(The Spread) - Speculation is starting to mount that Redskins’ defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth could wind up in an Eagles uniform next season, assuming of course that Washington wants nothing to do with the free agent bust.
While Washington GM Bruce Allen remains hopeful that Haynesworth can still be a productive member of the Redskins following a season of turmoil, it looks like the defensive tackle’s days are numbered in D.C. Clearly Haynesworth doesn’t want to play for head coach Mike Shanahan and why would Shanahan want Haynesworth on his roster after this past season?
The Eagles just hired Haynesworth’s former coach in Tennessee, Jim Washburn, thus the speculation that the DT could wind up in Philadelphia. Haynesworth even said on Thursday that he’s willing to take less money to play for Washburn again, although the Eagles and Redskins would still have to work out a trade.
If healthy and motivated, Haynesworth is a highly productive tackle and would be a great fit along Philadelphia’s D-line. That said, he’s an excuse machine and his attitude has been an issue not only in Washington, but in Tennessee as well.
