Haynesworth to skip minicamp, formally asks for trade
 
Quote:

Washington Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth will skip the team's mandatory minicamp and has formally requested a trade, his agent, Chad Speck, told NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora.

"He is frustrated that he was not used last year the way he was promised he would be and now the current organization is not one he would have ever considered a year ago," Speck said.
Quote:

Despite receiving one of the richest contracts ever for a defensive player when he signed a seven-year, $100 million contract that included $41 million guaranteed just a year ago, Haynesworth has not been happy with the team's new coaching staff and has boycotted all but one day of the team's offseason program.

Haynesworth, a defensive tackle who has played in a 4-3 defense throughout his career, has balked at playing in the Redskins' new 3-4 scheme and is adamant against manning the nose tackle position. When he signed with the Redskins last year, they played a 4-3 base defense, but under new coordinator Jim Haslett, the team is expected to institute more 3-4 packages.
Earlier Tuesday, Washington general manager Bruce Allen indicated Haynesworth would attend minicamp.

one more question...why the hell are the skins changing over to 3-4?

they had one of the better defenses last season...and addition of Mcnabb would have automatically made them one of the top teams in the east...

If I was Washington I would be pissed at Haynesworth. What a waste of money by them.
