exactly, which is why I said "what we've been hearing so far"...AH does not have the kind of trade value a player of his caliber should b/c people know he is going to pull this bush league stuff as soon as a situation does not suit him...no team wants to trade a 1st and 2nd round pick for an, albeit supremely talented, player who is going to ditch out the second there is some change he doesn't like... sad reality

According to Shanahan's latest statements on the teams website, Haynesworth is not going to be traded. The only player whose name has been mentioned in trade is Campbell. He said AH decided to do his own thing and it's up to him to prove him wrong. He expects him to come in great shape, and Haslett said AH will play all three positions on the D-line.

That's not exactly true...Shanahan said that he is not trying to deal Haynesworth but they are listening to offers for him. That means that if the right offer came along, he would trade Haynesworth in a second

I just asked the moderator to post the link because I can't do it from this computer. Check out the link for yourself on the teams website. It does not mention what you're saying.

Shanahan was pretty blunt in his answers but I think he was using a bit of coach pre draft speak. He also said he wanted more picks, and that he was going to do what is best for the Redskins. On Thursday and Friday I imagine BA will be making and receiving many calls about acquiring picks and trading players.

Saying they "are listening to offers for him" essentially means nothing IMO. Every GM/coach in the league always will tell you they are constantly looking for ways to improve their team. If someone offered the Colts a 1st round pick for each of the next 10 years for Peyton Manning, Bill Polian would probably "listen" to that offer as well. Shopping a player is a very different story of course. And apparently we aren't shopping AH.

Shanahan said Albert Haynesworth is a key part of the Redskins plans and that there had been no mention of trading him or any other player since he's been here with the exclusion being Campbell.

Now I don't know just what to read into that, but it dosen't sound as though the intention is to trade him, unless one chooses to interpet that key part of their plans as being a trade.

Oh yes you can, Kyle. You can ask for much, much more than this current group.

No need to yell. This is the "First Mini-Camp is a Wrap" story. Am I missing something?

Well, it sure seemed like the Skins have been listening to, and at some points up till now, actively seeking trades of various players. But I agree Shanahan's answers were pretty dismissive of potential trades. I don't know how to reconcile those two things other than to say Shanahan's comments were more so pre draft speak and proper team building comments.

In the thread "pick our starters on the O-line" I had Hicks starting at RT, but Heyer at LT has me scratching my head.
