Haynesworth to Tampa?

Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune talked about the Buccaneers as being a team that could attempt to acquire Albert Hanyesworth. Here are a couple of quotes from his interview:

“It makes a great deal of sense and here’s why,” Cummings said. “Don’t forget, the Buccaneers were the team that offered Albert Haynesworth more money than anybody else in the NFL last year.  A lot of people forget that — conveniently want to ignore that fact.

“Let’s not forget, Bruce Allen drafted Michael Clayton,” Cummings said.  “One thing Bruce Allen will always do as an NFL General Manager is try to prove that many mistakes he’s made as a General Manager were not mistakes at all.  He’s not good at what he does.  And he makes a situation worse by trying to constantly prove that he did not make a mistake in drafting this guy in the first round, second round, third round. . . .  I wouldn’t be surprised to see him do it again.”

With all things considered, this would be a shocker of a trade if it happened. Michael Clayton can not have that much value and the team would still have to be willing to pay a player who has blatantly under performed for the first year of his massive contract. I agree that Bruce Allen has made his share of bad decisions but this may only add to his total.v
