- Jason Cole at Yahoo! Sports has a fascinating profile of DT Albert Haynesworth. From an on-the-field standpoint, the most interesting thing is just how good a lot of people believe Haynesworth can be:
“There aren’t many times when you have a player like that hit free agency, a guy who can change the balance of power,” one long-time agent said. “You’ve had Reggie White and Deion Sanders [with San Francisco and Dallas], just a couple of guys with that kind of talent [who were able] to switch teams. They helped their teams win Super Bowls. That’s huge and it helps the case for the players.
“Most of the time, the players who hit free agency aren’t truly premier guys. It just doesn’t happen. That’s why a lot of people look back at free agents and say, ‘Oh, that guy was a bust.’ He wasn’t really a bust, he just wasn’t worth all the excitement that was created. It’s a real perception thing.”
