    Redskins trade Haynesworth to...

    the New England Patriots. Patriots give up a 5th round draft pick in 2013.

    Interesting that the Patriots, who run a 3-4 defense, trade for a guy that didn't want to play in a 3-4 defense while in Washington. Are the Pats moving to a 4-3?

    Thank God. Guy was a cancer here in DC. Bill will turn him back into an All-Pro but I'm just glad he is gone.

    Re: Redskins trade Haynesworth to...

    People are saying the Patriots run a hybrid 4-3, 3-4 defense. The Pats got a steal, and I think that means the Jets are going to go after Namdi Asamogha hard.

    Re: Redskins trade Haynesworth to...

    The Patriots are masters at deals like this...a fifth round pick for a guy who just a year or 2 ago got a $100 million contract. Crazy.

    Any other team in the world does this and it's a bad move. Pats do it and it's the best thing ever.

    Re: Redskins trade Haynesworth to...

    How do trades work in the NFL? Does Haynesworth get the same contract he had with Washington? If so, It's not really a steal for New England.

    I've been reading that he is due $5 mil this year with an escalator next year. I'm sure the deal will get restructured though.
