Are you happy now?



Haynesworth The photo to the left is of NFL defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth. In the photo, he's wearing a Washington Redskins jersey. How happy are you now that he isn't wearing a Tampa Bay Bucs jersey? Tampa Bay made a big pitch last offseason to get Haynesworth, who instead went to D.C. for a seven-year, $100-million deal. He already has been paid $32-million of a guaranteed $41-million. Yet despite all that money, Haynesworth failed to report to the Redskins mandatory two-day minicamp. Teammates are calling him "selfish,'' the media is calling him a "diva'' and it's not too far-fetched for any of us to call him a "bust'' in a Redskins uniform. Now the Redskins want a $21-million signing bonus back and it appears Haynesworth will be either traded or released. But who wants him? If you're a Tampa Bay fan and you raised your hand, shame on you. This guy is a mess. Bucs fans should be happy he didn't end up here last year and should be especially happy if he doesn't end up here this year.
