Big Albert on the block


Aren't we glad Dan Snyder doesn't own the Eagles?  A year removed from breaking the bank to sign uber talented defensive tackle Al Haynesworth, he's now looking for some foolish team to relieve the Redskins of his absurd contract.  Rumor has it he was even dangling Haynesworth in front of the Eagles as part of the McNabb trade. 

Haynesworth is slated to earn roughly $21 million this season.  In 2009, he missed 4 games, and totalled 4 sacks in the 12 games he played in.  Haynesworth did make it pretty hard for anyone to run between the hashes against the Redskins, but he also showed why Tennessee wasn't completely out of their minds for letting one of the most dominant defenders in football walk.  With majors questions about his attitude and motivation falling on the deaf ears of Big Dan, Haynesworth became the game's highest paid defensive player (until last month when Peppers surpassed him).  And now the Redskins want someone to offer them a valuable draft pick (or picks) for a guy with a ludicrous contract who doesn't play hard all the time.  I guess Snyder can always give Al Davis a try.

Just thought I'd make a point that no matter how much the front office in Philly makes us crazy, we need to keep it in perspective that it really could be much, much worse.
