 p.m.

Kurt Warner might get to keep his $2 million, after all.

A league source tells us that the Arizona Cardinals are shopping receiver Anquan Boldin to potential trade partners.

Warner recently has suggested that he’d devote a portion of his salary to signing Boldin to a new contract. (We don’t think Warner really means it.)

Boldin, a six-year veteran, is signed through 2010. He has wanted for roughly a year a significant increase from his current range of $2.5 million to $3 million.

With teammate Larry Fitzgerald at $10 million per year, Boldin is believed to want at least $9 million annually.

Boldin previously has requested a trade. At one point after the Super Bowl, Boldin said that he would not sign a new deal with the Cardinals, and that he wanted to be dealt to a new team. More recently, he had softened in his position, expressing a willingness to consider a new long-term contract to stay with the team.]

Philly has, what 11 picks? Two in the first round.

This could* be bad for the rest of the East. Of course, he could* go to the AFC. Perhaps the Pats?

Well, Haynesworth did what he did and that's that. I'm quite sure there will be some punishment from Goddell. Lets get back to the task at hand. Since the experts have us taking either Smith or Oher at 13. That leaves SLB abd LDE open and in need of filling fast. With only four or five picks this year in the draft and none soon enough after pick one to get someone talented enough to start day 1. Here is a list of guys Vinny should be looking at for DE Bertrand Berry, Vonnie Holiday, Will Montgomery and for SLB Cato June or Angelo Crowell. While the the first two I mentioned have quite some time in the league under their belt . They provide the necessary quick fix and lack of injury problems the current folks on Vinny's list seem to have. Montgomery is only five years in and showed much promise for the Packers last year from what I've read. As for the SLB position I think we could use either guy and be set for some years barring injury or the scary bust factor. June is a hometown kid and was productive with the Colts and with the Bucs somewhat. Crowell I think may be a better fit due to the fact he's built a little better for that side.

Yes, the DA is looking for publicity to show that something was done about the nefarious deed. The Grand Jury was probably called to see if there was cause for a felony indictment.

Apparently not. So, it will likely end up as a civil suit with fewer grounds / cause for the plaintiff but a huge stimulus going to the lawyers.

It is cause for concern for the Redskins. Because it isn't the first time. Its not like an aberration.

Yes, its true Sonny, Billy, (not Riggo that I know of?) were certainly caught DUI back before the really stringent laws came out. Would the be suspended today?

Possibly.

But they didn't leave the practice field to find a "pole" to use as a weapon against someone. They didn't drive over 100 mph within days of a previous conviction. They didn't kick anyone in the face with their helmet off ... both wore helmets with the thin single bar ... easy targets for someone like Haynesworth.

I think they need to trade. It would be nice if Detroit would be willing trade some of their lower picks ... they will likely use them all ... very, very careful after the Matt Millen debacle.

Perhaps they can wrangle some extra picks from New England with a swap of 13 for 23 and maybe some future picks for #34 as well. I guess I believe they need a group of picks between the very end of the 1st and the beginning of the second to meet their needs ...

Those little punks may or may not have had anger problems, but Haynesworth's behavior is fundamentally different than theirs. Greed was the primary motivation for those punks, not revenge or anger. I don't see any examples of Haynesworth trying to take something that didn't belong to him.

Washington Redskins: B

A lot of teams use free agency as a jumping-off spot for the draft. Under Dan Snyder's reign, the Redskins have used the draft as more of an offseason diversion.

First of all, let me say that Albert Haynesworth is one of the most dominant defensive tackles we've seen in years. When he was in the lineup, the Titans were an elite defense. When he was out because of injury, the defense was pedestrian.

My fear with Haynesworth is that he had the best two years of his career when the Titans (and the rest of the league) were dangling that lucrative carrot in front of him. How will Haynesworth perform with a full bank account?

Well, we're about to find out. But honestly, signing DeAngelo Hall to a long-term contract is the bigger risk. He was a divisive force in the Falcons' locker room and he obviously didn't make it with the Raiders. He performed well on a $500,000 deal in half a season -- and the Redskins guaranteed him $22.5 million. The Redskins have been down this road before -- and it never works.

Haynesworth has a reputation for making life easy on his fellow defensive ends, but the Redskins aren't offering him much in Andre Carter and the aging Phillip Daniels.

Demetric Evans was actually a decent pass-rusher, but the Redskins let him get away. You better hit on a pass-rusher with that No. 13 pick, in part, because it will be Sunday afternoon before you make another selection.

Bringing in guard Derrick Dockery is a good move, but you still have holes to fill on the line. Jon Jansen, Randy Thomas and Pete Kendall aren't going to cut it. The injuries (and age) led to last season's downfall in the second half of the season. If the Redskins don't do more to address the line, the signings of Hall and Haynesworth won't mean that much.

That doesn't make him a greedy, fearful thug like Taylor's killers, though.

At this point, I think the skins will pick at #13 whomever they have rated the highest among, Everette Brown, Tyson Jackson, and Arron Maybin

Anyway, now that all the money is gone on one player, it is poetic justice to see him in jail for a few month. I'm guessing the sentence will start in the 2nd week of september.

What's weird is that after watching the Senior Bowl practices, I blogged that Rey Mauaulga would be an excellent pick at 13, and folks howled and barked about the needing lineman.

Now, they like Maualga and hate the one line candidate--Andre Smith--who'd fit in our trough like the baby hog he is.

First of all, let me say that it's sad and unfortunate that this event led to the crippling injury to Corey Edmondson.

For all those thinking it was rage and Hayneworth is heading to jail, I encourage you to visit helpcoreyedmondson.com.

Nowhere does Mr Edmonson suggest there was road rage, nor is there any real suggestion Haynesworth should be jailed. The emphasis of his website is his mounting medical costs, and the amount of money Hayneworth receieved from the Skins.

We all know how this story ends--a large cash settlement. It would have been nicer if Haynesworth simply offered to pay Edmonson's medical costs without the involvement of the court. But both of them will be financially secure at the end of the process and life goes on.

So now Haynesworth is guilty of attempted murder? Wow, dude you have once again gone way overboard. Have you been examined for mental retardation? Dude has some issues, he's angry and has trouble controlling it sometimes. I'm sure that there is someone that you know or even in your family that deals with similar issues but would you put forth the idea that they are basically trying to take someones life? You really need to start thinking before you post. Your take on the Sean Taylor incident...pretty much completely off.

I'm sorry but this being a misdemeanor does not make him less responsible for his actions.

Here is what my issues are with the whole Haynesworth acquisition.
1. Possible character issues.
2. Prevents us from adding quality depth. We could have upgraded at several positions on the O-Line and added some quality depth on the defensive line, which was our biggest needs.

I'm sorry but it is getting harder to stomach Danny's stupidity each year. I am a redskin fan through and through and it makes me sick to see this guy constantly screw up the chemistry of the team. I am not saying that Haynesworth is definitely a bad move. I just think that there were better moves that could have been made instead of using the money on one player and now with these off the field issues coming up it just doesn't sit well with me.

CPortisRun,

My old, ignorant friend. All the commish has to do is look at HaynesNOTworth and suspend his overweight, angry butt for personal misconduct. Granted, he did stomp on a Cowgirl's face, but seriously, you thing permanently disabling a person isn't a big deal?

Granted, the charges were misdemeanors, but don't be so quick to discount this guy's history.

I said Haynesworth was a character risk -- but this isn't something new. Its misdemeanors, though clearly on the more serious side of misdemeanors.

My guess is Albert gets off with a probation or some community service in the offseason. No way does this impact his time with the Skins ... unless he does something this stupid again.

Just don't Haynesworth drive again. His main issues seem to be all traffic related. Snyder should get him a driver...problem solved...for now.

Posted by: SmallPen15 | March 13, 2009 2:43 AM | Report abuse

If you read the police accident report on Hog Heaven (someone posted the link on this blog) it says that AH veered into the lane of the victim, hit the car, the driver of the car lost control and the car ended up striking the median. In the report AH says that his car began "fish tailing" and that this was what caused him to veer into the other lane. A bit strange. On a dry road, traveling straight ahead, a ferrari is not the kind of car you would expect to fish tail. It is built to handle like a stradivarius at high speeds (double Italian plug - them Italians are good craftsmen). The other strange aspect of this incident is the severity of the injury. True, the car did strike the median, probably with considerable force, but if the driver were wearing a seatbelt it does not seem too likely that his hip would have been dislocated.

unless Albert was on double secret probation, this doesn't interfere with his playing for the Skins.

Of course, if he was driving recklessly just days after being put on probation ... it does raise a flag and makes it harder to support him.

As for settlements, those always take a while. Fault needs to be established ... was Albert speeding, was it the other driver seatbelted, was the median strip misplaced ... ugly legal stuff. Insurance lawyers are going to be involved. Yucky stuff. Settlements almost always happen after the criminal stuff is done. 5th amendment rights, that sort of thing

I read an article on another sports blog about how under extreme legal pressure the University of Illinois was forced to retire Chief Illiniwek, who had had a long and storied traditon as the school mascot. The article mentioned in passing that a similar incident had occurred with the Skins but the Univesity, being a state institution, did not have the financial wherewithall to assemble a legal team comparable to the Daniel Snyder's.

And for you pragmaist-apologists out there. Your MAIN worry is he might wrap his $100 million dollar Anger managed body around a telephone pole and put himself in the hospital.

Let's hope he doesn' take one of his many Redskin apologists with him during the accident.

Personally I doubt he'll do time, unless the judge has Titan season tickets. BUT, if he's found guilty, the victim will get a nice hunk of danny;s dollars in civil Court.

JR left out important details of the story in his haste to take shots at the Skins.

I read every story on this and JR's story was copied from other stories, the only problem is he left out some major details.

AH's car did not hit the other car, AH was passing the guy and then the guy lost control and hit the median.

It had snowed the night before and the roads were still covered, plus it was below freezing so there was ice on the roads.

AH stopped and called the Police, he stayed until the Police told him to leave. He was not cited at the scene.

I'm not a lawyer, but the kind of lawyer AH can hire with his money will eat the holes in that stroy for breakfeast.

There will be no suspension by the league, AH might have to give the dude some money in a civil case, but there will be no jail time.

Flounder, you and I have agreed on a lot lately, but I can't back this. If by "high and mighty" you mean "I would never drive so fast and reckless that I would run another car into a concrete median", then call me high and mighty. I love to drive well above the speed limit as much as the next guy, but the only time I topped 100 mph was on the way back from Canton last August because the chick we brought with us was such a pain in the ass I didn't care if I died. Even then, we were the only car on the road...

But I digress...this is more serious than some would lead you to believe. This excerpt from above is key:

"Reckless driving carries a maximum punishment of six months in jail and a $500 fine, and Haynesworth could receive another 30 days in jail and $50 fine for the other charge, according to the district attorney's office."

He may not see that jail time, but it's possible. While fine is mere pennies to him now, it's not a good thing to miss OTAs because you're in the clink. Ask Jamal Lewis...

Albert Haynesworth Almost Killed A Guy?
By Dashiell Bennett, 6:10 PM on Thu Mar 12 2009, 7,477 views

New Redskins tackle Albert Haynesworth has been in the news a lot lately, but the stories all seem to focus on his $100 million contract and not the car accident that left someone in a wheelchair.

On December 13, Haynesworth was driving down I-65 in Nashville in his 2008 Ferrari 599GTB. A witness said that she was going close to 80 mph in her car when Haynesworth passed her and then attempted to pass 25-year-old Corey Edmondson. Their cars allegedly touched, and then Edmondson lost control of his vehicle and crashed into the median. Did we mention that it had snowed the night before and there was still ice on the roads?

Haynesworth was cited for misdemeanor reckless driving and having an expired registration, however, the incident happened just four days after he had been fined $1,000 and put on probation for going 103 mph in a separate traffic incident from last March. He was indicted today on the December charges, but may face further legal trouble because he did not tell his probation officer about the accident.

What about Edmonson? He's been confined to a wheelchair or a walker since the accident and had to have hip replacement surgery. Friends and family have set up a fund to help pay his $230,000 in medical bills since he's been unable to work. In the meantime, Haynesworth became the highest paid defensive player in the NFL.

With all that prior history and high-profile "problems" (stomping on a head actually is a problem, but that word's thrown around so much now) wouldn't Danny (who is a lawyer) recognize the risky position he was placing his team in?

brown,

Cork is a major D-Bag who takes every shot at the FO's he can. So telling him to stop acting high and mighty was just another way for me to tell him to stop being a D-Bag.

The 100mph was not related to this he got a ticket for doing over 100 before this incident.

There was no speed report for the accident, and with snow and ice on the road I doubt he was doing 100.

Was he speeding probably did he run the guy off the road who knows, maybe the guy is a bad driver got scared when AH went by and lost control on the snow or ice.

No one really knows and there is no proof as to what happened, which is why AH will not see a second of jail time.

Ummm, the witness was driving at 80 mph with ice on the road. Something doesn’t jive. I'm guessing that either she's lying about how fast she was going, or the driving conditions weren't as poor as implied in the article. Haynesworth shouldn't have been speeding, or driving aggressively, but if you around the DC beltway I'd say at least a quarter of the drivers are doing the same thing

The problem is the balance sheet with the enormous amount of debt Six Flags is carrying. They have a type of stockholder note due on 08/15/09 for $275 Mil. And that is the current problem. If they can get that restructed, they might be ok....

Might, not probable, not likely, but might.

I'm done with yakking about Haynesworth as we all know he'll plead 'no contest' get a warning, pay a fine, get probation plus community service, and be on the field in late July ready to crush and bust.

The Boldin situation has drawn Moe's cobra-like attention as the thought of him in burgandy 'n gold opposite Moss/Cooley is enticing.

The question is: what would the cards want?

picks or players?

They have one decent tight end, but they feel their defense lost them the super bowl, that's why they fired Pendergast.

Maybe a cornerback and a high pick will satisfy the redbird's demands during the ten minute break before the thirteenth pick.

I hope so.

Simply put, we don't have the depth or the picks to get Boldin. I want him dressed in Burgundy & Gold on Sundays, but it's gotta be highly unlikely.

In other news, scout.com reports that the Skins have shown interest in LB Rey Maualuga.
"According to Maualuga, the Washington Redskins have shown the most interest in him thus far."

"..his first full workout is scheduled with the Redskins. With the Annual Owner’s Meeting taking place in a couple of weeks, the Redskins brass will be in California and will conduct a private workout with Maualuga on March 24th."

I would LOVE to get Boldin but I doubt we have enough ammo to pry him away from there. And if they offer what they offered the Bengals for Ocho Stinko, it ain't worth all that. But again: this team has made its bed with the two WRs drafted last year and will have to sink or swim with those guys the next couple years at least.

Posted by: brownwood26 | March 13, 2009 9:55 AM | Report abuse

moe, while a nice thought, its not going to happen. making any type of trade as you suggest would be essentially giving up on last years 3 draft picks, which after 1 season is way too early. Not to mention that you'd be bidding most likely against the Giants, and Philly who can offer more in the way of picks.

Good news Bean.

It seems were looking in the D direction - first Orakpo, now Mags.... its good that they know we need a pash rush, but we also need a RT more than we need ANYTHING else.

I still like the idea (not that it would happen) for trading all 4 picks to Detroit for #20 and #33. Then we could get a top line RT and DE/LB.

We would only drop 7 spots for our first pick (Still have a chance at Smith/Oher/Mags/Maybin) and at 33 we could have Britton, Beatty, etc.

I don't see us needing the 5th and 6th rounders more than we need a couple high picks. We already have plenty of DEPTH... we need SOLID STARTERS. No sense in wasting a pick in 5th and 6th round on another punter, or another backup lineman, or 5th corner.

Posted by: Rypien11 | March 13, 2009 10:13 AM | Report abuse

The main reason they are persuing criminal charges at all is to facilitate and better support future civil proceedings now that Mr. Haynesworth is a 100+ million dollar man.

Not realizing that in "real dollars" his contract is not worth NEARLY that much, I believe that there will be some future dissapointment during those civil proceedings when the percieved tens of millions they can file for drops to millions or A million.

Though any of those amounts are nothing to take lightly.

Oh Flounder, just ONCE I'd like to post and not get a predictable knee jerk response from my whale-poo dwelling buddy.

Yes, people get in accidents. When it's their fault (allegedly) they get cited. If it was your loved one lying in the hospital, you'd be howling like a stuck pig. This is what situational morality is all about. You don't display any scruples other than if it benefits the 'skins, it's good. If it helps Snyder make more money, it's good. If it sells more jerseys, it's good.

i SAID he wouldn't do time--he gets a celebrity pass--but he'll get his butt handed to him in civil court.

No I don't LOVE taking shots at the team. Unlike you I worry about Mr Snyder's expensive investments. In case you didn't notice one of them just turned belly up.

Reckless driving carries a maximum punishment of six months in jail and a $500 fine, and Haynesworth could receive another 30 days in jail and $50 fine for the other charge, according to the district attorney's office.

Can't a guy dream?

In baseball, one team makes a move to keep a guy away from a competitor or to force a division rival into giving up youth and value for someone who really might not be worth it.

The Redskins should persue Boldin just to effect the market in a way where division teams like the jints and iggles pay dearly if they do decide they want him.

Plus: Fitzgerald, and not Boldin, is the one who's worth the price of the tickets.

Skins' fans have to hope Boldin dangles long enough to where the cards might say, "Hey, let's get something out of him so we can get rid of him and the headaches that go with having him."

'Cuz in that ten minute window before the 13th pick, who knows what they'll take: again, all they can say is, "No, we won't move him."

But if they say yes,........

There is an upside to having a DT who fights with ppl and stomps on cowboys players. Hes a pissed off, ill tempered 300 lb gorilla that will help the defense pressure the QB, something they havent done in some time consistantly.

A OLB or an OT with the 13th cant go wrong. A LB might make more sense with not having any real starter or much depth there. Heyer and Jansen at least have experience and depth. IF they add another FA OT they definitely go LB at 13.

BILLS FROM SAVAGE ERA ARE COMING DUE, TODAY
Posted by Mike Florio on March 13, 2009, 10:11 a.m. EDT
The word on the street as the Cleveland Browns were looking to rebuild their football operation was that former G.M. Phil Savage had negotiated a series of bad deals that would put the team in a very difficult situation during the 2009 season.

Difficult situation, on.

According to Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Browns were scheduled to owe more than $30 million in roster bonuses as of the close of business today.

The new “ManKok” regime already has been forced to part ways with tackle Kevin Shaffer and receiver Joe Jurevicius due in part to these bonuses. Per Grossi, Shaffer was owed $1 million. (According to a league source, the total roster bonus owed to Shaffer was actually $1.5 million; we suppose it’s possible — but not likely – that the extra $500,000 was due at a later date.)

Grossi reports that Jurevicius was owed $250,000.

Other remaining players are scheduled to receive big-money checks if they’re still on the team at 4:00 p.m. EST.

Defensive tackle Shaun Rogers and defensive lineman Corey Williams will pocket $6 million in roster bonuses.

Quarterback Derek Anderson has a roster bonus of $5 million, which is fully guaranteed. (So, in other words, cutting him won’t allow the Browns to save the money.)

Receiver Donte Stallworth has a roster bonus of $4.75 million.

Running back Jamal Lewis is due to receive a $4 million roster bonus.

Left tackle Joe Thomas will get a $3.44 million bonus.

Absent some restructuring, we think that Stallworth and Lewis could be in danger of being cut.

There’s also a chance that the Browns have retained the ability to convert these roster bonuses to guaranteed payments, which could significantly reduce the 2009 cap charges.

Then again, that would reflect that the the team had done something smart. Giving Stallworth a contract that pays him $4 million in March of its second year tells us that “smart” isn’t an adjective that was applicable to the Savage regime.

BILLS, PETERS STILL WAY APART ON A NEW DEAL
Posted by Mike Florio on March 13, 2009, 12:02 p.m.
Bills tackle Jason Peters wanted a new contract last year.

He still wants one.

After ending a lengthy holdout in 2008, the team and the starting left tackle have yet to get together on a new deal. According to the Buffalo News, the two sides are more than $3 million per year apart.

Peters still has two years left on his current deal; he’s due to receive a salary of $3.8 million in 2009 and $3.4 million in 2010.

Panthers tackle Jordan Gross recently signed a six-year contract averaging $10 million per season. Peters presumably wants something in that same ballpark.

As Mark Gaughan of the News points out, the Bills could opt to trade Peters, who at 27 still has several years of significant production remaining.

Would he be worth a trade? Maybe. But remember, he and Dockery have already been paired up in Buffalo, and the returns weren't so great.

I'd say keep him in mind after the draft. See what options we have in the draft; if we're able to land an elite tackle, then forget Peters. If not, then it might be worth it to gauge interest.

One thing is, what if a judge wants to be a harda$$ and sentences Prince Albert to time that takes hin off the football field for an inconvient stretch.

What's his court date?

Will they pull Johnny Cochran out of the ground and have him defend our fair-headed, tubby prince?

Wow, nevermind, I just found a website that has Peters listed as giving up 11.5 sacks (dead last for a left tackle) this past season. I was always under the impression he was a pure pass-protector.

By the way, Chris Samuels was tied for 6th best tackle in the league with allowing only 3 sacks, despite playing half the time on one leg. And we all know he's a beast on the run. Samuels still has it, for anyone that doubts him.

Other names talked about (and rank league-wide for their position):
-Khalif Barnes (23rd): 7.5 sacks
-Orlando Pace (3rd): 2 sacks
-Pete Kendall (17th): 3 sacks
-Chris Kemoeatu (31st): 7.5 sacks
-Derrick Dockery (dead last, 32nd): 8.5 sacks
-Jason Brown (19th): 2.25 sacks
-Casey Rabach (31st): 5.5 sacks
-Randy Thomas (19th): 4 sacks
-Jon Jansen (22nd): 6.5 sacks
-Stacy Andrews (30th): 9.5 sacks
-Ray Willis (1st): 1.5 sacks (in 10 games)

Its hard to have a left tackle playing on one leg against the blitz, the pass rush. Move him to the right tackle position where his run blocking skills can be used to effect.

WARNER SAYS HE DIDN’T LEVERAGE THE CARDINALS
Posted by Mike Florio on March 13, 2009, 1:22 p.m. EDT
We know that we’ve posted more than a few items of late regarding Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner. We know that it has caused some of you to think that we have a personal issue with him.

We don’t. He’s done great things. He has authored an unprecedented rags-to-riches-to-rags-to-riches story, with a few chapters remaining.

But we have wondered for years how much of the image, if any, is merely a facade, and he’s one of the only NFL players about whom we’ve had these doubts on such a nagging basis. So, since it’s typically our approach to ignore the flashpots and the disembodied head and look for the man behind the curtain, we think it’s healthy and appropriate to scrutinize apparent or actual inconsistencies.

The latest from Warner came during an appearance on Friday’s Jim Rome Show.

During the discussion, Warner attempted to explain his flirtation with the 49ers as something other than an effort to leverage the Cardinals (remember, he’s on a higher moral plan than that) by claiming that, after meeting with San Fran, he didn’t ask for more money from the Cardinals.

Um. Really?

The timeline is simple. At some point before Monday, March 2, the Cardinals had offered two years, $20 million to Warner. On Monday, March 2, Warner visited San Francisco. On Tuesday, March 3, after Warner returned home from California, Warner’s agent sent a new proposal to the Cardinals on a two-year, $23 million deal.

And that’s all we need to say.

But let’s add one more thing. It’s a bit of free advice for Kurt, coming from the fact that I’ve been doing radio interviews for nearly eight years. When doing so, I find a quiet room in the house, away from the wife and the kid and the television and the wife’s cell phone and whatever in the heck else might be going on that might create a distraction or a disruption for the host or the audience.

Kurt doesn’t.

In fact, we’ve never heard a radio interview of Warner in which there wasn’t all sorts of noise in the background. And with an army of kids rivaling the Travis Henry-sired roster in the forthcoming United Football League, it can get a little loud.

To their credit, guys like Jim Rome and Dan Patrick roll with it, joke about it. Some of Jim’s listeners are applauding Warner for the multi-tasking.

Maybe it’s just me (and there’s a good chance that it is), but I think it shows a certain amount of disrespect to the host, and to the audience.

Unless, of course, Warner’s subtle goal is to reinforce the notion that he’s the ultimate family man — and thus the ultimate great guy.

Regardless of what might actually be going on behind the curtain.

Johnson is scheduled to visit the Buccaneers on April 2, the Redskins on April 4, the Browns on April 8 and the Falcons on Monday.

At 6-foot-6, 266 pounds, Johnson is a tall, lanky pass rusher who registered nine sacks and 17 1/2 tackles for losses last season and was named All-Atlantic Coast Conference. He was a finalist for the Bednarik and Hendricks awards.

According to a league source, the Green Bay Packers are high on Johnson.

I would love to get some insight into players the Skins could pick up in the later rounds that are of need to them (LB, OT, DE)

some are mentioned here :

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2009/football/nfl/03/13/prodays/index.html?eref=T1

"Paul Kruger/DE-OLB/Utah: Kruger's combine was disappointing and his pro day was not much better. He barely broke 4.8 seconds in the 40 and completed 22 reps on the bench. Scouts will now debate what position to line up the 260-pound defender, who is in danger of falling out of round two."


"Robert Francois/LB/Boston College: Francois is one of the least known prospects from the Boston College defense, yet one of the draft's real sleepers. He measured 6-2, 245 then timed both of his 40's in the mid 4.5-second range. Francois posted a 35.5-inch vertical jump, 10' broad and had a short shuttle time under four seconds. He looked terrific in drills, working with the defensive backs, and looked better than most of the secondary prospects."


"Demonte' Bolden/DT/Tennessee: Bolden was sick prior to the combine and showed up at Indy weakened and underweight. He was back to full strength for pro day Wednesday. After measuring 6-foot-3.5 and 294 pounds, Bolden ran his 40 in 4.95 seconds. His other marks included 33-inch vertical jump, 9-5 broad jump and 26 reps on the bench."

I want to throw this scenario out there that keeps coming to my mind to see what everyone else thinks.

Draft Moreno and trade Portis
Here are my reasons why this makes sense:
1. Moreno is a younger version of Portis and rookie running backs do not take much time to develop. (ex. Adrian Peterson and Steve Slaton to name a few in recent years)
2. Portis has reached his peak and there is nowhere to go but down.
3. Betts would be a nice starter with Moreno a good change of pace and then Morneno could take over relatively quick.
4. Portis would bring some extra picks that we really need.

That brings me to my next question. What could we get for Portis?

From what I've been reading Beatty is at worst a high second rounder. Loaholt has worked himself into the second round as well because he's lost weight and improved his footwork, he's now 325 lbs, yet he's kept his strength.

Johnson scares the hell out of me at #13. He has to work on his play against the run. However, there's no doubt he's an elite pass rusher.

As for Boldin, no one up here wanted him more last year than me. But ... Boldin got more expensive (All Pro, Pro Bowl, Super Bowl) and we have other major needs.

Last year at this time, it wasn't clear the Cards were going to be a team that led in the Super Bowl with less than 2 minutes to go. Now that they know they can go that far with their current group, I'm sure they want to take their same team and take another run at it. For the Cards, their mgmt has to think their time is now, with Warner. Last year they may have wanted picks. This year, they won't want picks as much as a high quality player in return.

We have less cap maneuvering room and, sad to say, bigger needs.

I'm a big Sooner fan and watched Loadholt play about every game. He is a massive run blocker, but tends to get beat by speed rushers. With him moving to right guard that should help. I definetely think he could be there in the 3rd round because of that reason. He can't be any worse than Jansen and with some extra polishing on technique he could develop into a strong right tackle.

[RAVENS TO RELEASE ROLLE
Posted by Mike Florio on March 13, 2009, 2:48 p.m.

The Baltimore Ravens soon will be parting ways with veteran cornerback Samari Rolle, according to jocklife.com.

Rolle reportedly asked to be cut after the team signed cornerback Dominique Foxworth in free agency, giving him a four-year, $27.2 million contract with $16.5 million guaranteed.

He is under contract through 2010, at salaries of $4.1 million this year and $4.5 million in the final year of the deal.

The Ravens also cut cornerback Chris McAlister prior to the start of free agency. McAlister remains unsigned.]

Rolle would be a good pickup for a one year deal. He'd compete for the third corner spot (if healthy and hungry) I can see the skins making a play for a corner (McAllister, Rolle..) if, (1)Boldin is traded to the East & (2) he comes at a cheap price.

I think Synder & Vinny feel like the team is through with much of it's FA upgrades. I think that they feel confident enough in the OLINE, that picking up another FA is not necessary. They will use the draft to add depth, possibly a stater in round on.
