Washington defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth showed up Monday at Redskins Park for his postseason physical and he declined the opportunity to talk with reporters -- or coach Mike Shanahan. It was the first time he'd shown up since being suspended Dec. 7 for conduct detrimental to the team.
"The last time he was in the building, he would not meet with me," Shanahan said. "So it is what it is. . . . I thought he may stop by; wasn't really sure. He did not."
Something tells me Shanahan's not all that concerned that Haynesworth left without speaking to him. Rick Maese of the Washington Post reported that it's highly unlikely the Redskins will simply release Haynesworth without receiving some form of compensation. But I don't think there's a long line of teams out there willing to trade a pick and take on Haynesworth's $5.4 million salary in 2011. The Redskins have a better shot of receiving a draft choice for veteran quarterback Donovan McNabb.
But I'd be surprised if any team traded more than a fourth-round pick for McNabb after the way he played in 2010. Anyone disagree?
