Albert Haynesworth Signs 7yr. 100 Million Deal With the Washington Redskins

Oh oh Donovan, Eli, Tony, Brandon, Brian and Marion. I hope you got some sleep last night because the ‘Skins just powered up and signed run stopper, quarterback dropper Albert Haynesworth away from the Tennessee Titans. The 2002 first round pick out of the University of Tennessee will earn 32 million the first 13 months of the deal. 41million is guaranteed and with incentives, the deal could reach 115 million. The base makes him the highest paid defensive player in the league. Haynesworth, a two time All-Pro who led the Titans with 8.5 sacks, is tailor made for the NFC East and the division will scramble during the free agency period to counteract this great signing. You gotta give it Dan Snyder, he is a go getter no matter what the past says. The Titans offered 11 million a season. What would you do?
