Haynesworth Makes Solid Debut With Bucs

By Levan Reid, WBZ-TV Sports

BOSTON (CBS) – Albert Haynesworth made his debut with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, and the former Patriot performed better in one game for Tampa than he did in six for New England.

Haynesworth’s New England experience finished with three tackles and a lot of down time.  In his first game with the Bucs, Albert got the start and finished the game with five tackles and played on most of the snaps.

He even blocked an extra point by the Texans. Overall, Haynesworth didn’t help the Bucs much though as they got crushed by the Texans 37-9.

When leaving New England, Haynesworth said he wanted to play more.  He got his wish on Sunday and made the most of the situation.
