from Redskins Insider...

...The Redskins sent Campbell, their starter for three-plus seasons, to Oakland for a fourth-round pick in the 2012 draft, but retained the disgruntled Haynesworth, who does not want to play nose tackle in the team's new 3-4 scheme. Allen reiterated that the Redskins expect Haynesworth to be with them this season. "Believe me that Albert's agent has known from the first week the league year started what the thoughts were," Allen said. "We know where Albert stands and he knows where we stand. We look forward to having him have a productive season."

too me though, allen saying "we know where albert stands and he knows where we stand" is not the same as your earlier post:
Quote:
Shanny has clearly stated, even just since Friday, that his stance is firm as far as how they are going to play Albert at NT plenty...
imo, allen is talking about their stance as it pertains to how they feel about albert missing voluntary workouts, not about his defensive position.
matter of fact i just read somewhere that the skins plan on using albert at nose tackle, defensive tackle and defensive end.

Re: Albert Haynesworth and His Trainer

as for haynesworth, he just got a 20 mill dollar bonus. him not coming to voluntary camps shows what he's all about. it's all about the dollars with him while he buys up his speed boats. lets be real, he is not focussing on football. if he were he would be coming to ashburn to get to know the new defense and show he is a leader. it also is saying something that we could not get a 2nd round draft pick for him. i don't think any team is seeing him as a good situation.

i feel like i'm defending albert alot and thats not my intention. i really wish and feel like he should be at redskins park with his teammates but in his,here i go again, defense he did have his most productive season after training on his own with the same guy he's training with now. hopefully he shows up in great shape and has a great season.

Re: Albert Haynesworth and His Trainer

i agree he should. but history shows when they get paid they lay back and slack. the fact he is not showing up and the fact we can't get a 2nd rounder for him draft day shows something.

Re: Albert Haynesworth and His Trainer

it was also mentioned before we signed him that he was playing a career year during a contract year and he would be a problem after. don't overlook that. i like him when he is playing, i hate him when he is tired and acting like his knee is blown out cause he is tired and needs to sit. we all saw that last year.

Re: Albert Haynesworth and His Trainer

The notion that Albert is simply lazy, and therefor skipping voluntary workouts, is...effing retarded. By all accounts he's using his own money (I'm sure all that individual training doesn't come cheap) to be in top condition for this season.

I mean this Haynesworth controversy has really been cast in the wrong light IMHO. Look,we've got the most dominant defensive player in the game on our roster, and he's committed to being the best he's ever been. The real controversy is why our coaching staff isn't building the defense around Haynesworth.

- By keeping the 4-3 system we would be just a player or two away from sheer dominance. A legit top FS alone would probably have been enough.

- The defensive roster (still) doesn't look like a 3-4 defense on the verge of greatness. Most of our guys are tailor made for the 4-3...like big Al.

- The notion Shanny/Haslett can devise such a brilliant 3-4 scheme that they can 1) waist the best defensive player in football and 2) basically go against the grain of the roster, and somehow expect a better outcome than simply shoring up a position or two in the 4-3, is r i d i c u l o u s.

Re: Albert Haynesworth and His Trainer

are you serious? please look at the history and the facts. he played hard in a contract year, played when he felt like it last year, and has created controversy this year. weather you want to accept it or not he was shopped for a late 1st round pick in this draft and nobody wanted any parts.

Re: Albert Haynesworth and His Trainer

I care most about what he produces on the field...I hope that he is a monster at us for NT or end or wherever we place him this season. he just needs to be disruptive to free up the RAK! he may not be happy playing NT...but hey...i'm sure he'll do just fine. What should he care where he plays anyways? If his ultimate goal is winning a championship he should focus on what to do that is best for the team.

Haynesworth's last two years in Tennessee were his best years, so not just his last year. Whether it was money driven or not, the guy has talent. While players have responsibility of their own, people like you that complain about someone like Haynesworth, fails to forget the terrible state of our front office and coaching staff last year. Our team has repeatedly shown to acquire players and fail to use them to the best of their ability. Yet despite being out of shape, AH was a force in the defensive line and made that part of the defense much better. It didn't win games, but that's on the defensive coaches and not AH, he came and did his job, resulting in Orakpo and Carter getting a ton of sacks.

Personally, I think people need to get over the fact that Vinny and Snyder gave Haynesworth a $100 mil contract and brought him to a team with poor leadership and discipline. I have the sense that a lot of people hate Haynesworth and bitch about him because they can't get over that. Just get over it, that was a terrible decision by the team, and he was brought over to a team that was going to lose no matter what. Haynesworth has put a lot on his shoulders by making the decision to work out on his own, and prove that last year was just the result of the terrible situation that this team was. Now he needs to prove that to the coaching staff.

Re: Albert Haynesworth and His Trainer

Bad teams/organizations tend to pin their failures on their best players, and in my opinion, our best players last season were Jason Campbell on offense, and Albert Haynesworth on defense.

Good organizations would stick together and quietly fix the problems. Just a heads up if Donovan McNabb and Brian Orakpo start getting blamed for our struggles next year.
