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.

Re: Mini camp news

Ok now I'm Fing confused. Please tell me how AH being offered in a trade in order to pick up McNabb constitutes AH is not being traded? It was confirmed by the Eagles.

Everyone get off your high horse and look at the facts.

I too saw a comment made by Mike Shanahan stating we was basically not calling teams and trying to see what they would give for him. In other words he is not trying to trade AH. BUT..... he also stated if the right trade scenario came along he would look into it to see if it benifited the Skins.

I know PFT is not the best news source, but they got their info from the Washington Post this time....
Shanahan says there have been no Haynesworth trade talks, at all | ProFootballTalk.com

No different then PFT though, I agree someones telling a lie.

Re: Mini camp news

Here ya go....

Shanahan calls Haynesworth trade talk "speculation" | ProFootballTalk.com

Quote:
"There is nothing to clarify," Shanahan said. "It is just speculation. He's part of the organization. I am just looking for him to come in and work and be like everyone else. No, we're not going to trade him at all, unless someone gives us something we would have to consider -- that's pretty standard with any player on your roster. He's a pretty smart guy. He's really talented. I think I can get that out of him.''

The easiest way to spread rumors in the world of sports is "sources said" nobody knows who these sources are. When you want to drive a story of your own just make-up something/anything and say sources said it. Some people have a tendency to believe everything they read.

There has been a lot of eroneous reporting in the Haynesworth case.

AH was part of the very preliminary discussions with Philly back in February

Re: Mini camp news

Redskins are putting out the word that they're taking a quarterback | ProFootballTalk.com

Right now, I'm interpreting this as a message to McNabb's agent to "get that latest contract extension offer signed, or enjoy choosing between Oakland and Buffalo next year."

I do have a strong suspicion (actually, more than a personal suspicion) that this might be more than a bluff. At least that: the Redskins haven't decided against taking Jimmy Clausen with the 4th pick.

Certainly though, it's no more likely than on the day we made the McNabb trade. Surprisingly, it's just not less likely.
