Haynesworth, Haslett, and Shanahan Met Today

According to the Washington Post:

sources said Haynesworth, realizing the Redskins probably would not trade him, reached out to Haslett in an effort to end his war with the organization. During their conversations, Haslett made it clear to Haynesworth what he expected of him and what Haynesworth could count on in return. Haslett explained how he envisioned using Haynesworth in the Redskins’ new 3-4 scheme as a nose tackle and defensive end.Haynesworth told Haslett he would do what was asked of him, the sources said. After speaking with Haslett, Haynesworth confided in teammates he believes he could be productive in Haslett’s scheme and he was ready to get started.

But Haynesworth, who will not open camp on Thursday with the first-team defense, is far behind his teammates in learning the team’s new, aggressive scheme. The coaching staff and Redskins players are committed to helping Haynesworth get caught up as fast as possible, the sources said. Haynesworth must pass a physical before he can practice Thursday.

Shanahan, asked Wednesday about his conversation with Haynesworth, said it “went well.” He said of Haynesworth: “He’s here, he’s ready to go.”

But when asked whether Haynesworth will be a Redskin this season, he said: “We’ll see.”

Shanahan also said all players are healthy enough to be at camp including safety LaRon Landry and linebacker Jeremy Jarmon.

  1. It’s about time Haynesworth… This honestly makes the season start to look a little better, and we’re definitely improving greatly on last season’s debauchery. But, if you are a DC sports fan in general, go to and vote on the Fan Choice Awards for the best in DC, including best play, best cheerleaders (the Redskins Cheerleaders are nominated) and more!
