File this under “somewhat shocking.” The New England Patriots win a lot of games because of their offense. Their defensive is just horrific, so one would assume that they can’t afford to be losing players. But, after cutting Leigh Bodden a week ago, they have let go of another veteran player.
“BREAKING: The Patriots have released DT Albert Haynesworth, I’m reporting. Wow,” Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald tweets.
Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe said Monday night that Haynesworth turned in three of the worst plays every by a defensive tackle. He got “ragdolled easy,” got pancaked and then fell to the ground on an easy shove against the New York Giants Sunday. This led to a sideline confrontation with defensive line coach Pepper Johnson.
Could the Eagles be interested? Would he play hard for Jim Washburn, his old coach from Tennessee? It’s possible.
Albert clearly has enough money at this point. He’s playing…why? He has a ton of talent but he’s clearly just gutless at this point. Oh and throw in the fact that he’s a royal pain off the field too.
