With training camp opening today there will be one notable name not showing up, Albert Haynesworth. The Redskins are avoiding the circus of yesteryear by sending Haynesworth to New England.
Passing a physical may be easier said then done for Albert, he has had problems with it in the past. Bill Belichick has a history of taking in troubled players, recent examples are Randy Moss and Ryan Mallett. This trade is certainly interesting since Haynesworth will be part of a team that partakes in the 3-4 defense. That makes the two biggest training camp distractions that we were expecting are gone going into the first day of camp.
