Once again we hear that Albert Haynesworth is going to be looking for a new job. This time however, it might be his last stop. With the Patriots dropping Albert, we can all see that this will probably be his last stop in the NFL. If we have learned anything over the past few years, it’s that when Coach Bill says goodbye it usually means the end of your career, just ask Randy Moss.
Albert hasn’t started a game in 2 seasons. He is a ten year vet and I have to believe it’s really over for him. Even if it isn’t what’s he got left in the tank, maybe one more team? He’s gone after next season’s new crop of defensive tackles come to town. Nope, Haynsworth will more than likely fade away into the sunset. Maybe he’ll blow all his money in two years and end up living in his parent’s house like Chris McAllister.
After hearing what Warren Sapp had to say yesterday on NESN, I now firmly believe that the the second he signed the $100 million dollar contract he switched off and mailed it in. The was the same guy who stepped on the head of another player during an NFL game, on purpose. We are not talking about a nice guy. I also remember a story ESPN :60 did on him just after signing his contract. He spoke about all his new toys and the fact that he was the first player in NFL history to sign a $100 million contract. What he didn’t talk about was his desire to wreak havoc on the other side of the ball for the Redskins.
So Fat Albert, what is your next step? You’ll never be signed to a contract higher than the veteran’s minimum ever again if you want to play in the NFL. So what’s your next move? I know one thing his cards have taken a beating over the past two years. Just take a look at the only autographed card of his that sold in the past two weeks. In my opinion he is a must sell and never buy again.
What is your take on Albert?
