Default Patriots release Haynesworth

Patriots cut DT Haynesworth, agent confirms

Patriots defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth was waived Tuesday, his agent Chad Speck confirmed.

Teams will have 24 hours to claim Haynesworth off waivers, who would be owed roughly $750,000 of his $1.5 million base salary if claimed by Wednesday afternoon. He also has playing-time incentives that would be difficult for Haynesworth to earn at this juncture, a source said.

If he is not claimed Haynesworth would become a free agent.

Several teams could use a defensive tackle, however Haynesworth's ineffective play and aloof behavior that has rankled teammates and coaches at previous stops at Tennessee and Washington could hinder his employment. Haynesworth got into a shouting match with defensive line coach Pepper Johnson during Sunday's loss to the Giants, but a source with knowledge of the situation said Haynesworth, who had just three tackles this season, was told by the Patriots that his behavior did not factor into his release.

"He was told it just wasn't a good fit and they wanted to end it now," the source said.

Haynesworth was traded to New England before the 2011 season from Washington, where he clashed with coach Mike Shanahan a season after being signed to a $100 million free-agent contract by the previous coaching-management regime. Haynesworth spent the first seven seasons of his career with the Titans, where at times he was considered one of the most dominant defensive linemen in the NFL.

Bringing in Haynesworth and OchoCinco certainly were 2 more brilliant personnel moves by the peerless front office of the Patriots

Ok between Haynesworth and Ocho, can we call Belichick overrated now as a talent evaluator? He gave up draft picks for both these guys.
