Belichick likes early work from Haynesworth
Question of the Day
Then again, it’s only been one practice.
New England picked up Haynesworth in a trade with the Redskins last week. He had a tumultuous season in Washington last year, starting with a prolonged delay at the beginning of training camp when he needed 10 days to pass his conditioning test. He also feuded with coach Mike Shanahan throughout the season and has had a number of legal troubles.
“Not speaking on any particular player, but as I’ve said many times, anytime you bring a person into the organization, you have to feel comfortable doing that and that encompasses a lot of different things,” said Belichick, who would not get into specifics on Haynesworth’s previous troubles.
“In the end, you go through the process, you get any information that you can acquire through whatever those sources are. And you evaluate the player, evaluate your team, evaluate the situation, and if you decide to bring that player onto your team, then you do that with the expectations that it will work out.
“And if you don’t, then you don’t and he’s not on your team. It’s not one thing, it’s a process.”
