Some Internet reports have suggested that Pro Bowl defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth is upset about the Redskins’ shift from a 4-3 base defense to a 3-4 scheme and that he might not participate in the offseason program.
As the theory goes, Haynesworth is unwilling to shift to nose tackle because he’s opposed to simply being a “space eater.” And much of the speculation about Haynesworth’s supposed discontent has been fueled by Haynesworth’s public silence since the end of the 2009 season.
Not sure why this is “big” news, but based on recent history, if there is 100% participation then that would be a huge step in the right direction for the Redskins.
In years past, we were used to seeing players train and work out on their own. Shawn Springs, Laron Landry, among others, were notorious for skipping workouts with the team and doing it on their own.
