Default Report: Haynesworth to the Skins

Quote:
Well, Lance Zierlein was right. (Peter King, too.)

Multiple members of the media are reporting that defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth has agreed to terms with the Washington Redskins.

The news comes from both Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean and Adam Schefter of NFL Network.

It’s a seven-year, $100-million deal with an incredible $41 million in guaranteed money.

The maximum value of the package is $115 million.

As we’ve previously said, the fact that the Titans and the Lions weren’t major players in the pursuit of Haynesworth tells us all we need to know; both teams have decided that Haynesworth isn’t worth the money.

Otherwise, the team with which Haynesworth spent seven seasons or his former defensive coordinator (who now is the head coach in Detroit) would have stepped up to the plate.

But maybe Haynesworth won’t go soft now that he no longer has to worry about money. Maybe, as he recently said, he’ll be motivated to prove the naysayers wrong.

And maybe he won’t loose his cool and step on a guy’s unhelmeted head.

And maybe he won’t leave practice and come back with a pipe. (Not a pipe for smoking crack, but a pipe for cracking skulls.)

And maybe he’ll learn how to obey all posted speed limits and not cause accidents that require 25-year-old kids to get hip replacements.

And maybe he’ll learn how to fly, without a plane.

And maybe the Redskins finally will learn that this isn’t the way to build a championship football team.

Ha Ha. Of course Fat Al is going to suck now. He has nothing left to play for.

He played for the Titans for 7 years and didn't make a name for himself till he stomped on some poor guys head three years ago. He didn't get good till it was his contract two years ago.

Over paid, over priced, over hyped. This will be the last we speak of fat boy unless we are talking about how much trouble the Skins are in cus of his contract.

Dan Snyder is like George Steinbrenner when it comes to picking talent for his franchise. Just throw a bunch of money at guys with talent no matter how they fit in with the squad. I will be curious to see how the skins do with that much money obligated to two players.

I ma glad to have Fat Al out of the AFC South thats for sure.

Contracts like that just drive up the price for every other FA out there...

Redskins fans are gonna be the ones to pay ultimately. Same as everywhere else...you got high dollar products and you pass the cost on to the consumer.

I was priced out of the NFL a long time ago.

Quote:
Hall accepted a six-year $54 million deal that included $22.5 million in guarantees, giving the 25-year-old cornerback his second big payday in as many years. Hall was guaranteed around $24 million in a seven-year, $70 million contract he signed a year ago with Oakland, but he struggled to adjust to the Raiders' man-to-man defense and was waived after eight games.
This greatly effects the Texans and what D-Rob is going to want.

That Titans defense just got weaker.

I don't care what anybody says in contradiction to my statement.

We had an easier time beating the Titans last season with Haynesworth on the bench. He was getting double-teamed and STILL breaking through to get to the ball. He is very disruptive. Period.

KVB is a good player, don't get me wrong. But he's also benefiting from playing alongside Haynesworth. The Titans better find AH's replacement int he draft, and I don't think they will.

Gone to the NFC. That's even better.
