The Patriots have parted ways with defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, who was attempting to resurrect his career after a failed run with the Redskins. The news was first reported by Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald.
Haynesworth had three tackles and zero sacks in eight games, and was involved in a sideline shouting match with Patriots defensive line coach Pepper Johnson during New England's 24-20 loss to the Giants on Sunday.
Haynesworth once described the trade that sent him from Washington to New England as "career-saving."
“If God forbid, I got cut from this team, I know I could go out there and play for another team,” Haynesworth said on Sept. 3. ”But, I feel like this is going to be the last place I’m going to play. If it doesn’t work out here, I’m not going to play anywhere else.”
Guess we'll soon find out.
Haynesworth was acquired from the Redskins for a fifth-round pick in the 2013 draft.
