Redskins drop asking price for Albert Haynesworth
Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said yesterday that there’s a pretty good chance Albert Haynesworth will still be with the team after today’s 4 p.m. Eastern trade deadline. But that doesn’t mean Shanahan isn’t open to a trade.
In fact, Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports that the Redskins, who have consistently asked for a second-round pick in exchange for Haynesworth, could be dropping their asking price today.
The Titans, Haynesworth’s former team, appear to be the most likely to make a move to bring Haynesworth back.
Haynesworth has played in three games and missed three games this season, including the last two. Although the Redskins gave Haynesworth time off to deal with the death of his brother prior to Week Five, La Canfora reports that Haynesworth is “miffed” he didn’t play in Week Six.
