Don't Expect Haynesworth to Return to TEN

Despite cutting him a $21 million dollar check on April 1, the Washington Redskins attempted to include defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth into the deal with the Philadelphia Eagles to acquire quarterback Donovan McNabb.

The Eagles weren't interested.

Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network, who previously worked the Redskins beat for the Washington Post, reported last night that the Redskins were still trying to trade the 6-6, 350-pound defensive tackle, who apparently hasn't made a good first impression on new Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan.

ESPN's John Clayton suggested that Haynesworth could return to the Tennessee Titans, or that the Redskins could swap defensive tackles with the St. Louis Rams, with the Redskins receiving Adam Carriker, a former first-round pick out of Nebraska who may be ideally-suited to play defensive end in a 3-4, which the Redskins are in the process of converting to.

Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean doesn't foresee Haynesworth back in a Titans uniform anytime soon:

"If new Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan is already ready to move him, what makes anyone think Titans Coach Jeff Fisher is ready to take him back on? Remember, Fisher and Haynesworth didn’t always see eye-to-eye, and Haynesworth wasn’t the most popular guy with the coaching staff on his way out. If he could be had for cheap then who wouldn’t want him? But there’s nothing about Haynesworth that screams cheap."

According to former player agent and current President of the National Football Post Andrew Brandt, Haynesworth's $21 million signing bonus this year makes him untradeable.
