Shocking news you’ll never believe: Albert Haynesworth does not want to play for the Redskins anymore. Jason Reid informs us that Big Al won’t show up to mandatory camp on Wednesday, and that he has no intentions of playing for the Redskins and their silly 3-4 defense.
Take it away, Haynesworth’s agent:
“The Redskins are trying to establish a new regime with new schemes at Redskins Park, and it is not an organization that Albert would have ever been attracted to just a short year ago – regardless of the money,” agent Chad Speck said in a phone interview. “He has made it clear to me that he does not want to play for the Washington Redskins.
“This situation will be a distraction to the Redskins and to Albert and his teammates. I am certain [head coach] Mike [Shanahan] and [General Manager] Bruce [Allen] want to get the most out of their first year and it’s probably in everyone’s best interests for the Redskins to make a deal and trade Albert.”
