Report: Redskins Still Trying To Trade Albert Haynesworth

I know, I know, it isn't exactly news that the Redskins are dismayed with Albert Haynesworth. He's barely attended any of the Redskins' voluntary workouts, which is problematic considering the Redskins are switching to a 3-4 defense. Haynesworth isn't thrilled with this, and he's responded with veiled shots in the press in addition to his absence from Redskins Park.

With all this going on, the Redskins are reportedly still hoping to trade Haynesworth before the start of the season, according to Jason Reid of the Washington Post.

The Redskins still would prefer to trade Haynesworth before the season, according to people with knowledge of the situation, if they receive what they want in exchange for a player who has appeared in only 12 games for them and received $32 million - including $21 million on April 1.    

Haynesworth is just one year removed from being arguably the best defensive lineman in football, so he can definitely play. But his attitude, combined with his cost, is dragging down his value on the open market. The Redskins tried and failed to trade him on draft day. I'd be surprised if anything changes now that we're heading into training camp.
