RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Albert Haynesworth.
Haynesworth, who wore his welcome out in Washington, gives New England another veteran defensive lineman, joining a group that includes Vince Wilfork, Gerard Warren and Mike Wright. The Patriots employ a base 3-4 defense, but use multiple personnel in multiple fronts, so Haynesworth could find himself on the field providing some interior pass rush.
Haynesworth's 2009 season was a statistical disappointment. He only played in 12 games and recorded four sacks and no fumbles. His teammates thrived around him due to the attention he draws from the offense. He enters 2010 upset with the team's new 3-4 defense. He has skipped all voluntary workouts and the mandatory minicamp. He accepted a $21 million bonus this offseason and then requested to be traded. The team intends to keep him on the roster but many teammates are upset over his selfishness and putting himself above the team. He has stated he will participate in training camp but it's uncertain if he will still be with the team once the season starts. If he does play with the Redskins it's difficult to know what to expect. He could thrive in Jim Haslett's aggressive defense or potentially dog the season and not put forth 100%. He is a big question mark going into 2010.
Haynesworth is coming off a career year in 2008 where he recorded 41 tackles, 8.5 sacks and three forced fumbles in 14 games - impressive numbers for a defensive tackle. He was rewarded by the Redskins with the largest defensive contract, $100 million over seven years. After the big payday there are concerns he will show up overweight and out of shape. This was not the case in offseason workouts. He will be expected to participate in more plays than in the past. Health is also a concern since he has not played all 16 games since his rookie season in 2002. Also big name defensive lineman have failed to have success in Greg Blache's schemes which require discipline (re Jason Taylor). That being said, Haynesworth is a unique talent and will have plenty of opportunities to attack the passer in 2009.
Haynesworth is one of the best defensive tackles in the league, but usually provides more value in real life than in fantasy. Last season was different as Haynesworth registered a career-high 6.0 sacks. If Jevon Kearse can have a bounce back season, Haynesworth could benefit from fewer double teams and increase his totals across the board.
Haynesworth is expected to be the starting right defensive tackle for the Titans. He is expected to help plug the middle and improve the Titans run defense, which was one of the worst in the NFL last season. Haynesworth played in 11 games last season with 10 starts. He had 59 tackles, two sacks, 13 quarterback pressures and three tackles for loss. He is perhaps most remembered for missing five games last season due to being placed on the reserve/suspended list for stomping on the head of Dallas center Andre Gurode.
Haynesworth will start at defensive right tackle in 2006. He could tally nice tackle numbers, but often will be expected to absorb blocks and let the linebackers step in to make hits.
Haynesworth will start at defensive tackle for the Titans, but is not expected to put up fantasy-worthy numbers this season.
The 15th pick in the 2002 draft has had some major problems on and off the field since entering the league. On the field, Haynesworth missed much of 2003 with an elbow injury and has not lived up to expectations. Off the field, Haynesworth has gotten into physical fights with teammates and verbal spats with coaches. Haynesworth certainly has the talent and the size (6-6, 320 lbs.) to be a dominate player, but we don't see him doing anything special this season.
The departure of defensive tackles Henry Ford and John Thornton over the offseason means that Haynesworth will step into a starting role this season. Despite starting just three games last season, Haynesworth ranked second on the team with 23 QB pressures and seven tackles for loss. Haynesworth will be instrumental in a run defense that ranked second in the league last year.
