Patriots Trade For Albert Haynesworth

ESPN's Adam Schefter reporting that the Patriots have acquired Albert Haynesworth from the Redskins in exchange for a 2013 5th round pick.  An unrestricted free agent in the 2009 offseason, Haynesworth signed a seven-year, $100 million contract with the Washington Redskins on the first day of free agency, February 27, 2009. The deal paid Haynesworth $32 million in the first 13 months, including $41 million guaranteed.

The Patriots will only be on the hook for $5.4M in 2011 and $6.7M in 2012 - then comes the easy part - in 2013, Haynesworth's deal gets ridiculous, so this is basically a bargain 2 year deal.  After that, he'll be pretty old anyway...

2013: $8.5M (+ $20M "discretionary signing bonus")

2014: $10.3M

2015: $11.5M
