No Haynesworth deal this week

Washington Redskins defensive linebacker Albert Haynesworth walks off the field after practice at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Virginia, on August 5, 2010. Haynesworth has still not passed a conditioning test and is not practicing with the team.   UPI/Roger L. Wollenberg Photo via Newscom away the party favors.

Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan tried to put a damper on the Albert Haynesworth-to-Titans trade talk by saying the defensive tackle “will be with our team on Sunday.”

However, he might be with the Titans by Tuesday.

It is clear that Haynesworth is not happy with the prospect of playing nose guard and that he is exerting far less than 100 percent effort in his second season with the Skins.

Ironically, due to the improvement of Tennessee’s defensive linemen, the Titans may not need Haynesworth. Even so, you’d be foolish not to make a reasonable offer to the Redskins for a player who was the best player on the Titans’ roster in 2008.

I expect Haynesworth will be one happy and highly-motivated player if traded. Keep your fingers crossed.
