NFL News: Albert Haynesworth Indited

Tim Persinko of NBC Washington reports that the Washington Redskins DT Albert Haynesworth has been indited on a misdemeanor sexual abuse charge from back in back in February.

Haynesworth reportedly “grabbed and caressed” a waitress’s breast after she allowed him to place his credit card in her pocket due to her hands being full.

Albert is facing a possible 180 days in jail and a fine of up to $1,000 for the incident.

 

  • NFL Trade Rumors

    Hanyesworth has zero value so the only way that he’s going to find himself on a new team is if the Redskins and Mike Shanahan release him. There has been so much made about a persons character throughout the months leading up to the draft, I can’t imagine that NFL teams would be willing to part with any amount of value in return for a guy that’s carried multiple issues over his career.

    If he’s released, there are two teams that I could see taking a chance on him. The first is the Eagles because they’ve brought in Haynesworth former D-line coach Jim Washburn who’s very well respected throughout the NFL. If anyone can get him to produce it’s Washburn.

    The other team would be the Detroit Lions. Jim Schwartz is his former defensive coach and they could use another big body to place next to Suh.

    Both teams use a 4-3 defense which is one of the issues that caused problems for the Redskins and Haynesworth.

    I like your suggestion about the Bears taking a chance on him because of the veteran leadership. I agree that he would be more willing to produce along side of some well respected players like Briggs, Urlacher and Peppers but the real issue is that he shouldn’t have to be place in a perfect situation in order for him to produce. Oh yeah and he’s just been indited for sexual assault.

    Well it seem clear that Albert has officially lost his mind. With that being said, I think he could help a few team out there. Is it your feeling that he will be released? Or do you see him being traded? I can’t imagine that if he were traded that he would bring in anything more than a 5th rounder and that may be too high. Your thoughts?
    As a Bears, I could see him helping out Chicago’s D. I generally am apprehensive about players with “troubled” pasts, but I think it could work in this situation. Chicago is a contender (assuming some help is added to the OL) and has a veteran defense. Da Bears need help at that position and Albert’s ability vs price could be a steal. With players like Urlacher, Peppers and Briggs on defense to help keep Albert in line, do you see this scenario as a possibility? Or even likely?
