Haynesworth trade talk and drama

The Albert Haynesworth trade talks should not be put to rest completely, but if a deal gets done, Jason Reid of the Washington Post believes that the other team in the transaction will have to bend. Apparently, Mike Shanahan has a reputation for holding firm to the price he sets.

Reid writes:

The Tennessee Titans would gladly welcome back Haynesworth, according to multiple people familiar with the situation. But it is believed that Titans Coach Jeff Fisher, who is said to be friendly with Shanahan, has only offered the Redskins a fourth-round draft pick.

It would be unfair to characterize the Titans as having renewed interest in Haynesworth, one of the sources explained, because the Redskins have known the Titans' position on Haynesworth since before the draft. If the Redskins want to do business with the Titans -- at the Titans' price -- then it seems Haynesworth could be moved before the October trading deadline.


It doesn’t sound like Shanahan will release Haynesworth this season, which means Dan Snyder will wind up paying $35.6 million for a distracting backup defensive lineman.

Haynesworth was inactive last week with a bad ankle (a bad attitude probably didn’t help inspire coaches to give him a whirl, either) though the team is hopeful he’ll take the field against the Rams.

P.S. Over the weekend, Haynesworth also did some more talking. On 106.7 The Fan, he said:

"I guess in this world, we don't have a lot of people with backbones. Just because somebody pay you money don't mean they'll make you do whatever they want. I mean, that means everything is for sale. I mean, I'm not for sale. Yeah, I signed the contract and got paid a lot of money, but just because, that don't mean I'm for sale or a slave or whatever."
