Well I just can't let it go ...I think the Redskins would love to trade Haynesworth and I think Haynesworth would like it too.

The following article in the Washington Post in my mind underlines this.

Shanahan specifically stressed that he expected his team leaders to attend the team workout - which Haynesworth didn't do. And although Shanahan said that he appreciated the mano a mano talk they had - and Haynesworth earlier commented on his willingness to play where the team needs him - I think that if you read between the lines it is obvious that this is not a marriage out of love.

Especially because a lot of the other leading players have been so outspoken on how things have changed for the better with Shanahan at the helm.

I honestly think that The Redskins should consider cutting their losses and get the most out of a trade with Haynesworth. If Shanahan doesn't win him over he could spell serious trouble.

After 2010 - from what I have read - Haynesworth could bye himself out of the contract and become a free agent. This however could cost him the same amount of $ that he is due from Washington in April. (about 20 mil)

But in a trade with the Rams with Haynesworth and Campbell for the Rams no. 1 pick I think there could be some negotiation on solving the financial aspects for the benefit of all parties.

And I still think that this trade could be awesome for all parties.
