Haynesworth's Agent: 'He Does Not Want To Play For The Washington Redskins'

New, 1 comment

Just a day before he was scheduled to attend the Redskins mandatory minicamp, Albert Haynesworth, through his agent, has demanded a trade. Via Redskins Insider:

"The Redskins are trying to establish a new regime with new schemes at Redskins Park, and it is not an organization that Albert would have ever been attracted to just a short year ago - regardless of the money," agent Chad Speck said in a phone interview. "He has made it clear to me that he does not want to play for the Washington Redskins.

"This situation will be a distraction to the Redskins and to Albert and his teammates. I am certain [head coach] Mike [Shanahan] and [General Manager] Bruce [Allen] want to get the most out of their first year and it's probably in everyone's best interests for the Redskins to make a deal and trade Albert."

Teams that have reportedly shown interest in the 350 pound defensive tackle include the Detroit Lions, Oakland Raiders, and his former team, the Tennessee Titans, among others.
