Albert Haynesworth's agent has said his client will not be attending the Redskins mandatory camp, which starts on Wednesday, and that he would like a trade.
Not surprisingly, his teammates aren't thrilled with that. SB Nation D.C. has a good run down on what his teammates are saying (off the record).
One passage from Jason Reid of the Washington Post indicates his teammates don't think anything will change:
One Redskins veteran starter reminded me that Haynesworth rarely seemed happy last season despite receiving $41 million guaranteed money -- then the highest total in NFL history. So if the Redskins decline to trade Haynesworth and hold firm on their plan to have him play at a position he doesn't want to play, it's doubtful his mood would improve, the player said.
So if things won't change, the only option would be to trade him.
If the coaches don't like him, and the players don't like him, then why keep him around? I know there's the argument that you don't want to give into every player's demands because it sets a bad precedent but the Redskins hands are really tied. Haynesworth could become a major distraction.
