  • Albert Haynesworth....Discussion only

    With the sudden Albert Haynesworth events occurring with the Washington Redskins, would the Rams organization as well as rams fans be receptive to any idea of a trade and or acquiring this player.

    Factors to consider in a trade as well are Marc Bulger, Jason Campbell, as well as draft positions in the 2010 draft. It is obvious Albert Haynesworth has not lived up to expectations in Washington, so could they be looking for a way out of this huge contract? He certainly appears to be very unhappy in Washington

    I am in no way wishing for the Rams to blow 100 million on this guy, but is there any combination of events that could occurr for Haynesworth to become a Ram.

      While he'd be a nice player to have, I'd prefer Suh at this point. Even if Suh didn't exist, I don't think the Rams are in any position to be trading away the solid players or picks that would be required for Haynesworth. You asked if there was any combination of events where he's a Ram, and IMO the only way that happens is if he's cut, and really wanted to sign with the Rams for cheap. Short of that, I don't see it happening.

        Highly unlikely, this would happen. Haynesworth going into his second year getting traded would be a huge cap hit for the skins.

          Yeah, it won't happen. Their head coach is on his way out, so I bet they bring in someone else who matches his style of play, as selfish as that is.

            The cap ramifications for moving a player after signing him to such a huge deal would make any move impossible to orchestrate. Even if there isn't a cap, I can't imagine any owner being happy about shelling out tens of millions in guaranteed money only to ship the guy off the following year.

            Put this one in the "Won't Happen" column, IMO.

              Do the Rams even have the money for this guy?

                I live in the DC area and the skins fans would love to see Haynesworth go. The fans and local media feel he showed up and remains out of shape. He plays around 60% of plays when healthy. He easily gets winded and is MIA when a big push or stop is needed. Also, add the fact that he gets injured easily and on many occasions the guy is carted off the field only to return a few plays later. The guy falls down injured without being touched.

                Why would the Rams want this guy and the high dollar salary?

                  who would you rather have, haynesworth or suh?

                  espn is reporting that haynesworth can be had for a second and fourth round pick. They would be eating 31 million of the 40 million guaranteed money for one year (4 sacks). If the skins make that deal, i think from an economic point, it would certainly put them even ahead of the Drew Bennett debacle for most painful contract hit in league history.

                  Would you rather have Suh or haynseworth? How about dan williams or hayneworth? How about the 33 or haynesworth.

                  It never ceases to amaze me how draft picks are valued. Haynesworth is a proven superstar in the nfl, yet people will value highly paid rookies who have accomplished nothing at the nfl level greater than a proven all pro.

                  THis is the most screwed up point of all the economic issues in the nfl. Can anyone else name another career where someone right out of school with no experience gets paid the same money as a proven star in the profession?

                  As a lawyer, this is the equivalent of saying that someone graduating first in his class from Yale law school should make the same money as a senior partner at a major new york law firm. The comparison is a joke.

                  Albert Haynesworth might be available???
                  by Dave2oo2
                  On Mike and Mike, they talked about Albert Haynesworth having a meeting with Mike Shanahan on Wednesday. It is expected that he is going to be cut after the meeting. I really don't like the guy and think we are set on defense, however...... We play the type of defense that he likes to play in and can be a huge power house (he could be our Suh). I think he is going back to Tennessee but do you think we take a chance on him to help us get into the playoffs?

                  The Redskins offered DT Albert Haynesworth in trade talks for Donovan McNabb, according to league sources.
                  Haynesworth, who clashed with coaches in Washington last season and has not made a good first impression with new coach Mike Shanahan, is someone who could be had in a trade, and he was offered to the Eagles.
                  Other coaches said that they expect the Redskins to continue attempts to move Haynesworth, who is bucking attempts to play nose tackle with Washington playing more 3-4 now, according to sources. Haynesworth just received a $21 million bonus at the start of the month, and his salary would make dealing him very difficult.
                  The Eagles had no interest in him outright, according to a source, and thus the subject of how much of the bonus payments and salary the Redskins would absorb in a trade did not come up. When the Redskins brought up Haynesworth they offered no financial stipulations, according to the source, but had the Eagles shown interest that matter may have come up.

                  You guys interested in picking him up? Offer a nice trade something like Alex Barron, Adam Carricker, and a fifth round pick.

                  Trade with Redskins
                  by Action_Jackson
                  What do you think the Rams would need to give up to get Jason Campbell and Albert Haynesworth from the Redskins?


                  Does anyone think this is a possibility of this happening?

                  Everybody wins in Haynesworth trade
                  by ZiaRam
                  The Redskins did the right thing in dealing away Albert Haynesworth — this was addition by subtraction. The Patriots did the right thing — buying low on a uniquely skilled player (the Patriot way).

                  Its a win-win.

                  Redskins players and coaches were desperate for the Haynesworth saga to end. The circus had to leave town, and for the Redskins to get anything for a player with Haynesworth’s past, was due to take home another $5.4 million and was not a fit, is a victory.

                  And who better than Bill Belichick to round Haynesworth into shape and cull something for him? This is a desperate player who, when motivated, can do All-Pro-type things. This is it for Haynesworth, similar to when New England acquired Randy Moss (or the drafting of Ryan Mallett).

                  I dare say Haynesworth toes the line in New England and Belichick smartly finds nickel packages and matchups for him to be useful. The Pats badly need a pass rusher and this could certainly help.

                  I like this trade all the way around
