I think the next couple days will finally put a lid on the Albert Haynesworth trade talks. There are some, both media as well as fans who for some reason seem to just be obsessed with the idea of trading him regardless of how many reports come from within the organization to the contrary. Eventually (maybe) they'll come to the realization that it's not happening, and live with it.

its not like it was all just made up. smoot said a deal seemed very close. apparently, something must have fallen through. hence the denials from shanahan and the titans. but unless you want to call smoot a liar, there's no denying that we were trying to trade him to the titans. it just didnt work out.

Yes, but it's not like the team was desperate to do so as JLC insists it is.

when did jlc use the word desperate? and if shanahan or Tennessee were, do you think they'd ever publicly admit it?

He doesn't have to, Shanahan doesn't owe anything to someone like JLC. And actually it was Andy Pollin saying that the Redskins were desperate.

I would never call anyone a liar, but I'm more inclined to believe what comes from within the Redskins organization than I am any media source. If it's a liar, then Shanahan is the culprit and I don't think he wants to be preceived as being that. The debate will answer itself shortly.

Well unless the Redskins are willing to trade AH for a 3rd rounder (which would be RIDICULOUSLY stupid) this ain't happening. Another Redskins story that JLC doesn't break.

JLC was not exactly a warm welcome when he was here serving as the Redskins beat reporter. His negative reporting was never a fan favorite.

Wanted to repost this from the draft thread as I think it explains why the JLC insist on pushing this story.

What I was referring to was this article where JLC actually got pissed at Vinny for not tipping his hand before the Jason Taylor trade. I think it's similar now where he hear's Shanahan say no and in his head he hears yes based on the experience with Vinny.

But yesterday, minutes after the afternoon practice was over, here is what Cerrato said to the local media, repeatedly: "We haven't talked to anybody yet on anything." He then denied, again, any attempts to land Taylor to representatives of virtually every media entity that approached him at Redskins Park.

Re: AH trade II La Canfora insists AH is indeed on the trading block.

If Shanahan is serious about trading big Al it will get done, and he may be all the wiser for waiting until the season gets closer. All it takes is a major injury to any one of the better DTs in the league and suddenly Al's value shoots thru the roof.

...obviously in this scenario we don't get any current compensation. But if Mike could get a 1st rd pick next year is seems safe to assume he'd take it.

Also it shows team that might be willing to give value that he is a team player and not a problem child. You never know some one might need a DT as the season moves on like a team like the Skins when J.Taylor was traded for!
Time to pay the piper? They paid him 21 million on the first. The "piper" is already paid.

Damn, we are stuck with the best d-lineman in football...What do we do now!?!

Here's what happened. Titans were trying to get him from us. We weren't trying to trade him there. We said the conversation doesn't begin until you can offer us at least a 2nd. Titans were then close to sending Bo Scaife in a deal to the Ravens that would get them a 2nd that would come to us. That deal fell through, Ravens took another TE in the draft, and that's the end of that.

Re: AH trade II La Canfora insists AH is indeed on the trading block.

That sucks rocks. Allen will have to go to the tried and true policy of signing castoff FAs to plug gaps for the moment. Our FA moves of the past few weeks are in my book questionable at best.

Re: AH trade II La Canfora insists AH is indeed on the trading block.

Also, we spoke to the Vikings about their 1st overall yesterday and then their high 2nd today. But nothing came of it

Use him to destroy Tony Romo and his "wonderful group of pass catchers."
