The New England Patriots finally gave up on former All-Pro defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth today…
Bucs made only claim on Haynesworth
The Buccaneers were in dire need of interior defensive line help with defensive tackle Gerald McCoy placed on injured reserve this week, ending his season. They signed former Buffalo Bills first-round defensive tackle John McCargo on Tuesday, as first reported by Scout.
Haynesworth is a former Tennessee Titans first-round draft pick who got into a sideline argument with defensive line coach Pepper Johnson days ago.
Acquired in a trade from the Washington Redskins this preseason, Haynesworth was signed by Washington to a seven-year, $100 million contract two years ago.
However, he quickly fell out of favor with the Redskins.
He recorded only 53 tackles and 6 1/2 sacks in two seasons. For more coverage of the NFL, go to profootball.scout.com. Follow me on Twitter: @RavensInsider
