Default Redskins offered Haynesworth...

Source: Redskins offered Haynesworth to Eagles

By Jason La Canfora | NFL Network


The Redskins offered defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth in trade talks for Donovan McNabb, according to league sources.

Haynesworth, who clashed with coaches during his first season in Washington in 2009 and has not made a good first impression with new coach Mike Shanahan, is someone who could be had in a trade, and he was offered to the Eagles.

Other coaches said that they expect the Redskins to continue attempts to move Haynesworth, who is bucking the idea of playing nose tackle as Washington plays more 3-4 defense, according to sources. Haynesworth just received a $21 million bonus at the start of the month, and his salary would make dealing him very difficult.

The Eagles had no interest in trading for Haynesworth outright, according to a source, and thus the subject of how much of his salary and bonus payments the Redskins would be willing to absorb was never discussed. When the Redskins brought up Haynesworth they offered no financial stipulations, according to the source, but had the Eagles shown interest that matter may have come up.



It may be a little early here, but is this one of the worst FA contracts in history? Dear God, $21 mil. for a guy that is now out of his natural position and already at odds with his coaches...

This is what happens when owners run the team.

And this is why the Redskins will never be successful. Until Diaper Dan sells the team they'll generally suck.

Shanny is the idiot here. Seriously, think about it. Why force the 3-4 when the team is set up for the 4-3 and already has a good defense.

If I was Snyder this is where I tell Shanny "keep the 4-3 and make the best of it, you idgit."

Seriously, I'd tell Shanny to get a freaking clue.

I agree...Haynsworth is an absolute stud at tackle...why try to move him to nose(where he doesn't want to play)? It makes no sense and if you have one of the breast DT in the league, you don't move him out of position....that would be like the Vikings deciding to play a 3-4...absolute stupid!!

I thought Shanny spent so long getting beat on by 3-4 teams that he resisted changing for principle. Now that he was free of it and got to start new without admitting a mistake, he wasn't passing that up for the world. The best option would've been a hybrid as the transition happens even if just to appease Haynesworth enough to shut up and try hard. He has no incentive to try at this point.

No cap, hence no cap hit.

Just a nice sized hit to Dan Snyder's fan's wallet. Hey 'skins fans, enjoy your $50 10 oz beers.

Why wouldn't the Eagle's want the best DT in the league instead of a 2nd round pick? You wouldn't have to worry about the guaranteed money that he's been paid already.

What 4-3 team wouldn't jump at the chance for Haynesworth? Especially if it was for a player you were trying to ship out anyway. I don't get it. I guess maybe they were asking for some additional compensation.

Exactly. I was telling the exact same thing to my friend today. It makes no sense to switch formations with a solid squad intact.

They put together a pretty stellar defensive staff. I'd trust their judgment until the product is displayed.

Problem with that is if Snyder even remotely gave Shanny the impression he would dictate what he does with the team Shanny would be a coach elsewhere.

Its Shanny's show now and Snyder just has the pocket book.

But you are forgetting the key element here: Shanny is smarter than everybody else. Didn't you learn that when he was here?

They were barely top 20 despite games against Detroit, St Louis, Tampa Bay, Kansas City, Carolina while they sucked and Oakland.

I think time will show that Allan has alot of GM power. I also think Shanny will work with him well.

The best part of this thread is the people expounding a "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" philosophy while also supporting our coach completely changing our blocking schemes for no reason without bringing anyone in to run them.

If you will read this thread;

http://www.orangemane.com/BB/showthread.php?t=90402


you will see almost everyone that made a list mentioned the switch to ZBS without proper players to play the power scheme as a top 3 negative.
