Redskins trade-a-thon: Haynesworth next?

The hysteria surrounding the Redskins' landing of former Eagles QB Donovan McNabb in a trade hasn't even settled yet, and the 'Skins are already eyeballing another big deal.

This time, they're reportedly looking for offers for DT Albert Haynesworth , says the Washington Post .

Haynesworth was paid a monsterous $21 million bonus by the Redskins on April 1, but already, coach Mike Shanahan has apparently asked GM Bruce Allen to start looking for teams that might want to deal for him.

The team officially declined comment to the Post , but flatly denied trade rumors to ESPN.

hich cited people familiar with the situation in noting that the Redskins would prefer to send Haynesworth elsewhere before the team's minicamp on April 16, to avoid any possible distractions in the event that Haynesworth attends the voluntary camp.

Bucs could pursue Jason Taylor

The Washington Redskins released DE Jason Taylor only a few days after signing Albert Haynesworth.

Taylor's salary, age and tendency to get injured prompted the move, but according to the Tampa Tribune this might end up being great news for Buc fans.

Newly hired defensive coordinator Jim Bates coached Taylor in Miami and loves him. Tampa Bay also needs a great pass rusher who can mold Gaines Adams.

Titans expected to franchise TE Scaife

Tennessee was able to sign kicker Rob Bironas, but unable to tag defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, so the Titans will use their franchise player designation on tight end Bo Scaife, according to NFL.com.

Tennessee could not risk losing Scaife, who last season led the Titans in receptions with 58.

Scaife will be assured of making the tight end franchise number of $4.46 million.

Haynesworth suffers knee injury

The Titans lost the one player they can't afford to lose on defense.

The Tennessean reports that Albert Haynesworth injured his left knee during the closing minutes of Houston's 13-12 win over Tennessee on Sunday. Early indications are he suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament (MCL) that could sideline him for the final two games of the regular season.

Haynesworth, one of the frontrunners for NFL Defensive Player of the Year, walked out of the locker room on his own power but had to be carted to the team bus outside Reliant Stadium.

Haynesworth is scheduled to have an MRI in Nashville.
