08:00 AM ET 07.28 | Bill Belichick has an expensive new experiment in Foxboro. The team acquired defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth from the Washington Redskins. ... The Patriots sent a 2013 fifth-round pick to the Redskins. The trade is contingent on Haynesworth passing his physical, which has been a bit of an issue in the past. Well, this will certainly liven up camp. There is no question that when the 6-foot-5, 320-pound Haynesworth is right, he's terrific and the best defensive lineman in football. Double teams can barely contain him as he can rush the passer and defend the run. But he hasn't been right since getting paid by the Redskins in 2009 to the tune of $115 million over seven years.

Yeah ... that worked out well while in DC ...

Looks like Belichick has been eating too much of that Chappaquiddick Cheatin' Chowdah.

That POC will be one of the big attention-getters again this pre-season.

Maybe this year's physical is putting the local McDonald's out of business in a few hours.

Until he can pass a buffet, he'll struggle to pass the physical.

Good point...

I guess Chico & Chief better wait a few minutes here before ramping up the farewell party...

Yeah... somehow I don't think showing up in shape was at the top of his priority list. It could come back to bite him in his lard-****.

Good luck with Albert.

July 28, 2011  08:23 AM ET

he basically refused to play 3-4 in DC, do they think he will like playing it better in New England?

If this physical has any mental component, it will be a fail.

July 28, 2011  08:30 AM ET

How many tries does he get to pass the physical?

July 28, 2011  08:31 AM ET

for a 5th round draft pick...sure, why not?

still kind of a monster contract... and what message does that send to the rest of the team?

however, the Pats pass rush was not so hot last year, so they needed to do "something"

(Well, it looked good when I formatted it on my screen, but they seem to think spaces should be reduced to save energy or something.)

WTF??? Do they think they can pull a Randy Moss on this guy? Why?
