Eagles DL coach Jim Washburn believes free agent DT Albert Haynesworth is "finished."
Washburn coached Haynesworth from 2002-08 in Tennessee. "I think he's finished. Gotta degenerative back," Washburn said. "Everybody hates him. I love him." Haynesworth hasn't made a single visit in free agency, and notched zero sacks in 13 games between the Bucs and Patriots last season. Washburn is likely right. Tue, Jul 24, 2012 10:33:00 AM

There is nothing "imminent" with free agent DT Albert Haynesworth at this time, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Schefter suggests that Haynesworth will need some injuries around the league before he gets a strong look. As he enters his age-31 season, the former All-Pro's on-field production isn't worth anything near the off-field distractions he brings to a team.

According to NFL.com's Jason La Canfora, free agent DT Albert Haynesworth may get a "looksee" from the Rams.

La Canfora made the disclosure in an off-handed tweet reply, so it's possible he's just connecting dots and not passing along sourced info. Haynesworth's best seasons, did come under Jeff Fisher in Tennessee, and Fisher hasn't publicly ruled out a reunion. Haynesworth still held his own in limited snaps as a run-stopper last season, but it's possible not even Fisher will be willing to deal with the constant headaches that typically follow the soon-to-be 31-year-old defensive tackle.

Free agent DT Albert Haynesworth confirmed that he plans to continue his playing career in 2012.

"Yeah of course. I still love the game of football," said Haynesworth. "If you can get in the right situation, it would be good for any team and for me. I'm just looking to get back on top and to be the best defensive tackle in football." Those days are long gone. Haynesworth has his work cut out for him just to land guaranteed money.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher isn't ruling out a reunion with free agent DT Albert Haynesworth.

In fact, Fisher and his staff have already discussed the possibility of signing the chronic underachiever. Fisher oversaw Haynesworth's best seasons in Nashville, but that was a half-decade ago.

Buccaneers released DT Albert Haynesworth.

Haynesworth had no chance of returning at $7.2 million. The timing suggests new coach Greg Schiano wanted no part of the headache regardless. Failing to make a positive impact in seven games with the Bucs, Haynesworth played a part in one of the league's most embarrassing defensive showings down the stretch. While his talent continues to tempt coaches around the league, Haynesworth is running out of opportunities entering his age-31 season.

In addition to a $6.7 million base salary, Albert Haynesworth is due a $400,000 roster bonus on August 1 of 2012.

He won't see either check, in all likelihood. An interesting fact: The Patriots have not lost a game since waiving Haynesworth in early November. In seven games with the Bucs, he managed 21 tackles and no sacks. The only way Haynesworth would return to Tampa would be on a massively restructured contract.

Albert Haynesworth is active for Sunday's Week 17 game against the Falcons.

Haynesworth is getting a jersey, but Roy Miller and Frank Okam are starting at the defensive tackle spots. The Bucs have no surprises in their season finale. Their inactives: QB Rudy Carpenter, WR Arrelious Benn, WR Sammie Stroughter, T Jeremy Trueblood, G Derek Hardman, DE Daniel Te'o-Nesheim and CB Anthony Gaitor.

Buccaneers declared DT Albert Haynesworth, DT Brian Price, QB Rudy Carpenter, SS Larry Asante, DE Daniel Te'o-Nesheim, OG Derek Hardman and OT James Lee inactive for Week 16 against the Redskins.

Roy Miller and Frank Okam will start for Haynesworth and Price. Hardman is being used as a ''swingman'' on the Buccaneers offensive line. Larry Asante has been active for just nine games this season.

Albert Haynesworth is in the starting lineup at defensive tackle against the Texans in Week 10.

Haynesworth will play over Roy Miller. It's still a great matchup for Houston's ground game. Bucs inactives: CB Anthony Gaitor, LB Dekoda Waston, OT Derek Hardman, OT James Lee, WR Michael Spurlock, DE Tim Crowder, and DT Frank Okam.

New Bucs DT Albert Haynesworth is expected to play a limited role in Sunday's game against Houston.

"We will see," coach Raheem Morris said. "You just have got to get him out there and see where he is and ... how well he can play." Haynesworth practiced Thursday and Friday and is working as a rotational lineman behind Brian Price and Roy Miller. The Bucs believe Haynesworth will better fit their one-gap scheme than the 3-4 defenses of New England and Washington.

GM Mark Dominik promises that DT Albert Haynesworth will have a short leash with the Bucs.

"This is predicated on losing Gerald McCoy. If that doesn't happen, we don't claim Haynesworth," Dominik acknowledged. "... You talk to anyone in the NFL, week to week, and you know you can be the hero one week, and be the villain the next ... He's gonna have a shorter leash, but if he's prepared and ready to play, he'll play."

The Bucs were the only team that submitted a waiver claim on Albert Haynesworth.

As expected, the Bucs could have simply let Haynesworth pass through waivers and then negotiated with him after that. His market value was ice cold after flaming out in New England.
Thu, Nov 10, 2011 11:57:00 AM

Bucs GM Mark Dominik said that newly acquired DT Albert Haynesworth will be evaluated "week to week" in Tampa.

In other words, the Bucs wouldn't hesitate to axe Haynesworth if he doesn't produce. "When I see him hit a gap or shoot a gap, he still can play football," Dominik said. "He's not one of these older players that really can't play anymore." The Bucs are risking just $705,882, exactly half of Haynesworth's base salary this season. With a $6.7 million salary due in 2012, Haynesworth is just in Tampa for an eight-game trial run.

Bucs claimed DT Albert Haynesworth off waivers from the Patriots.

It's an ideal landing spot for Haynesworth, who should be in for big snaps immediately with Gerald McCoy out for the season. It's a curious move by the Bucs, however, who now have to pick up the remainder of Haynesworth's 2011 salary and will be sticking a clubhouse cancer in the middle of an extremely young locker room. If Bill Belichick couldn't get through to Haynesworth, it's unlikely Raheem Morris will.
