Roche: Haynesworth Deal A No-Brainer For Patriots

By Dan Roche, WBZ-TV Sports

BOSTON (CBS) – We’ve been down this road before.

Corey Dillon and Randy Moss.

Great in the beginning and bitter at the end. Both players.

One helped you win a Super Bowl while the other put you in position to win one (no need to go over what happened against the New York Giants again).

Now, add All-World defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth. A giant of a man. Unquestioned talent… when motivated. Has had problems with previous coaches.  Has had problems with the law.

Bring in Bill Belichick.

Haynesworth is worth a shot. Has already made his money. Bring him in to join Vince Wilfork, Ty Warren and others on the defensive line.

If he is a good teammate, gets into shape, and conforms to the BB way… watch out. He could be an absolute steal.

If he’s trouble or not motivated… say good bye.

No harm, no foul.

A no-brainer.
