Albert Haynesworth 100 Million Dollar Man

Albert Haynesworth was expecting a big payday and that is exactly what he got to the tune of 100 million dollars over seven years. Haynesworth who played for the Tennessee Titans and had a banner season this year wanted some big money and the Washington Redskins rolled the brinks truck up to him and signed him. We will have to see if Haynesworth lives up to his tag of the 100 million dollar man now.

The Washington Redskins also signed Deangelo Hall to a 54 million dollar deal. I guess there is no recession in Washington as Daniel Sndyer has never been afraid to spend the money. This should help make his defense one of the best in the league. They were good last year, but having these two for long term can only help them.

Michael Vick Gets House Arrest

With no room for Michael Vick at a halfway house he will be confined to his home and on house arrest for the rest of his sentence. he will wear an ankle monitoring bracelet so he can be tracked. he is not allowed to leave the home unless he gets permission from his probation officer.

For Vick I will bet he cannot wait until his July release day where once again he will be a free man. It will be interesting to see how much he has learned and what he has taken from his experience. He has a tough road ahead, but one he will probably embrace and give it his best shot. he has always been that way and I do not look for that to change anytime soon. Below is a cute video with Michael Vick in it.

Tampa Bay Cut Five Including Derrick Brooks

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers seem to be cleaning house and I do not think they are going about it the right way. They brought in a much younger coach and I guess they think it is time to rebuild the franchise so they let go of five veterans from the team. As expected Ike Hillard,Joey Galloway, Warrick Dunn,and Cato June were released. Now the shocker was they also cut 11 time Pro-Bowler derrick Brooks who is 35 years old which is a shock to many including me.

Yes, Brooks has slowed up some, but still is a player that you can use to win games. Trust me if Jon Gruden did not think Brooks could get the job done he would have cut him a long time ago. The Buccaneers said they wanted to head in a direction of younger players, but the bottom line is if the younger players were better they would have been playing. It looks like it maybe a very long season for Buccaneer fans and that is a shame.
