Filed to ESPN: Albert Haynesworth claimed by Tampa.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 9, 2011
Bucs claimed DT Albert Haynesworth off waivers from the Patriots. It's an ideal landing spot for Haynesworth, who should be in for big snaps immediately with Gerald McCoy out for the season. It's a curious move by the Bucs, however, who now have to pick up the remainder of Haynesworth's 2011 salary and will be sticking a clubhouse cancer in the middle of an extremely young locker room. If Bill Belichick couldn't get through to Haynesworth, it's unlikely Raheem Morris will.
