Buccaneers | Ex-teammate calls out Albert Haynesworth

Tue, 22 Nov 2011 08:30:05 -0800

Washington Redskins TE Chris Cooley, a former teammates of Tampa Bay Buccaneers DL Albert Haynesworth, said Haynesworth does not really enjoy playing football despite his natural talent. "The thing that I would think about Albert the way his last three years have played out, is that he hates football," Cooley said. "I'm not criticizing his character or his work or anything. My only assumption in this - and it's just an opinion - is that he does not like football, by what I've seen over the last three years. If he loved the game of football, he'd show up and love it."

Fri, 11 Nov 2011 06:30:11 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Mark Domnik said DL Albert Haynesworth will be on a short leash with the team. "Sure it is," Dominik said. "He does have history, of course.

But that's the nature of our business. He's gonna have a shorter leash, but if he's prepared and ready to play, he'll play."

Buccaneers | Albert Haynesworth excited about opportunity

Thu, 10 Nov 2011 11:24:26 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers DL Albert Haynesworth is excited about joining the Buccaneers, especially since he has great familiarity with the three technique defense that they employ. "It feels great," Haynesworth said. "It's unbelievable. Just to get off the ball and wreak havoc. That's awesome. Everybody can say, 'Oh, you're in a 4-3 defense.' But just because you're in a 4-3 defense doesn't mean (it is) what I did in Tennessee." Haynesworth said the coaches plan to play him immediately in Week 10 against the Houston Texans. However, head coach Raheem Morris is unsure of Haynesworth's immediate role.

Buccaneers | Injury led to Albert Hayensworth acquisition

Thu, 10 Nov 2011 06:10:49 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Mark Dominik said the acquisition of DL Albert Haynesworth was made due to the injury to DL Gerald McCoy (biceps). "I would say candidly that if Gerald wasn't hurt right now, I probably wouldn't do this move," Dominik said. "But because of the situation we're in, I felt Albert Haynesworth has the best ability of any defensive tackle out there. For us and for me, it made sense as an organization to bring him on board."

Buccaneers | GM discusses Albert Haynesworth acquisition

Wed, 09 Nov 2011 20:08:49 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers general Mark Dominik talked Wednesday, Nov. 9, about the team's acquisition of DL Albert Haynesworth. "The need is important. I think a thing that I'm going to take to bank on a little bit here is that our defense and what we ask the 3-technique to do, regardless of what you've seen from Albert Haynesworth over the past couple of seasons, he's been more of a 3-4 defensive end who was two-gapping. We've always felt he's a 1-gap penetrator. It made sense to us, it made sense to me to put the claim in for a guy I think can help us in this second-half stretch."

New England Patriots DL Albert Haynesworth had his snaps limited, especially in crucial third-down running situations late in the team's Week 9 loss to the New York Giants, and head coach Bill Belichick said the reason "was rotation-related." "We had a lot of defensive linemen active, so they played in different rotations," Belichick said. "Vince (Wilfork) is a guy, obviously, we don't want off the field, and they can't all play. One guy plays for a while, somebody else plays, then..."
