Former Coach On Albert Haynesworth: 'I Think He's Finished'

The first event we ever covered in D.C. was Redskins training camp in 2010, or, as we later came to know it, "The Days of Big Al and Donovan." Ah, those were heady times; watching Albert Haynesworth working alone with defensive line coach Jacob Burney, waiting for Haynesworth's inevitable stroll into the facility at Redskins Park with nary a word for the awaiting media. Even by Redskins standards, it was a surreal experience.

A year ago Saturday, Haynesworth was dealt to the New England Patriots for a fifth-round draft pick, to general relief. He was later claimed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who released him in February. Now, Haynesworth's former coach is saying that the defensive tackle is a spent force in pro football.

From Reuben Frank of CSN Philadelphia.

For the record, that seven-year, $100 million deal that Washington signed him too? That would have still had four years to run if Haynesworth were to begin camp in Ashburn this week.
