Maybe it’s not all dark clouds in Washington for Albert Haynesworth.
We haven’t heard much on the Haynesworth front in recent weeks, and trade speculation involving the Titans as the main suitor has dissipated. Haynesworth is playing more, and in doing so is also drawing positive feedback from Redskins coach Mike Shanahan.
“I thought it was, by far, Albert’s best game since I’ve been here,” Shanahan said, per Jason Reid of The Washington Post. “I thought he played very good. Played practically 30 plays, had a couple of holding calls against him, which were difference makers in the game. Just had a lot of effort. I was pleased with his performance.”
Reid called Haynesworth a “disruptive force” against the Eagles. It would be a huge boost to the Redskins if could end up being a difference-maker this season.
