It is official, Albert Haynesworth is a Washington Redskin. At first I was very skeptical of this move, but the more and more I think about it, I am starting to love it. Haynesworth is a game changer and I would be happy to get 12-14 games a year if he is healthy come playoffs. He makes your ends better, and he allows the corners to cover less.
The terms of the deal are way blown out of proportion. This is more of a 4 year $48 million dollar deal instead of a 7 year $100M+ deal. His salary in year 5 is $29M. I guarantee the current contract will not reach that 5th year. This is good PR for his agent though. The Redskins will pay today and worry about the future when it comes. The Skins are a very cap manipulative team, so I trust that this deal will not hold them back from pursuing other guys this year or next.
