Report: Redskins Not Shopping Albert Haynesworth

The rumor mill has been churning about the possibility of the Redskins trading DT Albert Haynesworth. He's been connected to the Eagles (they said no) and the Titans.

ESPN's Adam Schefter says not so fast on a trade.

Despite rampant speculation, Redskins NOT shopping Albert Haynesworth and haven't had any trade discussions regarding him since March 31.    

March 31st is a key date because Haynesworth was due a $21 million bonus on April 1st. Since that date has passed, the Redskins are contractually obligated to pay that amount.

Some would think that since they just paid him all that money, there's no way he would be traded now. While that may be true, it's also possible a trade partner could entice the Redskins to part ways with him by reimbursing them a portion of that $21 million.

Basically, what we get from Schefter here is that Haynesworth was definitely being shopped but once that $21 million was paid, they haven't talked with anyone.

That doesn't mean someone won't offer them a deal that will allow them to get out of the contract.
