Eagles coaches have interest in Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth and free agent wide receiver Plaxico Burress, according to a Yahoo! sports report. An Eagles official declined to comment on the report, which cited an unnamed team source "familiar with the organization's thinking. " Much speculation has linked the Eagles to Burress, though the team is deep at wide receiver. Haynesworth was once a dominant defensive tackle, and the Eagles need to improve their pass rush.

Tennessee defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth was ejected early in the third quarter yesterday after he kicked Dallas center Andre Gurode in the face. Now Haynesworth expects to be punished and knows he deserves it. "What I did out there was disgusting," Haynesworth said. "It doesn't matter what the league does to me. The way I feel right now, you just can't describe it. " Julius Jones had just scored on a 5-yard run, putting Dallas up, 20-6, in what wound up as a 45-14 victory.

After dialing his number all day with no luck, Tennessee Titans defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth finally got the chance yesterday to personally apologize to Andre Gurode for tearing open the Dallas Cowboys center's face with a cleat. Haynesworth spent much of the day getting unanswered rings and a full voice-mail box, then connected in the late afternoon with Gurode, who needed 30 stitches to repair the facial cuts. "The purpose of the conversation was to apologize," said Haynesworth's agent, Chad Speck.

WE WOULD OFFER Rex Grossman the very sound advice of shutting his yap and going back to his day job. Except, he isn't very good at his day job. Grossman is the starting quarterback for the Washington Redskins. If that isn't shocking enough, and it should be, he stunningly was talking some smack about his team winning the NFC East this year. Wouldn't/couldn't make it up. "We don't need people saying we're the best right now, but when it's all said and done, I really feel like this team's gonna win the East," Grossman said in an interview with the Comcast SportsNet branch in Washington.

Defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth returned to the Tennessee Titans' headquarters yesterday after a five-game suspension for stomping on an opponent's head, the longest discipline for an on-field incident in National Football League history. Titans coach Jeff Fisher said the organization unanimously decided to allow Haynesworth to return to the team. The defensive tackle will rejoin his teammates at practice today. Haynesworth, 25, spent six weeks away from the Titans after stepping on the head of Cowboys offensive lineman Andre Gurode during an Oct. 1 game.

ALBERT Haynesworth is excited about having an opportunity to rekindle his NFL career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - One player who won't be seen on the Lehigh University practice fields is Albert Haynesworth, the former Pro Bowler/malcontent who is now a free agent. Haynesworth often is linked to the Eagles because of his close relationship with defensive line coach Jim Washburn, who coached Haynesworth in Tennessee. Even with Mike Patterson sidelined, it didn't sound as if Washburn was pushing for a Haynesworth reunion. "I think he's finished," Washburn said. "His back's degenerative.

The only better assurance of a job than being a lefthanded pitcher, it seems, is being a big, out-of-shape, defensive lineman (we have only the middle part down). Case in point: Ex-Titans, ex-Redskins, ex-Patriots defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth , who is soon to be an ex-Buccaneer, if history is any guide. While the clock ticks on his NFL career, however, Haynesworth is happy to finally be in the Tampa Bay area, after nearly signing with the Bucs in 2009. "This is where I should have been, like, three years ago," he said Thursday.

THE NEW ENGLAND Patriots took just half a season to decide they didn't need Albert Haynesworth. Two days after he sat out most of the second half against the New York Giants, the Patriots released the defensive lineman they obtained after his rocky 2-year stay with the Washington Redskins. In six games with the Patriots, Haynesworth had only six tackles and no sacks. His last play came in Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Giants when left guard David Diehl blocked him to clear the way for Brandon Jacobs' 10-yard touchdown run with 9:10 left in the third quarter.

With the New England Patriots in danger of losing three straight games for the first time since 2002, coach Bill Belichick on Tuesday sent the team a message - he released defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth. Haynesworth, traded to the Patriots on July 28 after a trouble-filled season with the Washington Redskins, was cut after sitting out most of the second half of Sunday's 24-20 loss to the New York Giants. It had cost New England only a fifth-round draft choice to obtain Haynesworth, after he spent two seasons with Washington on a seven-year, $100 million contract.

RYAN CLARK'S first fine for an illegal hit drew nothing but a remorseful nod from the Pittsburgh Steelers safety. The second fine - this one for a violent collision with Baltimore Ravens tight end Ed Dickson on Sunday night - drew his wrath. "This is the worst, period, point blank," Clark said. The Ravens were driving late in the first half when quarterback Joe Flacco tried to hit Dickson running up the seam. Dickson got his hands on the ball before Clark smashed into him. Dickson wasn't hurt on the play, though it appeared his facemask collided into the back of Clark's helmet before the ball squirted free.

Albert Haynesworth walked into the lobby of Redskins Park on the first day of free agency. After being congratulated by front-office chief Vinny Cerrato, the All-Pro defensive tackle turned and introduced his mother. Once the pleasantries were done, the parties went to work - completing the paperwork on a 7-year contract with the Washington Redskins that is worth about $100 million and includes an NFL-record $41 million in guaranteed money. "With the contract, it's going to be all on me," Haynesworth said at a news conference.
