Albert Haynesworth

Albert George Haynesworth III (born June 17, 1981) is an American football defensive tackle and is currently a free agent. He played college football at Tennessee. Originally drafted by Tennessee Titans in the first round (15th overall) of the 2002 NFL Draft, he spent his first seven NFL seasons with the Titans. An All-Pro selection in 2007 and 2008, and considered "the most dominant defensive tackle in the league", Haynesworth was a highly coveted free agent following the 2008 season, and eventually signed a seven-year, $100 million contract with the Washington Redskins in February 2009. However, with the Redskins, Haynesworth's performance was poor, so poor that he was not only regarded as the worst free agent signing in the history of the Redskins franchise, but also one of the worst free-agent signings in NFL history. Haynesworth was born in Hartsville, South Carolina. He attended Hartsville High School in Hartsville, participating in football, track, and shotput. Playing under head coach Lewis Lineberger, Haynesworth accounted for 150 tackles, 56 tackles for loss, six sacks, and six fumble recoveries during his junior year; he followed that by tallying 110 tackles, 51
