With Albert Haynesworth, trouble might be brewing for Redskins

Obviously, we spent a lot of time Monday on the Redskins' quarterback situation, and we're probably only getting started. But I wanted to take a moment to revisit a potential storm on the horizon: Albert Haynesworth.

In a post Monday morning, Rick Maese explained the Redskins included Haynesworth in their trade proposal to Philadelphia for Donovan McNabb, which the Eagles rejected. The fact that Coach Mike Shanahan was willing to trade Haynesworth within the division indicates how eager he is to move him.

Haynesworth has not participated in the offseason conditioning program as Shanahan preferred, has expressed concerns about moving to nose tackle and last Thursday received a $21 million bonus. Shanahan's contempt for Haynesworth, Insider readers have written in e-mails I've received, was apparent on his face in a video interview during the owners' meetings in Orlando recently. And shortly after he was hired, General Manager Bruce Allen told people in the organization there was no way he would have given Haynesworth a $100 million contract, a former team official said.

Until this week, I figured Shanahan and defensive coordinator Jim Haslett would find a way to make it work with Haynesworth because of the organization's major financial commitment to him and his potential to be the league's most dominant interior lineman. But now I'm not so sure.

Reblog this post [with Zemanta]

Washington already has paid Haynesworth $32 million in the first 14 months of his contract. Haynesworth, who played in 12 games last season, is guaranteed another $9 million combined the next two seasons.

When word reaches Haynesworth about Shanahan's attempt to trade him (trust us, it will), Haynesworth probably won't feel like cooperating more than he has to this point. The bigger problem for the Redskins is if Haynesworth becomes frustrated with his role, Shanahan's demands or the color of the sky.

When Haynesworth is in top form, no defensive player is more disruptive. But as we learned last season, there could be big problems if Haynesworth is disgruntled.

Regarding the Brandon Marshall thing, I think it would be a much better idea to sign Terrell Owens. He's tall enough. And wouldn't it be wonderful to reunite him with his long lost soul-mate, Donovan McNabb. For that I would maybe keep my NFL Sunday Ticket.

*repost*

The Vikings have a great roster up and down but guess what Tavaris Jackson can't lead them anywhere.

Posted by: Flounder21 | April 6, 2010 8:38 AM | Report abuse

Flounder, we don't have nearly the talent level across the board as the Vikings do, wouldn't you at least agree there? So, with that in mind, that's where I'm wondering how a QB whose best days are probably behind him will help us get to an elite level?

Now, I know, I know, wait and see, right? And I will, but like BG said our options are limited. We have as of now one pick in the first 3 rounds, maybe we trade back and turn that into two picks. Maybe. Then next year as of now we have a first and a second, the 3rd might be gone. But anyway my point is, by the time we rebuild the roster, how old will McNabb be? 36? Will he still be an elite QB then?

Shouldn't a $21 million check be enough to get him to shut up and play hard. I mean what the hell is needed...

going on record once again stating my displeasure with this trade for McNabb...

Posted by: BeantownGreg1 | April 6, 2010 8:12 AM


I'm still on the fence, Greg...I use the analogy of buying a car. If you get a nice deal on a pre-owned Mercedes (let's say, a $50k car marked down to $30k), it's all well and good...but if you've been doing some questionable spending and can't afford a $30k car at that time, then you shouldn't buy it. Especially if it's at the expense of paying the mortgage on your house.

Same with the Redskins. They spent picks questionably and it hurts when you have a great deal in front of you that you can't afford. But instead of playing it safe, they went out and spent picks anyway to get a guy at a position they didn't necessarily have to upgrade right away if you're truly rebuilding.

So I'm not so upset over getting McNabb as I am spending what we spent to get him. And if this move was made at the expense of building the line, then that's a MAJOR problem...

If Haynesworth was already unhappy with how he was going to be used and with the 'Skins' desire to have him work out with the team, he should welcome a trade. This is a non-story.

Matt,

To anwser your question I don't know how good are team is because we have'nt had a real coach the last two years. Are they as good as the Vikings no, but Shanny must have seen in film that the team is not as bad as Zorn coached them to be.

We are stuck with this fat malcontent. Blame Vinny and Danny for guaranteeing him so much money making him untradeable.

As a true Redskins fan (living in VA for 27 years} and now living in Minnesota now, I watched the whole Farve thing develop here and watching Vikings fans go from tolerating the former rival HOF QB come to town and by week 4 go absolutely crazy for this guy was insane. The culture change was a true bar for free agency. (remember how far we have come from the Wilber Marshall trade and what a big deal that was?) People at work could not wait to ask me how I felt about the trade. And I really did not Know how to answer. I grew up in Syracuse, NY. Which Made the whole thing even more weird for me as I cheered for him in collage, rooted against him twice a year, and now he's the starting QB for the Washington Redskins! If I see the same thing happen in Washington (on my Sunday ticket, Direct TV)as happened in Minneapolis, I'm all for it big time!( still think we need to get some OTs to make it real.

"...your enthusiasm for the oline, and thats gonna make/break the season/Mcnabb....I mean, they've placed/hedged their bets that Okung is gonna be there at #4..."

All we can assume at this point in the game is that what picks we have left will be devoted to offensive linemen.

And I know this is blasphemous, but how do we know C Foerster's coaching, a scheme change, and quicker quarterback decision-making won't solve some of the sack issues Campbell endured?

And I'll be really surprised if we get anything good back for JC17. The brass leaking it that we might keep him means nobody one wants him, or no one has put in a good offer for him...

Posted by: mattylight | April 6, 2010 8:24 AM
==================
The "brass leaking" is to retain JC's value and/or so somebody makes a deal, NOW, versus no Contract extension and he is released outright. Do you really want a 3+ million dollar back-up? Skins were actually competing against themselves when negotiating DM's trade value.. DM for a 2nd pushed JC down the scale to a 4th or 5th rnd pick.

Its got to be pis-sing off The Dan. Not even an offer of a 4th, so far, for a HUGE multi-pick and 5 year investment.
And the irony? The HC/GM in charge, now, is the same one who fleeced Dan and Joe back in 05 for the 3 picks, which became Cutler, B.Marshall, and Paymah.
Dan is probably thinking "you cant even make this shi-t up"

I thought it was made so that Shanahan wouldn't waste picks either (1) trading up to get Bradford, (2) taking Clausen @4 -- freeing the pick for an elite LT, (3) taking McCoy/Tebow in the second. So, you have a proven and reliable veteran leader at QB PLUS you've saved picks to rebuild the O line.

It is clear that he has no use for JC, so he had to get a QB. If you think he's wrong about JC, then you have license to oppose the trade. If you agree that JC shouldn't start this year, then you've got to like the trade.

I told you folks on here when Butterworth signed. No, I do not post 100 messages a day, but signing a fat, unmotivated, DT close to 30 was a BAD move. Now we get a 33 year old quarterback whose quarterback rating wasn't far from Campbell's and a top backup in Grossman who blows. No OL either.

Realism has never been the theory in Ashburn. I hope that Shanny isn't blinded by the shade of green. How's the draft coming? Oops....nevermind, no 2nd or 3rd round picks? Classic 'skins.

Albert needs to learn to be a professional. He needs to get in shape and shut his mouth. Haynesworth and Meangelo hall need to shut up and play. Albert has been given every opportunity from this ownership group and he has embarrassed the team, the league and himself. He cannot continue to play like this-out of shape. He cannot even get into shape to play every defensive play. The Redskins have all but announced that they would throw Albert in the trade with Donovan but no one wants him. Wake up Albert.

I agree with your statement, brownie. The key words are "if you're truly rebuilding." I think this is exciting, because apparently FO is not rebuilding, they are going out to win now. Not sure it will work, but somehow they will get the OT's that we need to win. I'm watching, and wondering. But after trading for DMN, I'm convinced that is the plan.

Is this news? We have a bunch of rumors circulating about a possible trade of a player whom, rumor again has it, is unhappy. Quoting other sports writers who quote unnamed/unverified sources is just spreading gossip. Why doesn't someone get on the phone with AH's agent and see what his slant is about all of this? If the big guy is unhappy, then his agent should be looking into a trade and, I would imagine, he wouldn't be shy about getting the word out there...

Tap the brakes on Redskins playoff talk
April, 5, 2010
By Matt Mosley
Pardon me for not getting caught up in the apparent playoff euphoria that is sweeping Redskins Park. My esteemed colleague and pal John Clayton has elevated the Washington Redskins to "co-favorite" status, along with the Dallas Cowboys, to win the NFC East.

Sorry, but I'm not there yet. Clayton points out that the addition of Brett Favre to the Vikings added 5.7 points per game and took them from 10 to 12 wins (and an NFC title game appearance).

My issue with that comparison is that McNabb won't have anywhere near the talent surrounding him Favre enjoyed. The Vikings had the best running back in the league heading into the 2009 season. The Redskins counter with a stable of running backs who each peaked about four years ago. I realize Clinton Portis was good in 2008 but he faded late.

Let's not act like drafting Oklahoma State left tackle Russell Okung in this month's draft is going to completely fix one of the worst offensive lines in the league. What, did you guys get excited about that Artis Hicks signing? He couldn't start for the Vikings last season but I guess he'll get the Redskins to the next level.

By trading for McNabb, Shanahan is acting as if the Redskins are prepared to win now. You don't pay an aging quarterback $11.2 million in 2010 to be a stopgap player. To me, this smacks of the old Dan Snyder way of doing business. McNabb is a blockbuster name like, say, Deion Sanders or Bruce Smith. It sounds like another expensive shortcut, albeit a highly-intriguing one.

But let's not forget McNabb finished his 2009 campaign by playing miserably in back-to-back losses to the Cowboys. Are the Redskins a better team with McNabb at quarterback? Of course they are. But it's hard to imagine him making a seven-win difference -- and that's what it would probably take to challenge for a division title. Clayton immediately has the Redskins passing the Eagles with this move.

"As for the Eagles, who were 11-5 last season, the pressure falls on the unproven quarterback Kevin Kolb," writes Clayton. "With this being his first year as the full-time starter, we can expect a two- or three-win drop in the Eagles' record because first-year starters have difficulty winning close games. The Packers experienced that after they traded Favre to the New York Jets for a second-round choice in 2008. Even though Aaron Rodgers threw for more than 4,000 yards in 2008, he struggled in the fourth quarter of close games, and the Packers dropped from 13-3 to 6-10."

I think Haynesworth will stay a redskin for another season or two. I would like to see them, about 30 minutes before kickoff vs the eagles, tell him that “yeah we offered you in the trade for Mcnabb……they laughed at us”……..

con't...

Redskins Passing Per Game
The Redskins haven't ranked in the top 10 in passing yards per game since 2000 (9th), when Brad Johnson led the team in pass yards with 2,505. Since then, Washington has ranked as low as 30th in 2001 and as high as 14th in 2007.
Year YPG NFL Rank
2009 218.1 16th
2008 189.1 23rd
2007 216.4 14th
2006 189.2 21st
2005 194.1 21st
Again, the good news for Eagles fans is that McNabb isn't exactly inheriting the Fun Bunch. Santana Moss still has breakaway speed, but he needs time to get open. And let's not act like McNabb is the same guy who once kept a play alive for 14 seconds on "Monday Night Football" against the Cowboys. In Philadelphia, McNabb played the majority of his career with offensive tackles Tra Thomas and Jon Runyan. He'll likely be breaking in a rookie on his blindside in 2010 and the pedestrian Stephon Heyer will man the right side.

This is certainly a fascinating trade in terms of its impact on two franchises, but to say that Washington and Dallas are the co-favorites in the division is a pretty big stretch

And you heard it here last also. This is utter stupidity. AH is the most dominating DT in the league. You don't trade him for a 2nd or 3rd rd unknown. Even straight up for the #2 pick to take Suh or McCoy would be questionable. AH has already proven that he can play. A draft pick has shown that he can play in college, but not at the pro level. So get real.

=====================
I think the #4 becomes a 3 pick move for the Skins..
Skins swap the #4 for a mid to late 1st and acquire a 3rd and 4th. Similar to what Shanny did with the Skins in 05.
Or, give up the 1st completely..and acquire a 2nd rnd and 3rd rnd in 2010 and a 4th rnder in 2011.
All of the above changes of course if they can trade JC or Haynesworth or both before draft day.

Smartest thing for the Skins to do with JC is to hold on to him until the NFL October trade deadline, albeit paying 3 mil for a backup.
Surely one of the 31 other teams starting QB will go down to injury in preseason or the first 5 games of 2010. And JC's value will rise dramatically when that now motivated team comes calling with 2011 picks or players.

The upgrade filters out any comments regarding a certain North Carolina college basketball team who we are all tired of hearing about.

Where's Campbell headed?
8:12AM Interested: Jaguars?, Raiders?, Vikings?, Bills?, Browns?, Panthers?

With the Redskins' trade for Donovan McNabb, it is clear that Jason Campbell is not long for Washington, D.C. A trade seems to be a strong possibility, with two possible destinations being the two teams that just lost out on the McNabb sweepstakes: Oakland and Buffalo.

Possible destinations for Campbell
Oakland: Lost out on McNabb, other options aren't too encouraging Buffalo: Campbell's not from California!Minnesota: You know, in case Favre doesn't come back Carolina: Could use somebody to push Matt Moore Jacksonville: David Garrard's not getting any younger Both teams (which pick consecutively in the first round) need a QB upgrade, but could also take a tackle with their first pick. And of course, there is the chance of a team biding its time and getting into the mix later (say, a Favre-less Minnesota Vikings, if they see Campbell as an upgrade over the Tarvaris Jackson-Sage Rosenfels duo).

Carolina is another team to keep an eye on, as the Panthers have yet to settle their QB situation, and a hard-working, less flashy guy like Campbell might be more of what they're looking for in the position (seeing as they have taken a pass on adding Michael Vick, despite his interest in playing for them). ESPN's NFC South blogger Pat Yasinskas thinks Campbell is worth a shot for the Panthers, possibly with a mid-round pick.

Jason Reid of the Washington Post relays word from ESPN 980 radio in D.C., which reported several teams that are said to be interested in Campbell. The list includes Buffalo, Carolina, Oakland, Jacksonville and "an unidentified team." ESPN.com's Matt Mosley doesn't see much trade value for Campbell, and teams could just wait until they release him. ESPN Insider Adam Schefter reported on Monday that Campbell was scheduled to meet with coach Mike Shanahan that afternoon.

AH's suffering from Ryan Leaf syndrome: He got his money and he couldn't care less about performing on the field. If he doesn't like that he was shopped around in a trade, tough luck. It's a business, a business that enriched him. If he doesn't give full effort or participate in team activities, sit his fat rear end on the bench. This could be as bad as the Arenas situation, an overpaid player who can't be dealt because of a ridiculous contract.

Fredie, I don't know about you but I couldn't care less about winning now if it's at the expense of winning BIG later. I mean, this is a 8 or 9 win team at best, even if they land Okung at LT. I'd rather lose 3 more games this year if it'll preserve picks and win us more games down the road. As it stands now, we've got a franchise QB with a history of injury and no O-line to keep him upright. This team ain't a contender this year and I'd rather them build up a PERENNIAL contender instead of pushing all the chips to the middle of the table to win-or-be-damned in one year.

Is 11.2 million the base salary for McNabb next year. I haven’t sent he terms of the contract or trade and what we are on the hook for. I saw the eagles would have avoided the roster bonus by trading him when they did. I assume along with the trade the FO assumes all of the contract dollars due to McNabb? Anyone else know…Just curious.

Man do you not know what your talking about. Comparing AH to ryan Leaf I'll just leave that alone because you wouldn't get it anyway.

AH can be traded easy the 21 mil was a bonus and it's already paid the other team would not have to pick that up.

AH has 9mil Guaranteed left on his contract thats all the other team would have to pay.

McNabb is definitely an upgrade to the Skins. Mike Wise is definitely against and wrote "Are the Skins poised to win the SB this year or next? No and No.

But the fairer question is "Are the Skins a better team with a much better chance at the playoffs with McNabb as the QB for the next 3-5 years? A big YES

If we had picked up Clausen or Bradford, what a zoo we would have had with Campbell starting and after every bad throw, fans and reporters would have been clamoring for the rookie. Now we have a QB that NOBODY will question on/off the team.

Smartest thing for the Skins to do with JC is to hold on to him until the NFL October trade deadline, albeit paying 3 mil for a backup.
Surely one of the 31 other teams starting QB will go down to injury in preseason or the first 5 games of 2010. And JC's value will rise dramatically when that now motivated team comes calling with 2011 picks or players.
Posted by: SkinsneedaGM | April 6, 2010 9:35 AM

I was thinking the same thing. Plus, I don’t know if we can count on Mcnabb playing the whole year, so the skins could actually end up needing Campbell. No telling if/when mcnabb might go down, especially with the OL the way it is.

IMO we have the following players that have trade value:

Campbell
Carter
Cooley
Fletcher
Landry
Rogers
Haynesworth

Campbell is all but gone, despite having no leverage now we will move him for my guess is a 4th. Carter isn't a great fit for a 3-4 but he's not 25 years old either so I'd be surprised if he has much value unless packaged with a player or pick. Cooley is the older more expensive of our two talented TEs, personally I hope we don't trade him as I think having he and Davis on the field at the same time presents huge match-up problems but I understand the argument for trading him. Fletcher isn't an ideal 3-4 MLB and can't play forever, but I think he can play well in any system and is an ideal leader, I love him and hope they keep him but again, I understand the argument. Landry has a ridiculous contract for a safety and the truth is he has massively underwhelmed, maybe someone seduced by his "potential" would trade for him if so do it! Rogers, old stone hands is a decent cover corner but a terrible fit in a system built on pressure and forcing turnovers seeing as how he can't catch. Lastly, Haynesworth is dominant when motivated but a 3-4 doesn't place a lot of emphasis on the line, he's not as valuable as in a 4-3 and may not be worth the money/aggravation any more.

IMO Campbell, Landry, Carter, and Haynesworth are the most likely to be dealt and I would expect we make a play for Marshall somehow as it seems Shanny's "wait and see" was almost an admission of interest. I don't see how we have enough to get it done now unless we move some guys for picks and then trade those but IMO the trading has just begun.

Compensatory picks: Nothing to do with RFA. Under terms of the NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks. Compensatory free agents are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors. The formula was developed by the NFL Management Council. Not every free agent lost or signed by a club is covered by this formula.

Looks like Florio is chasing the stick that JReid threw this morning:

Redskins could still make a run at Brandon Marshall
Posted by Mike Florio on April 6, 2010 9:44 AM ET
In the wake of the move to acquire quarterback Donovan McNabb from the Eagles, immediate speculation regarding McNabb's arsenal of weapons centered on receiver Terrell Owens. But Chris Russell of 106.7 The Fan in D.C. reports that at least one high-level Redskins source is opposed to the notion of adding Owens.

If not Owens, how about Brandon Marshall? Though the McNabb trade removes the high second-round pick that the Redskins could have used to get Marshall, other options remain for getting the deal done, including a first-round pick in 2011, an offseason that likely will feature a deep free-agent class.

Jason Reid of the Washington Post believes that a move for Marshall remains possible. Of course, this would mean that last year's report that Redskins coach Mike Shanahan was at the end of his rope with Marshall in 2008, and that Shanahan would have cut or traded Marshall if Shanahan hadn't been fired, was incorrect. Then again, we never really believed that one.

So would we be surprised if Marshall becomes the next No. 1 wideout for the Redskins? Not nearly as surprised as we were to learn that the Redskins had finagled McNabb.

zjfr2, Fletcher has no trade value, and it would be tough to replace Landry (at SS) with someone already on the roster, so we would still need to go get an SS an addition to a FS. I like Doughty, be the boy lacks speed.

Posted by: edvar | April 6, 2010 10:05 AM | Report abuse

As for McNabb...

I didn't like it when I first heard the trade. But after thinking about it I've changed my mind for the following reasons:

1. McNabb is better than Campbell right now, which means more points on the board

2. When we sign him to a 3 or 4-year extension, he will be the bridge to our future Quarterback

If we go O-line this year (even as part of a trade-down) we can still use our 1st-rounder or 3rd-rounder next year on a young QB who can develop properly behind McNabb for 1-2 years. The 2011 draft is going to be the deepest QB draft since 2004 (Rivers, Eli, Big Ben, Matt Schaub)

The last statement I heard Haynesworth utter was that he had no intention of being a distraction, and would do or play wherever the team wanted him.

To imply the team thinks so little of him that they would trade him within the division...well one could say the same thing about the Eagles feelings toward McNabb. The though that Haynesworth should continue to be riddiculed because he chose another course where his off-season conditioning is concerned is not in accordance to the rules governing the activities. That activity is strictly voluntary and a player should not be subjected to any form of punity for electing not to attend despite managements suggestions to the contrary.

If they don't trade him, he comes into training shape in excellent shape, does what the coaches ask him, then will be a good time to kake a decision about him...not until.

Lest we forget, Allen was fired for inheriting a Super Bowl team and transforming them into one of the worst in the league. Shanny was fired largely for insisting on a series of bad personnel decisions. These guys definitely have higher IQs than Vinnie, but that just means their potential ineptitude will be more subtle and complex; the end result could well be the same.

Fat Albert is this year's Snyderrato albatross around the team's neck. Will they cut their losses, offer him a buy-out & receive nothing in return? Can they put him through psychological games to the point that he feels his best option is to shut up and get with the program? Can they sweeten the pot enough that another team will take his fat contract, and equally fat glutes? If they're able to resolve this situation to the Redskin's advantage, this, more than anything will begin to establish my confidence in the new coach & GM.

Posted by: nonsensical2001 | April 6, 2010 11:10 AM | Report abuse

Haynesworth has virtually no trade value given his poor attitude, conditioning, and work ethic. I doubt that Shanny and Allen can get even a 2nd or 3rd round draft pick with the $9M of guaranteed money he is due. Like Portis, the Redskins would be better off without Haynesworth on the roster. He's a cancer in the locker room and a terrible example of the type of players who came here for the $$$$'s under the Cerratto regime.

Release him if you can't get a draft pick for him on draft day. No point in keeping a player here who doesn't want to be part of the team. Same goes for Landry if he doesn't want to get with the program under Shanahan.

Former WP writer Jason LaCanfora is probably giggling with devilish delight over the Albert Haynesworth will he play or will he go story.

Snyder snubbers like LaCanfora & Mike Wise are perpetuating the negative blanket surrounding poor Jason Campbell and the misfortune of guiding a team beset with turmoil from year to year.

Campbell is a humble, down-to-earth country boy. That's awesome but the guy isn't our Brett Favre.

There's not a doubt that McNabb's career trumps Campbell's performances.

Shanahan has decided to move on, and now there's a new signal caller in town.

If they had the No. 1 pick the Skins would draft Sam Bradford. (an avid Shanahan fan)

But they don't, they should draft Okung and pick up some picks by shopping either Haynesworth or dare I say Chris Cooley.

Snyder can feel his fan base slipping and feels he must continue trying to "buy" a little instant credibility in favor of building a long term contender.

For me getting McNabb is the last straw. On his best day he was good but never great and of couse we give up two draft picks for an over the hill, made of glass, inaccurate, not mobile anymore, Philadelpia smelling, QB!

Why did the Redskins give Haynesworth 21 million? If he is going to be a pain, they should have just cut him.
