With only a few hours left until the 4 p.m. NFL Trade Deadline, it appears the Washington Redskins may be considering lowering their asking price for disgruntled defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth. For a while, the Redskins were reportedly asking for a second-round pick in return for Haynesworth, but according to a report from NFL.com's Jason La Canfora, they may be willing to now accept less in return.
The Redskins have been holding out for a second-round pick, according to sources, but the price could be dropping, sources say, with the deadline now just hours away.
Haynesworth was clearly upset about being inactive for last Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts, and said he wouldn't be surprised if he was traded. The Tennessee Titans, Haynesworth's former club, remain the team most interested in Haynesworth, and according to La Canfora, they have had the "most consistent contact" with the Redskins about Haynesworth.
Redskins general manager Bruce Allen told NBC's Andrea Kramer that Haynesworth would not be traded, and coach Mike Shanahan said yesterday that there's a "pretty good chance" he would be with the team past this week. However, La Canfora writes that, regardless of what happens today, Haynesworth is not a part of the team's long-term plans.
