Albert Haynesworth Has Been Released
Haynesworth missed two games due to a back injury. In the six remaining games he had six tackles and zero sacks.
In Haynesworth’s last play, New York Giant Guard David Diehl blocked Haynesworth to open up a hole for Giants Running Back Brandon Jacobs to score a 10-yard touchdown with 9:10 left in the third quarter.
After the play, Patriots Assistant Coach Pepper Johnson and Haynesworth got into a heated discussion.
Haynesworth came to the Patriots after a July 28 trade with the Washington Redskins. The Patriots gave up a fifth round draft choice in the 2013 NFL draft for Haynesworth.
Haynesworth had signed a 7-year 100 million dollar free agent contract with the Redskins after a successful 2008 season where he played with the Tennessee Titans.
However Haynesworth’s tenure in Washington was rocky as Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan took him out of the starting lineup and suspended him for the final four games of the 2010 season.
