It certainly is not a surprise to anyone that the Redskins may be looking to move Big Albert and his $100 million deal. After word was leaked that the Redskins tried to move Big Al to Philadelphia for QB Donovan McNabb, the Redskins will most certainly pursue other possible avenues. But why? Simple. Attitude and leadership. Those are the two things that new HC Mike Shanahan has stressed, and those are two very thing Albert Haynesworth has failed to display. His absence from voluntary workouts was a message in itself. Albert is also not thrilled in the least with the idea of playing in a 3-4 defense, which likely has led to his attitude issue. The big point to remember here is, Haynesworth was a Snyder/Cerrato signing, not a Shanahan/Allen. Therefore, they are not tied to the concept of keeping Haynesworth for ego purposes.
Of course, the big problem with moving Haynesworth is not the attitude or lack of leadership, rather it is the $100 million price tag attached to the contract he signed. It may not be as bad as we think though given the fact the Redskins have already reportedly paid out $32 million to Hayneswroth.
Regardless, expect the Redskins to continue to look at trade options for Haynesworth, QB Jason Campbell, and possible S Laron Landry, who was also reportedly suggested in Philadelphia trade discussions. Pro Football Talk writes on Haynesworth trade possibilities.
