Everyone wins in Haynesworth trade

The Redskins did the right thing in dealing away Albert Haynesworth — this was addition by subtraction. The Patriots did the right thing — buying low on a uniquely skilled player (the Patriot way).

Its a win-win.

Redskins players and coaches were desperate for the Haynesworth saga to end. The circus had to leave town, and for the Redskins to get anything for a player with Haynesworth’s past, was due to take home another $5.4 million and was not a fit, is a victory.

And who better than Bill Belichick to round Haynesworth into shape and cull something for him? This is a desperate player who, when motivated, can do All-Pro-type things. This is it for Haynesworth, similar to when New England acquired Randy Moss (or the drafting of Ryan Mallett).

I dare say Haynesworth toes the line in New England and Belichick smartly finds nickel packages and matchups for him to be useful. The Pats badly need a pass rusher and this could certainly help.

I like this trade all the way around.
