Albert Haynesworth’s back could be forcing him into retirement.

“He calls me every night and says, ‘Hey, Wash, it’s your big black son’,” Eagles defensive line coach Jim Washburn said. “I think he’s finished. His back’s degenerative.”

This quote refers to Washburn’s knowledge of Albert Haynesworth’s current situation.

Last seen in Tampa Bay, Haynesworth has always been viewed as more trouble than he is worth and if he has in fact seen his last days in the NFL, there’s not very many people that will shed a tear.

There are some defensive tackles that play the bully position well and with intensity and they are deservedly praised for it.

Then there is Haynesworth who not only infamously almost seriously injured Andre Gurode  by removing his helmet and stomping on his face after he gave up a touchdown to Julius Jones but he soaked the Redskins for $100 million dollars that he never earned.

Of his charge Washburn was indeed very fatherly in his regards to his feelings for him.

“Everybody hated him, but I liked him,” Washburn said. “He’s one of my favorite guys.”

Sounds like Washburn needs to add an extra place setting for dinner tonight.
