“Washburn was said to be interested in a reunion with Haynesworth last summer, and to have been hoping the Redskins would cut him so the Eagles could bring him in. Not wanting to risk playing against an angry, motivated Haynesworth twice a year, Mike Shanahan traded him outside the division. But now, he's just sitting there, probably not getting very many offers, and available for Washburn and the Eagles if they want him.”
Haynesworth turns 31 in June so it can be expected that there is still a lot left in the tank. The Eagles need for a defensive tackle is no secret, especially with some mock drafts have the Eagles taking Penn State DT Devon Still with the 15th overall pick. Haynesworth could (I emphasize “COULD”) help solidify the Eagles defensive tackle position to allow them to focus on other glaring needs in the draft like, perhaps, linebacker.
